WAISworld Website: New Search Feature; Thousands of Old Posts (John Eipper, USA, 07/05/11 8:34 am)

Something new and something old to report to WAISdom.  Yesterday our IT guru, Roman Zhovtulya, and I had an Independence-Day chat via Skype. Roman is doing well, and is preparing to leave California this week for the Ukraine, where he will be spending the next several months. He is planning to join us at the Torquay conference (29-31 July) as well.

Here are the updates:

1) Roman will set up a live broadcast of some of the WAIS/Torquay presentations and roundtables. WAISers around the world will be able to watch the festivities in real-time via the Internet, and will be able to e-mail and live-voice in their questions. California WAISers--get ready to arise very, very early on Saturday, July 30th!

2) A new search feature on our homepage now allows readers to find postings by individual author. The search engine can be accessed at the link below, or by clicking on "Forums" and then "Search" (left-hand column) on our homepage.


3) Roman and his team have finished transferring all the old and "lost" WAIS postings to our website, spanning the period from 1997 through c. 2003.  This was a labor-intensive task, as each posting had to be loaded manually. To my knowledge, the following Ronald Hilton post, dated 18 September 1997, is the modern-day WAIS urtext.  Note Prof. H's use of "grotesque nadir"--if only I had his grasp of language!


Wow--that's 14 years of one on-line Forum...an eternity for the Information Age.  It is possible that "new" old postings will eventually surface, thus extending our history back another half-decade or so.

Thank you for your help, Roman!  I propose that we promote you to WAIS Information Technology Czar.  It won't come with any pecuniary reward, but who hasn't ever wanted to be a czar?

Pax et lux.
