PC: Web site update (yeah, really!)

Hello fellow listers,

Today I made some updates to the Penn Central Railroad Home Page web site 
for the first time in three months. I added a number of Eastern Region 
track charts to the Official Track Charts page. I also finished uploading 
the rest of the archive of the Penn Central Mailing List (this list). 
Previously, I hadn't yet uploaded a couple of years worth of messages. 
Those have all been updated, and I also generated new monthly indexes up 
through May 2003 (last month). My only regret is that the archives are not 
searchable, but you can browse them by message or by thread.

If you'll let me ramble for a moment, I'll admit that I was having thoughts 
lately about no longer updating and maintaining the PC web site. Between 
working 40+ hours a week, maintaining my house and yard, building a model 
railroad, taking train pictures, and trying to spend time with family and 
friends, I was seriously considering just letting the web site go. But, I 
finally decided to keep going at it for a while longer. I probably just 
won't update it as frequently as before, although I will likely end up 
giving the site a makeover in the next couple of months. The last time I 
did a site redesign was at least four or five years ago...and it looks like 
it. (Anyone know of some good resources on using Cascading Style Sheets? If 
so, reply to me off-list.)

Also, I noticed while uploading the mailing list archives that we used to 
generate up to 270 messages per month on this list. I think we might have 
had that many messages over the past *year*. I know we had a hit last 
summer with technical problems that kept the list offline for about three 
months, and it hasn't quite been the same since. Don't get me wrong...my 
ego doesn't depend on how much traffic goes across this list, but what I'm 
saying is that the list is here as a resource for Penn Central fans 
everywhere, so feel free to use it!

Thanks for listening, and have a good night...
