Gateway Restored

Welcome back friends from the other side!

We believe we have a working gateway between mailing list and
newsgroup once again. Please let me know if you notice any missing
messages.

We need to thank:

  • Dave T. who wrote the original code in 2001 that I only needed
    to update a little to relaunch.
  • Dennis Oelkers who was keeper of the gateway for so long and taught
    us enough to take up the torch.
  • Fred Senault who donated the newsgroup account we are using to
    manage the comp.lang.ruby side of things.
  • HighGroove Studos who is now hosting the gateway script.
    HighGroove employee Charles Brian Q. was essential in getting this
    running again.

Without all of the above, there would be no gateway. My thanks to
you all!

I’m sorry I just have to piont how when I originally suggested that the
gateway be fixed, first I was ignored. Then when I insisted, I was
ridiculed by posters saying essentially “we don’t need no stinking
gateway”, “let the two forums have their own independent life”, and “we
don’t want those nuby posts on the mailing list”, etc. I worked to get
something up, but ran in to too much resistance and eventually let it
go. Now it’s back up and everybody’s singing praises. Mahatma Gandhi
was right!

Too Funny!

Good work James.

As far as I remember, this sentiment only ever came up with regards to
that other gateway. I can’t imagine any from the mailing-list side
of the gateway feeling that way about the denizens of c.l.r. :slight_smile:

Many many many thanks! It’s so good to be back. And next time the
gateway goes down (may it be a long time) let’s all remember to at least
consult the comp.lang.ruby citizens before (or after) deciding it’s not
worth fixing. Thanks again James!

Awsome!
Thanks a bunch!

I’m harder to deter. I wanted the gateway back, so I put it back.
It existed for years, it’s part of the mailing list agreement, etc.,
so I figured at least someone out there agreed with me. :wink:
