I went one further, and loaded the old AltaVista desktop search tool, extracted all the usenet, added .txt extensions to make Windows happy, and converted them to something IIS can deal with, then setup Apache to de-mangle the pages, and a stunnel connection from Apache to the AltaVista desktop search as it only listens on .. So the upshot is that you can search the usenet archive via AltaVista




I know there is a million ‘modern’ ways to do this, but I had though this was cooler.

I've exploded the Unix-related parts of the Usenet archive from UTZoo,

so you can look here for more Tahoe postings:
