Default Thanks everyone

Att is killing all newsgroups. This is the only thing they had left to
offer, so time to say goodbye. My building is probably switching cable
companies (my hope for alternate provider), so for now I'm up in the air.

In any event, just wanted to make sure I thanked everybody for answering my
questions over the years. Hope to make it back, but in any event, thanks
much for your much appreciated help

Don't give up. See the thread with the subject line "AT&T Usenet ...etc.".
I'm in the same boat. Find another way in. I will, as soon as I have 3
minutes to do so. If you lose track, go to Kye's server: 121.208.41.

Thanks all. Didn't notice all the posts under the att post. Assumed they
were only reposts of the same notice. I hope to find my way back, and in
any event hope to use it as a impetus to dump ATT and find my way into the
21'st century (still on dial up!). Take care.

sorry, the only machine i have regular access to is the one at work,
and i suspect they'd have several things to say if i installed a
newsreader on it.

one of these days i'll get my own machine...and a digital camera.

One thing I discovered years ago is that most companies allow their
employees to do entirely too much on the internet from work.
The other thing I discovered is almost every business with windows
computers that can surf the web have not locked down users from
downloading the putty ssh client and running that.

Combine that with a shell account... and you end up doing what I've
been doing for the past 19 years.

Anyways...

Putty
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~s.../download.html
For most of the population all you need is putty.exe or plink.exe.
If you want to get fancy, grab pscp, psftp, pageant, and puttygen

Free Unix shell accounts.
http://www.red-pill.eu/freeunix.shtml


If you're feeling masochistic, see if you can successfully do
'telnet news.eternal-september.org 119'
from a cmd.exe window
And if that works (You'll see something like
200 news.eternal-september.org InterNetNews NNRP server INN 2.5.0 ready (posting ok)
)
type
'group motzarella.support'
'article 1'
'next'
'article'
.....
'quit'


(Remove the single quotes. Hit return after each thing in single quotes)
Just keep track of article numbers on a sheet of paper and read through
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3977

and you can have an extremely low tech newsreader.

one of these days i'll get my own machine...and a digital camera.


Ah, but it's very important to have access to someone else's machine
preferably a someone else's machine sitting in another country.

of course it is always possible to find a web enabled connection to
usenet, like this one at google groups.

time ago... heelo everyone!
