Now, can somebody there make sure that the people at Google are aware of
this change? Ever since the groups went down about a year ago, google
stopped collecting the messages. Then at some point, the database
newsgroups were more or less tuned back on by google, but the powersoft
groups were left in the state they are in today. This would make things
really easy when it comes to searching for certain issues if google can
start collecting them again.
