I can understand why Renzo would want such a URL.  He would like
to have a bookmark which takes him straight to a page listing
the latest Statalist postings, no matter in which month those
postings are made.

The way the Statalist archives work right now, each posting is
put in a directory with a name matching the current month, such
as

   http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2003-12/

We have added a little script to the web site to do what
Renzo wishes.  If he or anyone else creates a bookmark that
points at

   http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/current.html

their browser will automatically be redirected to the current
month's 'thread index'.  If the 'date index' is preferred, the
bookmark should be set to

   http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/current.html?type=date
