I just tried from a different computer using a different web browser
with the same results.

I was wondering about this notation on the page though:

Note:The archive search index was last rebuilt at Thursday, 08 Feb 2007
06:16:51 UTC. Any postings after that will not be found by a search.
Index rebuild is usally done once every 24 hours for this list. You can
use a "View by date" link below to access more recent postings.

Is there any specific reason that the archive has not been re-index in
over three years? I don't remember the date of the post I wasx
referring to, so that could become a rather long process.
