These are all humongously hugely long text files, but they contain the complete archives and records of our discussions all the way up until yahoo quit saving them. From Mar 13, 2001, when we first started to realize the inevitable was happening and started to set up the new list, through Nov of 2019 when Yahoo quit archiving the messages and essentially deleted everything that was sent afterwards.
These archives include headers, html formatting and other stuff, so they can be a little bit difficult to sort through. But if you don’t mind that, and using a good text reader, they’re a lot of fun. Enjoy!
