A bit ago some remarked that Deja News (, the newsgroup repository, only went back 6 months. Here's a newsflash:

"MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - February 12, 2001 - Google Inc. today announced that it has acquired's Usenet Discussion Service. This acquisition provides Google with Deja's entire Usenet archive (dating back to 1995), software, domain names including and, company trademarks, and other intellectual property. Financial terms of this transaction were not released.

Available now at, this powerful new Usenet search feature enables Google users to access the wealth of information contained in more than six months of Usenet newsgroup postings and message threads. Once the full Deja Usenet archive is added, users will be able to search and browse more than 500 million archived messages with the speed and efficiency of a Google search. In addition to expanding the amount of searchable data, Google will soon provide improved browsing capabilities and newsgroup posting."
