About this site was created by Ask Bjørn Hansen.

The site is built with Apache, mod_perl, Combust, colobus and Net::NNTP.

A bit of Perl code is using Net::NNTP to connect to the colobus server which uses the ezmlm archives as the "news spool".

The code is available from Subversion at

  All new code! :-)

  Proper threading and navigation - finally!

  Lots of bugs fixed

  If you go to a too high article number you get redirected to the
  latest articles instead of getting a 404.

  Quoted text now comes in a slight gray greenish color. Different anyway.

  When finding a message by msgid the Next and Previous buttons now
  still works. (requires support of the xpath command in the news
  server; I have a patch for colobus that adds that).

  Email addresses from the headers are being slightly mangled now.
