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:

1 – Sign up to the listserv service: https://listserv.uga.edu/cgi-bin/wa?GETPW1
2 – Verify your email
3 – Subscribe to SAS-L  mailing list: https://listserv.uga.edu/cgi-bin/wa?SUBED1=sas-l

There is a ton of information on SAS-L on sasCommunity, and even a dedicated sugi paper.  So get involved – and you could be the next Rookie of the Year!
