I have all the 2000 and 2001 digests archived in separate FileMaker Pro (v3.0) databases. Well, almost all. Even I don't have the original LisaList Digest #1 from 6/19/00. If anyone on the list would like these two archives, email <listmom_at_email.domain.hidden> and tell me which year(s) you want.

The Maclaunch mail/list server has had some teething problems. Some lists have had to be recreated from scratch a few times, which results in the numbering sequence restarting at 1.

The first digest #1 apparently went out on 6/10/00. That was handled by Macjordomo on a Mac at home, back when I was paying through the nose for 24/7 access via ISDN. We moved this and all the other lists to MacLaunch in August 2000.

The second digest #1 was 8/1/00.

LisaList Digest #1 was also produced on 9/17, 9/19 (two different ones!), and 9/20/00.

We managed to get up to Digest #61 before the next MacLaunch meltdown. The most recent Digest #1 came out on 1/20/01 -- and we've been numbering sequentially ever since. ;-)
