Adios Newsgroups (for now)

Postby LANjackal » Sun Sep 27, 2009 3:40 pm

Due to a recent move, I've been forced to switch from Cox (Newsgroups Paradise) to Comcast (the desert, no Usenet service whatsoever). I've never been inclined to pay for the service, haven't downloaded anything useful from Usenet since the start of the year (not kidding), and free Windows clients suck (Alt.Binz's free version doesn't play well with UAC) so it's safe to say I won't be using it for the foreseeable future.

:( RIP

I don't understand. What about using a free server and a different reader?
