Whats a good free Usenet service?
As per the subject

I was rather surprised to see the pay thread. haha. Guess great minds all think alike. haha

Free? Does Deja.com count?
I don't particularly like the way that Deja.com (Google owned now) works but it's the obvious way to hook up to Usenet for "free" not including the cost of internet.

I fondly remember the days of yore when I was in university and we used the text version of Usenet and it was much better I found.

If you have a broadband connection(AT&T roadrunner) you can use the newsgroup through them. The address for my area is news.ne.mediaone.net

Check out page two of the long napster thread in (I think) the Bargains Forum. Startide has posted - and kept updated - a number of informative articles.

get the program "newsfinder"

it will try accessing thousands of free news servers and give you a listing of the ones you can access.. as well as a number of groups in each server.. then start testing some of the better ones..

you wouldnt believe how many of the pay services have free (no password needed) servers that people dont know about
