The Old List Archive

[The Old List Archive, designed to archive and search the messages from June 1998 to August 1999 in the original Zachariah Dutton mailing list, was my very first database application for the Web. It is fairly simple, but has stood the test of time. I’ve left my original documentation intact, as it was in 2003.]

The Archive

In July 2003, I finally did what I should have done years ago — I created a searchable archive for the first year of the list, which I now dub “the Old List”. There is a wealth of information contained in these messages, which I hope will prove useful to you.

Using old e-mail files from five years ago that I only recently discovered, I have reconstructed what I hope to be a mostly complete archive of the Old List. There are at present around three hundred messages in the archive, ranging from June 1998 to August 1999.
