This is the latest version of all of the Group Messages that I archived from the group. It is missing some of the very recent messages and I will get those soon. This is a very large file and will take some time to download it so please be patient. I put it here so only registered members can gain access to the file and data.

This can be very handy when you load it into Microsoft Word and do searches on specific terms that you may have interest in. For example, I did a search for 8SE with the option of "whole words only" and was able to glean information about the use of the Nexstar 8SE with the Satellite Tracker program. This is a very valuable file and should provide a vast amount of information that has transpired over the years.

I am using Microsoft Word 2010 on a Dell XPS 17, i7, 8 Mb RAM, and it loads 7,207 pages in 45 seconds. The file is on my local hard drive, C:. Results may vary from user to user and computer to computer so please take that into account.
