	I'm not sure you understand the nature of this mailing list.  The 
only real purpose for this list is to act as a gateway to the USENET 
newsgroup comp.protocols.time.ntp, for those people who do have 
access to e-mail but may not have easy access to a newsreader, or who 
prefer an e-mail interface instead of a news interface.

	While I am sending you a copy of this reply by e-mail, it is 
entirely possible that others may respond only on the newsgroup, and 
if you're not subscribed to the list at the time that reply is 
posted, you may not see the response.

version 4.0.94, which was about six years ago (see 

	I'm not sure where older historical data may be kept.  Perhaps 
there will be other people here who have been here longer than I 
have, and who may know where the older data is available.  If so, I 
hope that you see their reply.
