I was going to wait until message 100,000 to do my summary -- I'm quite curious how you got the data. It took me a week to download all the articles slowly enough that Yahoo didn't get upset and block my IP.

Most of the missing articles are in the 1-3000 range, I guess there was a lot of spam back then.

Just a perl script that fetched pages at about 10 second intervals. At first I tried 2 seconds but yahoo banned my ip within a half hour. I then post process to get plain text with resonable formatting. I have 62+ mb of searchable plain text.

I generally dont go to yahoo anymore unless I want to post, I just read the log.

I don't have that info.

Most of the time I fetch the messages within a few minutes/hours of when they are created so I didnt think it usefull to keep that information since it would soon be obsolete.
