This appl' installs and launches quickly, the interface looks fine.

The problem (for me) is that my I S P (Time Warner - Road Runner) does NOT provide the feed for Usenet newsgroups.

I really wish that I could access usenet. Any ideas ? Anyone ? Anyone ?

Google is your friend.... or pay for giganews...


A lot of the ISP's no longer have USENET newsreaders.If you have one you are lucky.RoadRunner has a free service which I don't use.For the most part because Usenet is no longer a popular feature I use Giganews which give me good service and their retention is good. But they cost $.


Individual.net is solid. Costs 10 Euro a year and is only text. IMNSHO well worth it.



A free usenet server

When I try to open the file "Xnntp-Alpha-for-10.4.11+.pkg.zip" my system (intel/10.4.11) responds with: This package type requires Mac OS X 10.5.
