New group features

As some of you already know, eGroups has now been folded into the Yahoo groups family. If you're solely an e-mail user, don't worry, you don't have to change anything.

If you use the web site, you'll probably need to do some housekeeping next time you connect. It's not TOO painful.

The good news is, there are some new and useful web features:

1. When looking at the message list, you can expand it to show the full text of messages, not just the headings. Almost as good as an archive, which unfortunately is still absent. You can select how many messages are displayed in your preferences.

2. Even better, there's now a search function (I guess eGroups had something too, but it didn't seem to work very well if I recall). Type in a search term (e.g., Vineland, MkIV, SQ, 549 :-), and up pops a message list with all messages containing the term...
