Hello List,

I apologize if this isn't the right place to post that kind of request 
or off-topic... I was thinking that the DNS gurus among you might be 
able to help ;-)

Basically I am researching early Internet usage and I would be 
interested in (very) old zone files (or plain domain lists) from around 
between 1985 and 1990, that is the pre-WWW days. I'm interested in both 
gTLDs and ccTLDs.
Tough, I know.
Any idea ?

Also, another side question. Is there an archive of the hosts.txt file ?
I found this:

This too: http://osdir.com/ml/culture.internet.history/2007-12/msg00001.html

But no central repository ?
