- Deja.com has been bought by Google! (am I spreading old news?)
...and it's now pants. I used to use it to reply to Usenet messages etc. but
you can only search now - not post.
Anyway....while having a peek I found the following:
(you'll have to do two lines at a time - biiiiggg url)
The posts were from August last year and were basically saying that Wide
Angle wasn't up to much (!) and that Hybrid have disapeared up their own
Quite a few of us have met Hybrid - have you ever known them to be rude to
you? I haven't heard anything and they were certainly more than lovely to
I know it's 6 months later, but I still wanted to reply to the post....but I

Does anyone know how to get Usenet without going through your ISP?
- There's a list of free usenet news servers out there somewhere on the
net. They're normally pretty busy and you're going way outside of your
home ISP's network so the latency's a drag and whatnot.
Forte Agent is the best newsreader I know of (Win32)

months and I've never had any problems (yet...).
As far as newsreaders go, I'd recommend using Hamster to
download news (http://home.knuut.de/tgl/own/hamtools.htm -- don't

(http://xnews.3dnews.net). It takes a wee bit of work to get it all up
and running but it's worth it :)
