August 2003: Yahoo! Groups has deleted attachments to messages on all groups, including the Psychtoolbox Forum. We have archived attachments to past messages here. Attachments are indexed by message number and compressed in .zip format. Attachments to forum messages posted after August will be distributed to forum email subscribers but will not be archived on the web portal.
September 2003: We would consider transplanting the Psychtoolbox Forum from Yahoo Groups to another service and would be glad to receive comment or recommendation on any of the many alternatives to Yahoo Groups. Desirable features are: Simple web-based administration, web and email portals, online archiving of messages with no expiration, moderation and no advertising.
The Psychophysics Toolbox discussion forum is a place for Psychtoolbox users to ask questions, share software, and offer advice concerning the use and development of the Psychtoolbox. Messages posted to the forum never expire, so you can search it for advice on your issue. The forum is moderated by Allen Ingling. Yahoo hosts the forum free-of-charge, with advertising.
Access the forum by these methods:
Messages read from the web exclude attachments.
Send it to email@example.com.
Send an empty message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Past messages, posted before you subscribed, can only be accessed through the web.
Messages received via email include attachments.
Send an empty message to email@example.com.
Attachments posted prior to August 2003 are indexed by forum message number.
As of 19 September 2000, we were building a library of user-supplied programs that run real experiments, as examples for others. We invited everyone to send software to the Psychtoolbox forum. In August of 2003 Yahoo Groups stopped archiving attachments online. Though we preserved attachments posted prior to August 2003 we have no automatic means of archiving attachments to messages posted after August. Users are still encouraged to submit examples to the forum as attachments. Email subscribers will receive attachments though attachments are no longer archived automatically on the web. When submitting a denotation to the forum please include the keyword"DONATE" in the title so that contributions can be easily discovered with search. Though attachments are no longer automatically archived we are glad to archive attachments by request.
For questions concerning forum content, contact the moderator, Allen Ingling.
