I've wanted to join this thread and would like to make the following

It would be interesting to do a webgrid for each member of a listserve
who gives their birthtime. Elements are members/signs and constructs are
astrological as well as articulated reviewed constraints of listserve

Members will come and go but some patterns may become resistant to
change. A chain-mail and webgrid client is available from my homepage
for this purpose and there is also the 'webgrid service' at calgary.
Mine has the advantage of having me to be able to customize it as a
commercial product to be licensed to listserve archiving data

Would you give this proposal some thought?
