If you’ve ever done any moderate googling on a SAS topic you’ve probably unearthed a thread on SAS-L, quite possibly from several decades ago. You’d be forgiven for assuming that this simply something that “used to exist’ because - up until recently - that’s exactly what I thought too.
Well - how wrong I was. SAS-L is still alive and kicking. The “L” stands for listserv, and is a mail server run by the University of Georgia. It’s basically a spamming service for SAS issues (am sure there is a better word for it though).
Getting started is as easy as 1,2,3:
- Sign up to the listserv service: https://listserv.uga.edu/scripts/wa-UGA.exe?A0=SAS-L
- Verify your email
- Subscribe to SAS-L mailing list: https://listserv.uga.edu/scripts/wa-UGA.exe?SUBED1=SAS-L
