Last updated at 10:19 am UTC on 31 August 2005
Is there an archive for the mailing list?
Yes. There is a nice hierarchical-view archive of the mailing list at
You may search this archive with the google search listed further down.
Archives that go further back in time are at http://squeak.cs.uiuc.edu/mail/squeak/
http://macos.tuwien.ac.at:9009/Server.home is a Squeak mailing list archive which is searchable. For example, if you're looking for information on the ToonTalk children's programming environment as it relates to Squeak, a search on "toontalk" will bring up a few relevant messages. Messages are kept for 400 days.
You may also search the list at the Yahoo Groups squeak list archive. This archive goes back to November 1998. (Because the archive exceeded some disk limit, only articles since Jan 2003 seem to be accessable)(If you use a search engine, you are able to access files before Jan 2003)
Another useful list archive (with no advertising) is the ASPN archive at http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Mail/Archives/squeak/. This archive goes back to October 2000. This archive appears to have nice multi-keyword search capability.
You can also search the list on Gmane, the mailing list-to-news gateway: http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.smalltalk.squeak.general.
Search the Squeak Mailing List Archives using Google

Ned Konz adds: By adding the site:groups.yahoo.com and inurl:squeak you can restrict Google searches to just the list messages. For example:
