If you look at the bottom of every message to time-nuts, there is a URL to 
unsubscribe.  That's also the subscribe and list-info page.  You probably 
used it to sign up.  (The URL even says "listinfo".)

Near the top of that page is a link to the archives.

The archives contain monthly batches.  If I wanted a local copy of 
everything, I'd look at the URL pattern and write a script to retrieve them 
all, then figure out how to unzip them and put things into a format I wanted.

For most topics, you can find what you want with google and then poke around 
through the archives via the web pages.  That probably doesn't work as well 
if you don't know what you are looking for and just want to browse the 
archives using a mail program that you are familiar with.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
