comp.lang.ada archive

I'm not fond of Google Groups, so I built my own archive of the comp.lang.ada newsgroup.


The earliest messages here were copied from the net.lang.ada group, which was renamed to comp.lang.ada in 1986. If you have messages from either of these groups that aren't in the archive, I'd love to include them.

Where practical, an additional Date header has been added to each message in ISO 8601 format to aid in chronological sorting. Where no timezone was given, UTC is assumed. Early messages routed via UUCP were often delayed by days as indicated by the difference between the Posted and Date-Received timestamps. In most cases, I use the value from the Posted timestamp.

A spam filter has been applied to the archive. Many thousands of advertisements for prescription drugs, sex acts, spiritual salvation, and prejudice have been removed. I do not wish to host this type of content and are actively working to train better filters and remove spam that slipped through.

This archive is updated hourly via NNTP.
