Re: We must preserve the Cypherpunks Mailing List archives! IMPORTANT!

I managed the extract that file successfully.

I uploaded the extract to GitHub if you wanna just git clone it instead:

Seems legit except 'extract' has been chewing on the file for 45 minutes
now without spitting out any useful bits that I can see, while 'top'
indicates 99% of CPU cycles dedicated to the task.  It's kind of
reassuring that 'extract' reports files in "GNU tar format" were found.
But @126 MB I would expect /most/ archive files of this size to unpack
in way less than a minute here.


Has anybody got a verifiably useful copy?
