10/13/02 - The forums interface to the lists is going down. There's been a lack of interest and the yearly fee is due- an informal poll showed that most folks either didn't use it or didn't need it. The Usenet version, YahooGroups mirror and mailing lists will remain.
7/28/02 - New mailman software has been installed and a new MIME filter is in place.
2/6/02 - There is a mirror of the AT-L available on Yahoo Groups, for folks who use that service. Note that this doesn't allow posting.
11/12/01 - The forums.backcountry.net, a web interface
to the backcountry.net lists is now available for general consumption. Click here for information.
10/10/01 - The gallery.backcountry.net site
has been up and running without a hitch for a number of months. I'm ready to say that it's good
for general consumption now. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have pictures to post or
visit the site
5/28/01 - The friends.backcountry.net
site has been migrated to its own server for disk space concerns.
Note that my offer of free web space for non-commercial outdoors sites is
still available. Forward a username (which will be a part of your
URL), a password and a brief description to
me via email, if you are interested.
4/6/01 - I've added
a Usenet gateway and small news server here at backcountry.net. This will
allow people to read the mailing lists through a number of local newsgroups
at news.backcountry.net. Also, the server is carrying a few popular hiking
related public Usenet groups, like rec.backcountry.
4/4/01 - The archives and search functionality have been fully restored.
3/31/01 - New graphics and layout have been rolled out. Milt
is responsible for the "new look", great job! Look for some new
content from DaRedhead soon as well.
1/2/01 - The archive searching ability is currently off-line,
I'm working on something that will be compatible with Mailman.
1/1/01 - We've successfully migrated from Majordomo to Mailman for our mailing
list software. This gives us all a nice web interface to the
lists and instant archiving. Please note that some of the majordomo
email commands now don't work.
5/20/00 - Had a nice get together of AT-Ler's at Trail Days 2000 in Damascus,
VA. See the picture
