A note to other contributors: references to this newsgroup are marked up as live links by Wiki if they appear in the form news:comp.lang.tcl (RS)See also The comp.lang.tcl newsgroup , How to read answers posted on the comp.lang.tcl newsgroup, Effective ways to request help with Tcl-related problems.Note that there is a second usenet newsgroup titled news:comp.lang.tcl.announce , which has a web forum interface at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/tcl_announce . This is a moderated group specializing in new Tcl related release announcments by anyone. Announcements can concern conferences, workshops, software, books, articles, etc. However, the moderator has been unavailable for quite some time, and now yahoo has even removed the archives. So someone interested in becoming the moderator should probably contact the Usenet Cabal to determine how best to proceed.

LV I'm relatively certain that the Macintosh tcl newsgroup references are not to our own Tcl Command Language Tcl, but instead to a C/C++ product that was (is?) available on the Mac platform.
D. McC 4 March 2004 - What's happened to comp.lang.tcl? I haven't seen any new messages for about 48 hours (using KNode on Mandrake Linux 9.2). Is anyone else having the same problem?AM No problem here - well, at least not that kind of a problem ;)
Kroc 02 Sept 2005 - I tried 3 news servers with thunderbird, http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.tcl.announce and http://groups.yahoo.com/group/tcl_announce/ and I saw comp.lang.tcl.announce hasn't received any new post since 31 May 2005 while I expected at least Dr. Dobb's Tcl-URL! - weekly Tcl news and links! Anyone could confirm if this newsgroup is still active or not?LV I have been unsuccessful in contacting the moderator of comp.lang.tcl.announce. He has, on a regular basis, had periods of non-posting for long periods of time. So I don't know if this is a busy period for him, or if something more serious has occurred.LV 2006 Feb 09 - I continue to be unsuccessful in a) contacting the moderator and b) getting yahoogroups to respond to my queries about opening the tcl_announce group up to a new moderator. Anyone know the steps on usenet to declare a new moderator? And anyone know someone willing to act as moderator?
LV 2007 Jan 11 - this morning when I visit the google groups comp.lang.tcl group, I see no postings past Jan 9th. I don't recall whether I saw anything newer yesterday.However, just wanted to give others a heads up that something might be wrong.Same here, no updates on http://groups.google.co.uk/group/comp.lang.tcl since Jan 9. Other google usenet groups I checked seem to be getting updates, and when I checked another news server from home last night it had more recent comp.lang.tcl postings - can't access that from work though Colin Macleod.AM (11 january 2007) There was a maintenance update the other day, but since then I have not seen any updates of the postings. (Maintenance update to what?)(11 january 2007) FWIW, the news server news.chi.sbcglobal.net has no postings since around noon central time on January 10, 2007. This, for nearly all newsgroups except sbcglobal.* (based on very limited spot checking). Very odd.EMJ It is annoying if your only accessible view of a newsgroup is not up-to-date, but since message propagation is inherently decentralized and asynchronous, pure randomness may be enough to explain it. And if not, local policies or problems (server or "nearby" network components) are the most likely cause. Google often seems to ignore groups for extended periods, quite possibly something to do with the way incoming messages are integrated into the Google archive.LV The google site appears to continue to have problems with a subset of groups for the third straight day. I'm unable to locate a free nntp server. Given that I suspect google has become the primary method of accessing comp.lang.tcl, unless something happens shortly, we may have lost that newsgroup as well.LV Jan 12, 2007 - apparently someone at google groups noticed our problem with comp.lang.tcl (I know I emailed them several times about it). I am this sfternoon seeing articles appear on the newsgroup. Now if we could do something about comp.lang.tcl.announce :-( ...
