Unfortunately, this happened a while ago.  We've been losing the early
end of the Yahoo archives constantly every since.  This really doesn't
matter anymore - everything since 1998-09-14 is stored in the Brown
archives here:

What's irritating is that the Yahoo archives used to go back to a
couple of years before that, and we lost these because Yahoo
apparently didn't think of posting a message to the list when they
instituted this policy.

If you want to see archives from 1994-06 to 1998-09, you'll have to
ask around and see if someone can mail their personal archives to you.
(Somewhat abridged) archives from 1991-07-25 to 1994-06 are available
here: .  (Prior to this,
conlang hardly existed, and I doubt any archives from that period (of
about a month, apparently) exist anywhere.)
