Today in the newspaper, I read that Rogers is dropping Usenet service.
I am on Rogers.
I have been using the mailing list gateways where I can for months now,
but some newsgroups don't have them. For the few of those that I find
interesting, I now use news2mail:
That doesn't give you posting privileges, but use can use
mail2news for that (finger mail2news-Df8sxST2xYZMuWfdjsoA/w at public.gmane.org).
I hope this helps someone.
Overall, the picture is gloomy; if Micro$oft doesn't kill the Net as we
know it, the big ISPs will.
A true pessimist won't be discouraged by a little success.
