make good use of the offline archive. I know Jody is interested in
archives of the lists in the event Yahoo decreases storage space suddenly
and we lose these archives. I'm sure a lot of folks might be interested in
what you've already archived.
Are you leaving them in a text format, or doing something else with the

but forgot to post to the group. It is an alternative to the
Menu clip contained in the Clip Assistant.
[I am a bit upset at the Yahoo software for not letting me
preview/edit the notification message after I uploaded the file.
I was hoping to make it and this message just one message.]
To use it, just double click items in the listbox until you find
the item you want.
I believe my version has several advantages over the clip
currently in the clip assistant.
* Data is separate from the main clip. This makes it very easy
to update data to fix any errors, or to accomodate changes in
future NoteTab versions.
* Makes it clear which options open a deeper menu, and which
refer to menu commands that cause dialog boxes.
* My clip works very well from the clipbar.
* Uses just listboxes, opened to correct size. (I do not know
why the clip in the clip assistant's clip uses so many combo boxes.
They are inefficient in such a context.)
* Clip is logically structured and fully commented. This makes
it good for study by those trying to learn the clip language.
(Though since most of the activity of the clip involves reading
data from the second clip and making it into a listbox - it is
not necessarily an easy clip to follow or the most interesting to

Custom Functions with a title to remind me that this is where the
definitions for ^& ^? ^* and ^** are. Hopefully the next time I need one
of them, I'll remember I stashed the link in Favorites ;-)

I think I was accidentally inventing my own abbreviation. Its "code" is

Yahoo's going with YahooGroups. I find it amusing how upset people get;
afterall it is a free service. (I do realize the time people invest in
lists; afterall I have moved mine to a different server <G>.)
