arghhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I get tired of this.......I can't even read the responses that I got when I asked this before. But since I subscribe to VIC for my e-mail and server, I need to know who I can use for my newsgroup server that would be supported thru Outlook Express. (yes, I still use Outlook Express, only because it's working fine, it's doing what I want it to do most times and I'm familiar with it) I don't mean to bother ya;ll with this question, but the German based newsgroup service never contacted me and I can't access the information I got about it. So please, if ya'll have a dependable newsreader service out there you're viewing rec.gardens thru in it's entirety, meaning running full posts and threads at least for the last year, let me know by e-mailing me. I even tried X-news and there are some posts missing on THAT one too!! Thanks ya'll madgardener getting drenching rains still.........

MG -- Are you willing to pay or are you only interested in a free service? If the former, the best service available is Giganews. Their packages are reasonable as well. They have a 3 day trial you can run through, see if the service meets your needs, and after that you subscribe on a per-gigabyte rate. The average text user will have no problem at the 1 gig level that runs $7.95 a month. I've been pretty active on the newsgroups over the years and 1 gig was always enough for my text stuff -- it wasn't until I started downloading binaries of old time radio shows that I had to bump up to a higher level. They also have a server that gives you an extra half gig as well.
If you're interested, use the link below so I can get a referral. :-P

Extra Newsguy, as a matter of fact, although I think just plain Newsguy has rec.gardens (yes, it does). Basic Newsguy is $39.95 a year, and Extra Newsguy is $79.95 a year. Well worth it! see http://extra.newsguy.com/overview.htm for more info. I am not financially connected to them (other than the yearly fee), just a satisfied customer!
