250Kb for both? We are talking overall message size, body + headers. 
I see some peoples GPG-signing their messages as well.

Are you in UK by any chance? Because there was a precedent recently.. :)

Noted, OK.

Its homepage is currently on the separate URL of www.silverstones.com.
I was thinking of adding some visibility and (hopefully!) attracting new
people by moving it to a second-level domain, for example:
* tbli.st
* tbl.ist
* tblist.com
* ...

In general, I am concerned about TB future as RitLabs seem to be in a 
stable decline during the last decade and I see little initiative from 
their side to improve the situation.

https://www.silverstones.com/ returns self-signed certificate.
Could you upload archive of the currently available information?

Self-hosted Mailman (https://list.org) is a de-facto standard. We can push 
archives to GitHub and archive.org for historical preservation.

Due to the lack of official WIKI... Shall we create un-official one?
There is an active German TheBat! forum, some members might be willing 
to help us.
