Seems we found two separate forums, atari-midi-archive and atari-midi-discussions. The latter being connected to your domain: http://tamw.exxoshost.co.uk/ . Remember anything about that?

Oh that wouldn't be good to recover stuff..
Probably if you are logged in you see them. But I have no Yahoo Account, and I am quite hesitant to create one only for this ;)

Have been looking for yahoo mass downloaders, but they all seem to be abandoned and broken since the last major UI change at yahoo. But if there is a page with a filelist these could be downloaded with wget quite easily.

wget could maybe still do that, but I have no idea how to handle the login... Maybe someone a little more proficient in this can help?

Is that just the Atari groups or a site wide thing?
I did not know Yahoo Groups were even still being used enough these days :shock:
The links says the groups will still stay but become private odd decision that.

Yahoo has made the decision to no longer allow users to upload content to the Yahoo Groups site. Beginning October 21, you won't be able to upload any more content to the site, and as of December 14 all previously posted content on the site will be permanently removed. You'll have until that date to save anything you've uploaded.
