Yes, we were going to announce this a bit later, but yup, it's true, the
archives have been succesfully moved to their new home! :) Only thing
still left to do is to update the links at linuxdj.com.

Oops, sorry about that. :) I'm used to the Finnish google.fi URL, and that
slipped in by accident. The page is now fixed and submits the searches to
google.com, which is probably the correct default behaviour.

Not that I'm aware of. We used to have a dedicated htdig search, but I'm
not able to provide this service anymore (still a web based search, not
limiting to message contents). And even if someone would offer to host the
htdig service, I'm not volunteering for the job. :) Keeping the dedicated
search up and running (and debugging why certain searches don't work as
expected) can be a bit of a burden, so relying on google.com,
search.msn.com (both of which have already crawled the whole new lalists
site) and other competitors seems like a nice option to me.
PS If you do put up your own archive sites, please apply some
anti-spam measures to the email addresses before putting them online
(and especially if you put whole mboxes online). The current
mailman archives (only replacing @ with " at ") are already an easy
target for address harvesters. In the current archive at
lalists.stanford.edu, I've chosen to hide the tail of email addresses
completely to make sure no automated script can harvest subscriber
addresses. This only applies to newer messages, older ones are
protected by a weaker mechanisms (similar to the default mailman
Audio software for Linux!
