Re: Yahoo Groups

Yahoo has ongoing intermittent issues and has for years.  On top of that, the ability to search the archive for messages is abysmal. 

I see the need to move eventually anyway... might as well get on with it.

Guys/Gals, let me weigh in on this if I may?

My experiences at the moment with Yahoo groups is that I'm not experiencing any problem(s).

Not that I'm a genius with computers...far from it! I'm an appliance operator.

Ex: One evening I was exchanging emails with Steve, W3HF. In the course of this exchange, I was trying to reconcile my XYL's checkbook...

I commented to Steve on what I was doing, and that my Border Collie, Keli Marie, was lying next to me dreaming about fractal geometry! (The infinitely changing circumference of the United States or such.)

Anyway, I have Windows 10, (build unknown) and I originally went to the Yahoo Groups home page, copied the URL and made a desktop icon.

I went there this morning and the desktop icon/link was working just fine. It took me to my Yahoo Groups "home page". Excuse my terminology if incorrect.

Can't we just wait it out, just for a week or two, and see what happens?

I'm not a member of any Google group that I know of, so I cant comment on what to do with that medium.

I am a huge fan of the Google search engine, and most everything I've learned since I graduated from "Harvard on the Bayou"...(Louisiana State University) 1967, I learned on Google! (guys/gals, pls...that’s humor)

It is interesting to note how some guys are wavering back and forth...enuf about that...

I agree. Google groups is bulky and difficult to use as well as confusing when you have more than one group.

No, you REALLY don't want to go to Google groups. If you think Yahoo is bad, Google is worse. I had a group there and quickly moved it to a private server using MailMan.
