Good morning Samy I have a feeling the best person to answer this post is probably Ron himself, however Ron's plate is quite full lately and it may be some time before he has the opportunity to reply in any detail. Regarding the Yahoogroups archives and the previous post. Can you narrow down When it might have been posted meaning a particular month/week ? Was there something specific in the post that might help narrow it down from others about fans meaning a specific word/phrase that stood out that might help distinguish it ? Do you recall who Ron may have been replying to (knowing the original poster might help narrow your search). What about the Complete subject line of the original discussion might help to find the post you are after. Another thought, are you sure it was a post to this list ? on this listserver ? Ron tends to post to a variety of lists (when he has spare time <g>), there is also the possibility that it might have been posted to the list after the move so it would be in the new listserver archives and not the yahoogroups archives Hopefully that gives you some ideas/suggestions on things to search for to find the post you want.
