Google shows 76 threads in which you've participated from 1-Jul to 30-Sep in
*.misc - 39 in July, 11 in August, and 26 in September. Note: this is threads
count, so if you posted several replies in some threads, your total count would
be higher.

FWIW, most ISP newsservers don't store more than a week or two of posts to any
newsgroup. If you want to see what you've sent, you could e-mail yourself your
posts. Then again, most newsreader software packages store your sent messages,
though not necessarily in threaded form. You probably do have copies of what you
sent. If you want to see them in context, there's always Google.

Never attach files.
Snip unnecessary quoted text.
Never multipost (though crossposting is usually OK).
Don't change subject lines because it corrupts Google newsgroup archives.
