I use to hang out on IBM-MAIN mailing list, too. While they are,
mostly, dealing with modern mainframes and current problems, they also
occasionally mention old story or two. Actually, since mainframe is
such a living fossil thing, the whole talk sometimes feels as if it
was about something upgraded continuously from the 1960-ties. Most of
it is uncomprehensible to me (never had proper mainframe training, or
unproper one, and they deal with stuff in unique way, have their own
acronyms for things, there are some intro books but there is not
enough time*energy), but also a bit educating - a bit today, a bit
next week etc.

Web stuff, requiring Javascript to work, ugh, ugh-oh. Mostly, it boils
down to the fact that one cannot easily curl the text from those other
places (AFAICT). So it is hard to awk this text into mbox format and
read it comfortably.
