Re: news groups

Something that isn't made clear in that other thread is that while Eternal September is a free news server, you still have to sign up on their web site http://www.eternal-september.org/ to gain access.

 

Unlike the paid-for servers, their coverage of 'binaries' newsgroups is very limited.
