[REBOL] [Ann] Mailing list archive - a new home

From: SunandaDH::aol::com at: 14-Jan-2004 20:13

THE SITUATION This Mailing List hasn't had a good archive for a while: --Escribe stopped listing messages in the middle of last year 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! THE ANNOUNCEMENT 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 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 page. We'll add that when it's official. 4. No on-site search engine yet. That'll be a few weeks yet. LIBRARY MEMBERS You don't need to be a library member to read the ML archive -- it's a public resource. 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, Sunanda<
