      I belong to a number of google-groups and they seem to be just as good
      as yahoo-groups and superior in at least a couple of ways.

      Now that yahoo-groups provide a competent search engine and have
      increased storage space per group its doing a pretty good job. The major
      downside of the search is that there is no way (AFAIK) to search
      ie. search for something that could be in any or all of Notetab,
      NTB-clips or NTB-HTML.

      I don't know whether anyone has figured out a reliable way to transfer
      history from Yahoo-groups to Google-groups?

      This google query: "Discussions
      <http://groups.google.com/group/Google-Groups-Guide/topics> > Managing
      Your Group <http://groups.google.com/group/Managing-Your-Group/topics> >
      converting my yahoo group into a google group?" finds one question with
      no answer. Probably there are answers out there but I didn't find them
      in a quick search :-(

      FWIW: I've got all Notetab groups archived in my gmail from February
      11th, 2005 to present and from Dec 2002 thru Feb 2006 saved as EML files
      on hard-disk but off-the-cuff I don't know of a way to get either to
      Google groups.

      Current Memberships:

      * Notetab -2309
      * Clips - 1515
      * HTML - 784
      * NRN - 428
      * NTO - 428
      * Aid4Mail - 264
      * Mailbag - 496
      * EzThumbs - 169
      * EzImager - 209
      * plus a few each in essentially dormant groups FS-Accessibility and
