This is not one of my core Usenet forums, so I haven't picked up on this post for a week. I don't think the conversations have gone anywhere. Some tech queries might be put out to Oracle groups like 'Ask Tom' or 'Stack Overflow' etc.
I think Usenet has been harmed by Google a bit because Google Reader doesn't handle threads like a real news reader.
Next time I post a question/answer I will make a reference to helpful information I got from Usenet (YOU!). Perhaps this will alert some people to Usenet. Perhaps you might try this too? Received on Tue May 15 2012 - 19:26:45 CDT
