I just found out that my internet provider (Comcast) is dropping usenet as part of their services as of Oct. 25. I remember a thread a while back about free news servers, but I couldn't really find what I was looking for in the archives. I tried several but found either dead links or fees.
Can anyone recommend a good, honestly free news server. Text only is fine, ASP is about the only newsgroup I read.
Aioe.org hosts a public USENET (NNTP) server that grants to all IP addresses the right to read the USENET news and to post articles in the newsgroups without providing any kind of authentication. A DICT server that collects almost all free to download DICT dictionaries is also available both through a web interface and through the DICT protocol itself on port 2628. A large archive of almost all LINUX Manual Pages included in Debian GNU/Linux can be consulted through a web search engine that allows the users to perform quite complex searches. The man pages archive can also be downloaded as a single packege for offline use. A simple search engine indexes almost all documentation pages about INND - a news server -, USENET and the most known USENET hierarchies. The Download section - which is also availble through the FTP protocol - makes available several useful scripts and data files collected in the years by the Aioe.org crew. All DICT dictionaries collected by Aioe.org can be downloaded in this section as separate packages (one per dictionary) or as a single archive that includes all dictionaries.
All services are provided for free without requiring any kind of economical obligation in order to be used. Those who are satisfied by these service should make a donation to this project.
Hey thanks Ken. Someone suggested Motzarella to me so I'm trying it out now. If I find I don't like it, I will give Aioe.org a try. Thanks for the info.
