Deja didn't have the older archives available for a while now. Every time I
emailed their support service I got an automated reply back saying that it
was temporarily unavailable - I suppose that if this takeover was looming
then that explains a lot.

Oh, I don't know about them having the last 6 months up at the moment by the
way - yesterday afternoon they didn't have some of my posts and follow-ups
from less than a week ago.

Hopefully there'll be a way of grabbing group archives to local storage -
that'll be handy. I hope they put some serious work into the UI too and
actually make it look like a piece of newsreader software rather than a bad
web front-end (as dejanews was and as the site is currently)
