This page was first implemented in April, 1996. Since then, a lot of changes have happened on the internet and one of them is the demise of Usenet groups. As far as I can tell the group soc.history.medieval is no longer a group dedicated to medieval studies.
This page has been essentially stagnant since 2002 and I haven't done any substantive updates since then. I'm toying with the idea of resurrecting this resource listing to bring it current to 2006. However, for now I will leave it as is in case anyone still references this page.
