Yes, it's true, we're changing our newsgroup software yet again! Our first newsgroup software company went out of business. Our second newsgroup software was confusing to some people and it also barraged
the reader with a whole bunch of annoying pop-up windows featuring advertisements for who-knows-what. And because of its heavily commercial nature, a lot of people didn't want to post because they didn't want to register with the company. Although it
WAS possible to post without registering, it wasn't a straightforward process. In order to address these problems I'm going to try one more time with this nice simple software that is being provided to me free through my
Internet Service Provider. The downside is that this software won't allow you to post photos. However, you can still use html to link to other pages and images on other sites. My apologies and thanks to those readers who have been with us through
all these changes.
