I think you need to ask a few questions before you toss that kind of nonsense out.

For your info - this is a hobby. It is done in spare time. The time period you speak of - the archives have NOT been lost. Because unlike what you intone - we do care. Those archives are safe and sound, just not in a publicly accessible format. One of our kind listmembers has been working for eons to reconstruct the publicly viewable content from them.

I will tell him that you are going to volunteer to help him.

I detected that links I had to previous postings where invalid. Looking at


I see that the archives before November 2014 are lost. When I look into the WayBackMachine I see


that between October 25th. 2014 and January 3rd, 2015 some incident happened which wiped out the archives before November 2014.

How comes that the 'classical computing' lost it's memory ??

         With best regards,   Walter

P.S.: It's a bit astonishing to me that a list like cctech, which is
       in some ways about history, has lost it's own history, and even
       doesn't seem to care about it.
