The Rob Warnock Lisp Usenet Archive

I've been reading and enjoying comp.lang.lisp for over 10 years. I find it important to ignore the noise and seek out material from authors that clearly have something interesting and informative to say.

Rob Warnock has posted neat stuff for many years, both in comp.lang.lisp and comp.lang.scheme. After creating the Erik Naggum archive, Rob was next on my list of authors to archive. It took me a few years, but here it is: the Rob Warnock Lisp Usenet archive. It has 3,265 articles from comp.lang.lisp and comp.lang.scheme from 1995 to 2009, indexed and searchable. I hope it helps you find as many useful articles as I have over the years.

Here are a few articles I've saved and shared over the years:
There are many, many more, but I hope this gets you interested in finding some on your own Enjoy!

(In case you're curious, I used a library called usenet-legend to create the archive and make it searchable. I also have some unreleased code that provides a thin layer of web interface on top of usenet-legend.)
