available at Yahoo Groups!!!
        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 Yahoogroups. 
        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 days. 
        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 http://rss.groups.yahoo.com/group/thin/rss
        (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 engine.
