So are we. Remember when you used to have to Email someone bin care ofb

another portal? Ah, those were the days. <>


The list is running itself. At some point we thought of hosting it elsewhere

at some point and the list archive/search interface David Elsberry put

together is nothing short of remarkable. That was LOTS of work.


By the way, the original WWWedgesite was built around the time the internet

was young too. Itbs morphed and changed and is essentially stagnant now.

Until John severs ties with MIT, I think webre ok. I wonder whatever

happened to that TR7 hebs got in the back of a garage somewhere in Boston?

>Dear James,

Sometimes the list goes quiet because it is simply dormant like my sports

cars sitting in winter storage waiting for the winter cleanup before going

back into full throttle operation, perhaps in time for Easter.   While it

is warmer here in Northern Canada there are still glaciers in the

neighbourhood.   Afer a couple of decent rains the accumulated salt should

be off the roads and in the sewers and cars should be safe to drive.   Not

that cars can't handle the winter weather it is just that salt was and is

the enemy of old British cars.   My two sports cars survived so well

because they were not exposed to winter weather.   When Spring gets here,

there is more to say/   Many of us are simply passive observers of others

winter restoration projects.

Happy Driving
