alt.binaries*

Along with the archives here, PCM-Productions publishes CD-ROMs that include several of the alt.binaries* groups.

alt.binaries.clip-art

alt.binaries.fonts

alt.binaries.multimedia

alt.binaries.pictures.celebrities

alt.binaries.pictures.fine-art.d

alt.binaries.pictures.fine-art.digitized

alt.binaries.pictures.fine-art.graphics

alt.binaries.pictures.fractals This only goes back some days, but even that can be quite a help for a binaries newsgroup.

alt.books.reviews, but only from 19 October 1992 to 2 March 1993.

a.c.c has a variety of archives, best introduced (and mirrored) by Joel. Hubert "Yukipuma" Bartels maintains an archive of compressed alt.cyberpunk.chatsubo postings spanning the last several years. He asks that downloaders confine accesses to weekends and evenings. Dan McDonald archives his own postings. Kevin Lincoln Flynn is alleged to keep WWW archives of his stories, but I have yet to succeed at entering his site. Meanwhile, many of the contributors who appear in The Chatsubo Author Database [give ref] have private collections which they share through email.

alt.fan*

alt.fan.cecil-adams (FTP)
alt.fan.cecil-adams (HTTP) The articles are kept according to the date of publication in the format of MM.DD.YY. The 2 September, 1994 article has the name "09.02.94", and the September 23rd article "09.23.94". These archives extend only to the Aug. 8, 1994 article. krikket@mcs.com invites people who have copies of previous articles to pass them along; they'll be added to the collection.

alt.fan.gene-scott

alt.fan.oj-simpson.transcripts

alt.fan.tank-girl. Selected posts from before the archive's December 1998 opening appear at related "talk" and "takeover" pages.

Its FAQ claims that there is an archive for the alt.filesystems.afs newsgroup, but I haven't yet figured out how to access it from AFS-ignorant browsers. Good luck.

alt.folklore.gemstones

alt.folklore.herbs

alt.food.fat-free

alt.fun.with.steve. Michael Bauser aptly calls this a "vanity archive". It looks like the URL most likely to populate the intersection of the Index to Archives and the Useless Web Pages.

alt.fun.with.tobin

alt.games.gb [Berkeley]
alt.games.gb [MIT]

The alt.gourmand story is a bit complicated. More-or-less the same newsgroup has been called, successively, mod.recipes, alt.gourmand, and rec.food.recipes. Brian Reid moderated the first two brilliantly, and they share their archive.

Anyone know of an archive site for postings to alt.music.byrds? I haven't found one, but readers of this popular newsgroup have asked.
