This is one of the dreams I have for SASHelp.com - it would just be a
lot of work. If there is enough interest a database of sas-l and
comp.soft-sys.sas postings could be built that goes back to day 1 with
complete searching and grouping capabilities. A sas-l mailing agent
that would search incoming messages for certain keywords or email
addresses could also be built to filter the messages we receive.
Just random ideas - anyone think such a database would be useful?

I wasn't aware that SUGI papers could be reposted without SI's
permission?! (well, really without buying the CD from SI). If this is
the case I'd be eager to post all of the SUGI papers on sashelp.com
