If you have a shell account on crosswire.org, you can grab yourself a
copy of them there on that machine in a single (long) line:

  for i in {1999..2012} ; do for j in January February March April May
June July August September October November December ; do  wget
http://www.crosswire.org/pipermail/sword-devel/$i-$j.txt.gz ; done ; done

and then scp those anywhere you want, or stuff them into one larger
archive file with (say)

  tar cf sword-devel-archives.tar *txt.gz

and then scp that one file anywhere you want :)
