Tips on using Deja News?

    I'm interested in looking at a lot of the old Usenet (RGVA) discussions regarding VF3 since way back in the day.

    I've been trying to use Deja News (www.dejanews.com), but I've been quite unsuccessful... Any advice on using it? Any other usenet databases or search engines you could recommend for me to use in this pursuit?

    p.s. Guess I finally am finding what I'm looking for. However, I can't really find messages beyond 1999... Maybe I'm hoping it really will have stuff from beyond... Maybe it does? Just read a humorous post by a regular here (though an often perceived-as bitter one *hint*). Apparently *HE* has the biggest penis... I guess.<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by Chanchai on 10/11/00 05:03 PM.</FONT></P>

    lol, I remember that post :)

    As for Deja, you'll have noticed that all posts prior to May 15, 1999 are temporarily unavailable. You might want to ask them when they plan on having them available again?

    i think i saw a site that had all the vf stuff
    archived. it shouldn't be hard to find.

    oh good thing i remember these things. i think you are referring to jason la's vf3 complex page. it's being hosted on kris amico's (of the vf miscellany fame) site right now. you can find it at: <blockquote>http://www.gawbleserv.com/vfcomplex/</blockquote> check the archives section.

    Though many of the links are dead, I'm still enjoying the site :)

    Let us not forget Kris Amico's site

    www.krisamico.com/vf3

    Thanks to Clopin for pointing out VF3 Complex, which lead me to some other old sites I either haven't seen or haven't seen in awhile. However, I can't believe I never saw VF3 Misc. (the site above). Something for the newcomers to appreciate, enjoy, though it's primarily ob, I just love the effort he put into that site when he did. Heck, that site proved to me I'm not the only VFer from Portlan, OR!!! (Though I've been aware of people near Grants Pass, but that's hours down South and I may as well drive to No-Cal if I go down there, but would love to meet them if they're still around).

    Anyways, a good amount of translation of some of the character tapes, some pointers and experimental play with at least all characters, and some other stuff made this site very enjoyable for me. Props to Kris, however long ago he put all this effort (with whomever his partners were) for this site.

    I think it just died, Jim....

    *sigh*

    I think VF3Complex just died... (I backed it up though, but it's always sad to see another VF site go down...)
