Yeah, I was thinking about that. I'll see what I can do. How important is 
it that the compressed vesions be up-to-date at the moment of download? I 
could easily have cron compress them once daily, but that would leave out 
up to 24 hours of messages.

This would be really, really easy, actually. I'll put this on the list of 
things to do.

It's helpful when people tell me how they (want to) use the page--the 
improvements I make are much less haphazard that way. :)
