that is about it... piracy on newsgroups is what has lead to most isp's in india and abroad doing away with them or just plain restricting them to normal text groups..

If anyone is interested in a free news server for text newsgroups, let me know.

yesshh me interested in text newsgroug

even google has its newsgroup na ????[/b]

Yes, Google has made most text newsgroups available at http://groups.google.com . But if you want to save messages etc. you will want to use a newsreader program such as Outlook Express, Thunderbird, XNews etc.

Here is one site that offers a free newsgroup server : http://dotsrc.org/usenet

To register just send an empty email to: [email protected] and they will email you a username (which is your email) and a password.

Setup instructions for different newsreaders (Outlook Express, Thunderbird etc.) can be found here : http://dotsrc.org/usenet/clientconfig
