I did a search, got back a lot of results, but they point to files in 
/home/petidomo/public_html/lists/... rather than /~petidomo/lists/...

Search in particular was for 'Cold', preferring older entries and had 
pulled items from Wout's list and the early 97 archives.  modifying the 
URL allowed me to see the articles.

Other than that, it looked good and seems to work nicely.
