Every time I delete rainbowfish list menages from my computer I wonder about
the information content of such a rainbow fish FAQ list.

I wonder if some one has kept rainbowfish list messages for a long time.
How long has this list been in existence. If such a rainbow fish
archive does exist how many mega bite is it.

There is a wonderful search program called "AltaVista Search Personal eXtension"
This is a "dictionary" type of search engine. That is after the dictionary is
created from all the words in a local hard drive, word searches over the
entire data base, which could be huge, are almost instantaneous.
Evaluation trial copies of this program were free downloads.

A bible on the other hand would require some real work; editing the list
