news server


Hey All,
My ISP is discontinuing usenet next week. :( I know a lot of you block
google groups. I will probably read from there for a while. Our ISP
was "kind" enough to tell us we could get half off on giganews for a month.
So $15 for the first month $30 thereafter. Well, it torques me to have to
pay, especially that much, for something that has always been part of my
internet cost. grrrrrrr
I will investigate other things. It gets a little tricky sometimes because
we don't use windows. I will put DH on the hunt too.
If you don't "see" me for a while, that's what is going on. PITA....

Newsguy.com. platform independent, $60/yr, iirc. (more if you want more than just reading newsgroups.)
We've been using it forever (since before it was Newsguy).

Ours did the same thing last year, and there was way to continue it, even at a cost. It was gone on the date specified.
DS signed me up for gmail on all my sewing groups and so far, so good.
I use it on both the H-P Windows laptop and on the Apple desktop.

I usually just lurk here, but I highly recommend eternal september -

Lots of folks on the arthritis newsgroup use it now.

freenews . netfront . net Is free ; has some binary groups ; but adds a little tagline to your posts. I've used it since last year when my ISP dropped usenet. If you are not interested in binary groups - there are probably a few other free servers that are better. Good luck. John T.

I'm replying to my own note because I didn't ask him what server he used to get the gmail up and running. I should not have posted in haste, I really did not have all the correct information. Sorry! Emily
