Eric, I'm amazed at the level of dedication and interest you have demonstrated. When I'm away from my computer for a few days, I tend to dump all the accumulated Virus posts and just pick up the threads in their evolved states.

I have spent a lot of time on Virus. Reading the archive was a major hobby last summer -- I read through literally dozens of e-mails that were over a meg in size. It was time very well spent, in my opinion.

I do intend to finish the job some time -- to go at it and read all the rest. The job is actually less than half done, in terms of numbers of posts to Virus. This summer will probably see me advance another couple of years through the archive, probably faster per message, since technically, I have read them before, beyond about Feb '97.
