Volume 4 Available
Volume 4 of the IUDA is now available and represents the messages contained on the Irbit MotorWorks of America, Inc.'s WebBoard starting Janurary 1, 2005.

Volume 3 of the IUDA is no longer taking in new messages from Irbit MotorWorks of America's WebBoard.

The last and first few messages of Volumes 3 and 4 do not link across volumes.

Makeover and Spam Reduction
I have done a makeover on the IUDA. I have approximated the look of the Irbit MotorWorks of America's WebBoard.

I have also taken steps to reduce the amount of potential Spam people might get by having messages stored in the IUDA. Where possible I have used routines that will require people to use a web email form to send email. If an email is included in a message, I can't mask those email addresses.

Volume 2 No Longer Taking In New Messages
Volume 2 of the IUDA is no longer taking in new messages. Ural America's WebBoard is still available on the web and if it adds new messages, I'll endeavor to add them to Volume 2.

Non Functional Email Addresses
Lots of people are signing up with email addresses that don't work. People who attempt to access the IUDA with email addresses that don't work, will have their membership blocked.

I put a lot of effort into maintaining the IUDA and I don't need the extra hassle that non functional email addresses present. Please be curtious and use valid email addresses. You will receive virtually no email communications relating to the IUDA.

IUDA Membership and Donations
I am making the following changes to the IUDA.


The IUDA now requires that you be a member of the IUDA to access its discussion group messages.

If you have posted a message to either "Irbit MotorWorks of America" or URAL America webboards, then a membership has been created for you using the email address with which you posted.

To login, use the Members Login link to the left of the webpage. Follow the directions on the login webpage to login or retrieve your password. If this is your first time to login, then you will need to follow the password retrieval instructions. You can change the password from the Preferences webpage after you have logged in.

If you have not posted to the above webboards and would like to become a member, use the Join Now link to the left of the webpage.

After you have logged in for the first time, you will have 30 days to see all the information the IUDA has to offer. If you want to continue to use the IUDA after the initial 30 day period, make a donation to the IUDA to activate your membership for 1 year. Use the MAKE DONATION link to the left of this webpage.

If you have recently donated to the IUDA then your membership will be active for one year from your last donation.

After you make a donation, it may take up to several days for your membership to be updated.


The IUDA was free of charge since it's inception in 1998. I asked for donations starting mid 2001 and some generous folks have helped out. Thank you!

I'm hoping to stimulate more donations so that I can cover the cost of the resources the IUDA consumes.

I know you will find the IUDA a useful resource!


Anyone can use the Search page to look for information in the IUDA. You will have to be an active member to see the full message in the IUDA discussion groups.

If you have any problems or questions, please contact Thomas A. Creedon

IUDA Switches to Google for Search engine
The IMZ-Ural Discussion Archive has switched to using Google for searching the IUDA.

The previous search engine was overwhelmed by the amount of information indexed. One downside to not using the old search engine is that a word index can no longer be provided.
