Subject: Re: c.l.l. archives From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 31 Oct 2002 23:51:05 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * email@example.com (john) | So I tried to download the messages of the c.l.l from the news server | of my ISP (news.datazug.ch) but I can download only the messages since | 04/23/2002. As Barry says, this is actually very good. | In Google I see messages from at least 10 years. Many people who kept archives of newsgroups just quit wasting time on it when Dejanews and then Google took over that function. I am not quite sure how much money they are making and how they plan to say alive, so there is some danger in all that information getting lost. For instance, I used to archive comp.text.sgml when I still thought that SGML was a good idea and helped people with it, but that turned out not to be an effort that people were willing to pay for, but it was time-consuming and cost me money, so I quit doing it. I would suggest getting a permanent Internet connection... -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
