[Xmca-l] Re: The Concepts of CHAT

Is there a website somewhere that these sorts of things can be archived?
E.g., I just noticed that XMCA's (kinda clunky!) home page has links to
videos from 2010 and 2008 but nothing more recent.

Seems a shame for this link only to appear on Andy's page and in this email
that will soon be buried...

Anyone have any ideas?
