If the bionet archive at net.bio.net doesn't suit you, try the one
at ftp.bio.indiana.edu. You can gopher or ftp there, and find
past articles grouped by month in Network-News/bionet/ (/usenet/bionet
by ftp). If you go by gopher, then you can also use the indexed
search of bionet news to pick out past articles.
