Yeah, Jorn had a lot of info stored up (I think it was a compiled schedule of when online magazines and news sources would update with new articles) on eGroups under the weblogs discussion list which got lost when eGroups decided to muck things up. He was not happy, to say the least.

Yep. I used that thing practically every day. Now have to resort to the inferior startpage template. At least his own daily calendar is still intact.

I used their service to archive one of my lists. Now it tells me and all the other subscribers 'I'm not subscribed'. I cannot alter the settings, I no longer have access to the archives. They're not answering my cry help. Arseholes.
