Me too!  There is no need to create separate lists when only twenty or
thirty individuals currently post on a regular basis.  How many posts
would there be if Dennis, Sandy, and Bill all stopped participating?  I
support the idea of keeping one list, but having everyone code their
"subjects" for quick sorting by the reader:

T:	technical
P:	professional
C:	computer
M:	miscellaneous (humor, etc.)

With respect to STAAD3, it shouldn't be supported by SEAoC if it isn't
being supported by the vendor.  My experience with STAAD3 has been so
negative that I am surprised whenever I find that others are still using
(or trying to use) it.
