    ebay last month may have been directly responsible for sending the final
    price through the roof."
    The evidence points another way. After a bit of sleuthing, I've been in
    touch with the successful bidder, a retired airline pilot in California, who
    has quite a collection of air navigation devices. and he and I have
    exchanged some amicable emails.
    He was unaware of Navlist (or our discussions about Zerbee) until I brought
    it to his attention and suggested he might join. He has since told me that
    he has met problems when attempting to do so, so perhaps I told him wrong. I
    don't know if his attempts have been successful since. If so, and if he is
    reading this, it might be useful if he said "hello".
    If he doesn't, then I'll pass his email address off-list to Frank, and
    perhaps Frank will take it from there.
    Frank's suggestion can't be responsible, then, for our failure to buy,
    though our discussions, if the runner-up happened to be aware of them (which
    we can't know), might conceivably have affected the ultimate price that was
    paid by the buyer. However, the successful bidder, unaware, was nevertheless
    determined enough to pay far more than was in our kitty, so those
    discussions can not have influenced that aspect of the result.
    That brings me to another point. If search engines are bringing in so many
    visitors to the archive, why not invite them in, by including joining
    instructions with each archived and listed message?
    Our listed messages include, at the foot (as this one will) instructions on
    finding the archive, posting, and unsubscribing, but, for some reason, not
    on subscribing. Why ever not?
