• Is comp.lang.verilog dead? Is there an archive?

    From EML@21:1/5 to All on Sat Apr 6 01:46:00 2019
    See subject. The last post I can see here is dated 25th Feb, and lots of the previous ones are pointless replies to 10-year-old threads.

    I can't find an Advanced Search any more, which seems to have come and gone over the years.

    And, most importantly, is there an archive anywhere? Pretty much any Verilog or VHDL question has been answered dozens of times on usenet over the past 30 years, but Google seems to have done its best to delete everything.

    Google groups. Doesn't seem to be much point using a newsreader for this.

    Not sure what you are talking about. I was able to go back to 2009 and would have gone further but the traffic was pretty heavy then. How are you getting only back to Feb 25? I clicked the cursor in the list area then hit the END key a few dozen times.

    I can wheel down the page to 2009 in a couple of minutes. Still not much activity, though - 25 posts in April 09, for example, which is way below what it was a few years before that.

    It's no use, though, without a proper advanced group search, which I haven't seen for years now. Free Agent did a good search, but of course you needed the messages locally, and an NNTP server which actually carried all the old messages.

    You could cut to the chase and just ask your question again...

    I know there are other web sites that do the same job as GG. I can't think of any names though.
