It is being archived. I've found Kevan Heydon's archive of this mailing
list to be quite a valuable resource - especially when I acquire something
that I know has been covered before. The URL for the threaded HTML-ized
version of this archive is

There is also a text archive available from the classiccmp web (or ftp?)
site. Be warned: the individual text files are several megabytes each.

As far as eternity goes, I've copied the flat text archives to a
"classic" computing CD-R for personal use, along with disk images
and ROM dumps for some of the machines in my collection. It's not
good enough for eternity, but I'm hoping for well over 10 years.
