Hi All,
With some changes Yahoo made recently to Yahoogroups, I have finally been
able to open up for viewing/searching the Thin List archives that have been
saving to Yahoogroups.  Years ago (6/2002) I accidently set the list
at Yahoo to private and was never able to change it back because of yahoo.
It made it so no one could see the list,  so I moved the list to
Freelists,org. But THIN kept archiving and having messages saved at

For those that don't know the Thin list has been around since early
1997. The Thin.net Thin list was first on online website called Onelist,
which got purchased by Egroups whom got purchased by YahooGroups.  The
archives of the list pretty much stayed in place during these transitions.
 The archives at Yahoo date all the way back until April 2000! The archives
from 1996-2000 exist on the rare Thin Net archives CD that I produced years
ago, as I ran it on my own personal servers for those 3 years back in those

Now EVERYONE can see, search and access the Yahoogroups Thin List archives!!
Over 143,000 messages!!

  If you don't like the freelists archive search at
//www.freelists.org/archive/thin this is a new option for you.

So another version of the Thin List archives that dates back  further than
the Freelists archives is available here:


This also gives you an additional RSS feed to use for the list at

(note that Freelists also has an RSS feed of the list at
http://feeds.feedburner.com/freelists-feeds/thin )

(ALSO Note you *can't *subscribe/unsubscribe or manage any of your
settings to the Thin list or do anything at Yahoo other than look at the
archives, you will still have to do all changes you want at Freelists.)

Hopefully this will give you all another great resource and choice for
finding answers from the archives.  I am  also hoping by opening the yahoo
archives up that they will also get better indexed in the Yahoo search
