IRFCA Mailing List Archive
IRFCA started life as a mailing list in 1989 and was hosted on a succession of mailing list servers, including Yahoo Groups before moving to its current home as a discussion forum on the IRFCA server. (See About IRFCA for more on the history of IRFCA.)
The pre-Yahoo messages are available here. Spanning the period from August 1989 through November 1999, they comprise 9,527 individual posts. Later messages from the Yahoo Group operated mailing list are no longer available to view on the web. There is an effort to convert them into viewable web pages and they will be linked from this page when ready.
Index of Messages
Note: The conversion of the messages from their original Unix mail format and other formats to these web pages has not been straightforward, and you will find several formatting inconsistencies. Some messages are also missing and this archive is not complete since messages were saved in many places and in different formats. Please excuse these problems. Also, an effort has been made to obfuscate e-mail addresses of message authors to avoid spam and other problems since this archive is public.
The messages in the archive are grouped into sets of 20 messages. The index links to the first message of each set; each entry below shows the sequential number of the first message of a set, along with its date.
