[REBOL] [Ann] Mailing list archive - a new home
From: SunandaDH::aol::com at: 14-Jan-2004 20:13
This Mailing List hasn't had a good archive for a while:
--Escribe stopped listing messages in the middle of last year
--REBOL.net exposes only the last month or so
Graham Chiu took the initiative, and a great big step to rectifying that,
when he announced, a few weeks ago, the availability of the archive back to 2000
on his site:
But unfortunately, Graham's website does not have the bandwidth to allow
search engine spiders to index the archive, so the messages would remain invisible
to Google and others. REBOL is already too much of a well-kept secret!
Graham's generously given us his archive, we've nicked his design, and picked
over his brain with endless questions ("How did we get messages from the year
2024!?") and generally been very patient and helpful while we've transferred
the archive to REBOL.org.
Take a look please at:
and let me know what needs fixing.
THE FINE PRINT
Not everything is finished yet:
1. The Date Index page that shows the number of messages per month should
take you to an index page showing the titles of each message for that month.
Right now, it takes you direct to the first message.
2. The archive is complete only up to 24-dec-2003. It is unlikely to have
more recent messages added for a couple of weeks. After that, it should stay in
step with the ML.
3 No link yet from the main REBOL.org page. We'll add that when it's official.
4. No on-site search engine yet. That'll be a few weeks yet.
You don't need to be a library member to read the ML archive -- it's a public
But, if you are, and you are logged on, then your scrolling preference (how
many items per page) is used when showing the various index lists.
Thanks again to Graham for getting this started,
