Subject: [THIN] Thin List Archives are now also once again 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:

 

http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/thin/

 

AND 

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.

Jim Kenzig
