i've noticed :-) but that's only part of the problem. another is that
sci.engr.heat-vent-ac was created only after a large usenet community
voting process approved the group for distribution with its present
10-year-old charter. i suppose that cannot be changed without another
vote, even though paul, don, bill and others would like to change it
and hijack the group into something different. i think of them as
nixonian creeps :-)

sci.engr.heat-vent-ac used to have lots of depth in the form of posters
like harriman, banfleth, and other university scientists and pes and
people who've written chapters in ashrae tech handbooks. i like to think
they are still out there and they may come back.
