I'm having trouble connecting as well. Must be a temporary problem as
www.debian.org is usually very realiable.

Try lists.debian.org. There are searchable archives there, good for checking
to see if your question has been asked 1K times. :)

Not that I'm aware of -- I remember some discussion on this topic a while

the list address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
