[FRIAM] Archiving Friam conversations as editable text.

Sorry, Glen.  

I keep seeming to have to apologize to you.  Apologies are not really repeatable, in my book, so it worries me.  Hm!  That's a meta-apology, I guess. 

Anyway, thanks for reminding me.  I am not sure I got the final stroke in that conversation or was just feckless.  If the latter, ugh!

Of course.  It'll take the exact same plain text format of the file on the Peirce conversation I sent you awhile back.  You sent a response about your tools thinking it was some weird format ("djvu"?).  I responded that it was merely a plain text file, but never heard back from you.

Anyway, I've saved everything (I think) FriAM has sent me since mid-Feb 2008.  Mind you, the list seems to be a bit fickle, which is why I created 2 accounts and noticed the archive going down.  One address would receive posts that the other didn't.  Other people would not have seen posts I quoted from.  Etc.  So, it's easy to assert that my archive will be incomplete.  But I'm happy to upload it somewhere if you have a use for it.

I used to take pride in retaining a copy of every e-mail I'd received since 1995 or so.  Learning that only Bad Actors like Cambridge Analytica and Paladin care about such things has shamed me into deleting e-mail willy nilly.
