Time warp to 2005!

I tried going back to one of my favorite MeFi posts. It was based around a usenet discussion (or collection of usenet discussions) made in real time about the new Star Wars film "Return of the Jedi" in 1983. Sadly, the main link is now dead. Anyone know where this stuff can be found now? It survived from 1983 until 2005, so hopefully it's still available somewhere.

news filter?

how hard would it be to serve up metafilter like a newgroup? any chance of that happening? I could read it with slrn. I joked about it in a thread, but now that I think about it, it would be nice to have.

Top 100 SF/Fantasy List

There was an AskMe thread that revolved around some scifi question, and a person posted in response a link to a top 100 list, which I think was a usenet post. It was voted on by users. I always meant to link the list, never did, and now I've spent 30 minutes trying to find it. Any idea?
