Many thanks for the info Guiser. It sounds slightly complicated but I expect it's more straightforwardonce one's signed up.


Yes, it is, as you say, pretty straightforward after you sign up. You can then get into the 2001 to present archive with a password straight from the main sign up page. However, I have also belatedly realised that the old archives are accessible through the sign up page if you click through on FAQ. Only the first archive "click-through" works though. I think the other one once had a search engine, so it is a shame that it is gone. The FAQ is probably the source of one of the URL's cited on fanlore.

As far as the older archives are concerned, I wasn't keen on the idea of downloading random freebie software that might or might not be able to access the gz files. It might be worth contacting the list owner for advice on accessing these files, but I never got round to doing so.

Thanks v. much for the heads up on this. There's some interesting stuff buried in there.

The .gz files are just another kind of compressed archive, like zip files.

I can recommend the free program, 7-zip, as a reliable program for getting into gz and other compressed files. Not only is it very good, but it has a "7" in the name - how's that for a sign of quality?!?

You can download the program from their website: http://www.7-zip.org/.

Once you run the EXE file and the software is installed, launch 7-zip, then go into the "Tools" menu and select "Options". The first tab you see ("System") shows all the compression formats you can associate with the program. If you tick "gz" and "gunzip" in the list and click Apply and OK, then your computer will know that any time you click on a file with a .gz extension it can run 7-zip to open it.

You can close 7-zip, then go to the Lysator archive. Click on one of the "gz" files and 7-zip will open up showing the contents on the right (usually just a document called "1"). You can click on this to open it for reading, but as it has no file extension Windows doesn't know what it's meant to be. It will ask you what program to use. Wordpad works okay but don't use Notepad as it does not show any line breaks, instead presenting it as one massive block of text.

Thanks for the tip, Joe Dredd. I particularly appreciate the detailed instructions, because I really am clueless and tend to break out in a cold sweat every time I have to do something like that! I can't report back on success or failure yet, because I'm going to wait until I'm in a particularly sunny mood to try it!

Hi Guiser,
No need to fret about the .gz files, having saved & unpacked them many moon ago, they are made into microsoft format .txt files & you can access them here, starting with the VERY FIRST post !!
(links removed - PM if you wish access)

Enjoy! And beware. There is a lot of good, & some quite nasty fighting, in them there archives. (Humans are involved, so......)

Thanks! I'll let you know if I find any dodgy files. I'm sure I'll be ok with the archives, because any delicate sensibilities I ever possessed have been lost due to lurking about on Dr Who forums! Grin
