What Was In the Newsletters from 2005 to 2008?

Prior to the launch of the first MAFL website (which was MoS' original name), MAFL content was provided to subscribers by way of an e-mailed newsletter. All the MAFL Newsletters are available for download in the MAFL - The Early Years section.

Initially, especially in 2005 and 2006, my analyses were simple, and I provide those e-mails here mainly for historical completeness. There are a handful of newsletters from 2007 and 2008, however, that contain content that's less ephemeral.  Since the site search facility doesn't pickup the content of these newsletters directly, here's a guide to the ones I think are most interesting.
