|SPRACI does not archive usenet newsgroups.
What you see when you look at a newsgroup on spraci is just what is currently available for that newsgroup from the usenet server we connect to.
Posts are only cached temporarely here and hence are not normally searchable with "spraci search'.
We can't index them for the search because the links would be broken as soon as the posts expire from the server.
If you are looking for a message that has already expired from the usenet server try Google Groups - There is a good chance you will be able to find it there - they have a massive archive of usenet.
