[nos-bbs] How open *.txt.gz files of the list

I used gedit and you will get a warning that there was a problem
with opening the text file because of invalid characters but it opened
it anyhow with Character encoding UTF-8 and did give you the option
to retry it with another character encoding Western (ISO-8859-15)
but the text is nonsense with both encodings.

I tried it also with nano and the "converted from a MAC format" is by that
program.

I just emailed WA7NWP about it who is the administrator of that list.


73,
