Is this a temporary problem or how can we find another solution. I find the archives a very good reference and used them often... 

actually the problem is the web-server, which is currently working with 
 >100% cpu-load.
this (i guess) is mainly due to the pure-data.org-portal.
a lot of people have actually subscribed to the pure-data.org and they 
are doing lots of stuff, espacially storing files in the 
backend-database, which makes the database extremely big (>2GB already) 
nad thus slow.

Of course this was not the (our=IEMs) intention of the portal-thing and 
we were not prepared for such an amount of data.
Since it slows down a lot of our services significantly, it is planned 
to migrate the pure-data.org portal to a dedicated server in the near 
future (next week).

Hopefully then the mailing-list archive will be faster too....
