Re: Why not a news server?
I will say my 2c once again, I am rather glad to have this setup because I
believe it will allow for a lot more than simply an e-mail group. Often
times I am thinking about something about a month or two after it has been
discussed, and frankly an nntp server group is easier to search than some
mailing list archives. One reason is that a person can use which ever front
end reader they prefer, including most of the ones that are part of Un*x to
read e-mail. I had been using pine for the group, now I have OE 6.0 which is
the one I would rather have.
As far as the info to have on the cygwin website, how about the stuff that I
had attached in my message, telling people how to get to the newsgroup,
