Thanks. I appreciate the kind words. And I also know I could do better. 
Thank you as well for helping out with the admin work for the OSList.

I couldn't see an easy way to see the count via the Archives. But 
looking at my own stash of the emails, I counted 42.9k messages since 
the first one in December of 1996 back in the old Boise State University
