I have looked up the number and date of the old RMR string of Make
your own ignitor 84692 on the 17 March 97. How do I get the lod posts?
Also what type of program uses x-gzip files. I want to make some
ignitors that will burn at to 1-2 amps. Does anyone have any
recomendation on wire type and guage.
Thanks

If you do a "get filename" and leave off the .Z extension, ftp will
uncompress the file for you. This assumes you are using ftp to get
the archive. I don't remember how to do it from the web.

Once you've got the file, you can search for the post. If you want
to do it by the post number, subtract 22234 first. There is a
difference between what shows up in the summary file and the
Article # that is in the archives. This happened when I was moved
between systems and they reset the Article #'s to 1.

Hope this helps.

This factoid should be in the FAQ.
