Well if they ever show up, I'd be interested :-).
That archive was largely incomplete: it had the message titles but very
few of the actual messages. There were some rather harsh negative
comments on an FB group when someone pointed to it. Obviously some
people thought that when they were writing their original comments that
they would be kept private to the 100,000+ Digital employees :-)
Anyway, if bitsavers ever wants to set up an archive of Notes
conferences, then I'll go and dig out the ones I was hosting back in the
day. There might be a few from the old MARVIN cluster too but nothing as
interesting as the VAX or semiconductor conferences.
FWIW I think the person who originally saved those details might have
been Paul S. Winalski, but that might be my memory playing tricks on me.
