    The CONCH-L ARCHIVES
    These archives include both web versions and log files.
    The current web archives are up-dated each night and therefore will not have the postings to this group from today until tomorrow. On the first and fifteenth of each month the archived postings are moved to another area on the server to make room for the next batch of postings.
    http://listserv.uga.edu/archives/conch-l.html

    To search the archives, go to: http://listserv.uga.edu/archives/conch-l.html
    Then click on "Search the archives".
    Enter words such as: conotoxin radula CONIDA Conus envenomation "cone shell" textile geographus etc.
    Works well.
