RIS provides data in a searchable MySQL database for three months.

All we've ever collected is kept in a raw data format. This archive 
starts in 1999, and we maintain a library to read the data.
This data is free to use for any purpose and we will not remove any of 
our raw data as it gets older.

We are also carefully looking into whether we should reduce or increase 
the amount of data in our MySQL database - as that's easy to search for 
our users.

However, any increase obviously comes with increased resource usage - so 
this is something that requires careful thinking and planning.
Another option is to store aggregated info on older data, instead of 
keeping every update that ever occured.

But, this is just an idea that crosses our minds from time to time - I'm 
not making promises on what we will implement :)

Of course, any ideas on how much more history would help you, are very
