Neijia Archives

gone for now - well you may be able to find some here. (What goes on the Net stays on the Net.)
Ingo Austen was going to put them up somewhere, sometime.
For other Neijia related things start here.
Otherwise, join the neijia list - they appear to have a private archive now which is probably preferable to a public archive of a private list anyway.
