I've worked with a few different versions over the years and this one is a scanned facsimile copy that was also made searchable. It's huge (155 MB) and I'm trying to simmer it down a bit (edit, I did and it's around 100 MB now).
Given the media intensity given to the Covid 19 (otherwise known as Corona or Wuhan) virus, there seems no reason to have posts on that very specific subject in several forums Accordingly, all of those posts will be moved to "Headlines". All new items on that subject should be posted there as well. This notice will expire on 31 May, or be extended if needed. Thanks, folks.
