I've noticed that before when looking for a particular message, then did another search with a changed subject, or a different set of keywords, and it popped up.
Google is not even the ghost of the old DejaNews, no matter how hard they try to make you believe it ... they are part and parcel of the "johnny-come-lately "corporate" internet.
.... it was really fun while it lasted.

So what are you guys using? I have DSL, and I really like it EXCEPT for the newsgroup access. I am supposed to have an easy portal to NGs, but two chinese mathmeticians couldn't figure out how to set it up.
I started with AOL years and years ago, and NG access was easy. Then they took it out of the service package since overall, usage was so small compared to their subscribers. (Remember when AOL actually WAS a giant?)
Went to deja and loved it. Then started using Google groups a couple of years ago. It has been mostly good, but not great. Recent changes have made it better, but I have learned to copy my post to the clipboard before posting as sometimes it doesn't post at all. I am just in the habit of using Google now as I can access the NGs from any internet capable computer any where I might be.
I was thinking of teranews, as they have a free reader and posting, but don't know that much about it. A couple of guys on the turning ng have it and seem to like it a lot.
Any thoughts?

Teranews free ($ 3.95 sign up fee last time I looked), at present I have a Giganews account (11.95 for up to 11 gig per month), the ISP account and Forte account (pricing below). All three feed to Agent at the same time, Forte had (do not know whether it still is in effect) a deal with 3 months free news server access with a purchase of Agent, $2.95 per month after that for up to 7 gig per month.
Giganews account carries 100k+ groups, the other two about 35k+. But I am a geek though.
I did lacquer that laptop tray, but I bought spray cans. Came out really nice though, super smooth. Have not yet posted the pictures.

I can't imagine how much bandwidth I would be using with another source, but it couldn't be much. All I do is a couple of NGs, and no binaries.
Seems photobucket, yahoo pictures, etc. are a lot more reliable. Thanks for the info.

Hey... nothing wrong with spray cans! I use them for small projects and for touch ups as needed.
Pictures! We need pictures! ;^)

I use earthlink.net for an ISP and Thunderbird for e-mail.
N/G access is part of the package.

Are you surprised? Google groups is a very limited portal into the richness of Usenet.
