Currently all past discussions (since the list moved to forum.swarthmore.edu) can be recovered in monthly files. Eventually we'll sort these, but monthly is the best we do fully automatically.

If you really don't have access to ftp, let me know, and I'll post instructions on how to get them via our mail server.

When our flood of summer workshops is over (some time in the middle of August), I'll work on making nctm-l a standard part of our archiving of threads at the Forum. Until then, you'll have to read by the month.
If you are new to an online community like nctm-l, that's like walking into the middle of a cocktail party. You don't reintroduce the topics that people were just discussing for the last half hour without seeing what they've been saying.

When better archives are available, that will be part of the welcome message that you get when you subscribe to the list.
