Re: History of Seaint List

This is an interesting link.  Thanks for sharing.  You voted yes.  So did Ray Pixley and many others. 
The List became SEAINT just after its third birthday, on  July 12, 1998.

Was not it renamed to SEAINT listserver later?
Back in early 1995, a bunch of naysayers voted NO to creation of 'sci.engr.civil.structural' newsgroup

That jogged my memory. Someone posted an announcement on the old CIVIL-L listserv back in '95 advertising what was then called the SEAOSC list, I believe. Back in those days Usenet and listservs were the big deal (that WWW thing was just starting to take off).

CIVIL-L was run from the U. of New Brunswick as I recall.

Yes, I am guilty of a typo.  I meant to write July 1995.  To be more precise, July 6, 1995.
Sorry about that!

Unless I am mistaken, the list got started in July 2005.  It was established by the Computer Applications Committee of SEAOSC.
The archives go back to 1995.
