I'm a relative newcomer to the list (2005?) so Grant has more/better
answers. In an attempt to help you answer questions #2 & #4, I'll
point you toward "PART 3: GENERAL LIST INFO AND HISTORY" in the
NewtonTalk FAQ <http://newtontalk.net/faq>, specifically the "What
happened to Planet Newton running the list?" & "What the heck does
that mean??" sections. :)
