There is a lot of talk going around about various ISPs dropping the
alt series of newsgroups.

Should we give some thought to moving the newsgroup to one of the

Big
8 sections before we have to? This would give people who drop in
every so often a chance to figure out what's going on.

Barry


The Big 8 are

comp.
Humanities.
misc.
news.
rec.
sci.
soc.
talk.





Are you volunteering? If not, perhaps the simplest solution would be

to
mirror this group to a Google group. I think you can set one up to be
public access (no sign-up required), although I haven't actually

checked
into that.


Considering what's going on, maybe Google Groups is the bestway to go.
I was tryhing to figure a way to stay within usenet, but it appears what
usenet is on the way out.

I'll take a look at GG and see what's involved.

Barry


Google is a pain to use and since much of the spam that shows up comes
through Google many people have Google blocked.

Since there are enough providers who will carry alt groups for free or
cheap, lets stay here for a while longer. Maybe try to get a
rec.food.bread group going or steal rec.food.baking.

The big ISP's may not carry Usenet anymore I doubt that Usenet will
disappear anytime soon.

They don't need to take it over. They just need to join and participate
and merge.

I've subscribed to both for ages.
Since r.f.baking has been pretty dead of late, maybe it will infuse new
life here...

Sounds reasonable to me.

I'm mostly a lurker of both groups, but
I think that is more in line with what they meant. To just relocate
over here
and participate.
