old newsgroup archive ??

Post by Stef » Mon Aug 29, 2005 10:57 am

hi Sergey,

is it possible to get the old newsserver on line for a few days,
so we can download all the previous messages
and store it in our own archive ?

It was always a great source of information for me !

thanks,

Unfortunately, I was not able to contact the newsgroup server owners for the quite a long time. I still do not know the status of this archive. I still hope it's not damaged when of the server was crashed.
In the worst case, I have copies of all my answers to the newsgroup.
In the best case, newsgroups will be opened in read-only mode, and I'll try to find a way to convert them in a searchable archive file.

thanks.

if you don't succeed, there may be someone on the list who has an archive (in Mozilla is one of the standard settings),
(I do it for a number of newsgroups, but not for richview, because I found it very stable and fast in the air again after a crash :-(


cheers,

I do have copies of the all the old newsgroup messages. I think that I can export them in some sort of readable format from XanaNews. Let me know if you want me to look into this. ([email protected])
