OK, but didnt' you receive the email (direct or digest)? Here are the archives of statalist: http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/. Please also see the statalist faq, where this is mentioned. You can click on a month to see a list of messages in that month, or type in a search keyword. The link to my answer on Saturday is http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2008-09/msg01276.html .
