MT-NewsWatcher is best and free News Group reader there is for the Mac.
They do ask for a $25 donation. It is easily worth it. It is up to you.
The link: http://www.smfr.org/mtnw
Their are other readers out their for the Mac - just not worth it.
MT-NewsWather is far better than anything MS offers.
Enjoy Life ....... Dan

It was a joke man.
Actually, I'm stuck with some Microsoft products until the last kid is out
of HS. There are at least three teachers a year that require all papers to
be also turned in as a Word file on a CD. No other format is allowed.
Actually, I keep wondering how Entourage got to be so useable.
Write a stern E-mail to the school board. Include such phrases as
"economics"; "forced purchases" [Word and CDs]; "discrimination";
"PDF"[free, universal, and uncopyable]; "resource waste", and so forth.
Also note that it's a waste of time, energy and resources (burning a CD)
for a tiny bit of info that could be easily e-mailed if the "teacher"
had a brain and a will to stop such waste and rigidity. I bet they have
to turn in a printed copy, too, no?

Of course they do - waste paper and don't get the CD back half the time.
(which is why there is a stack on write onlys and a stack of read-writes)
Honestly, I'm just way too tired right now to deal with that fight. But, I'm
wondering about sending the younger one to a private HS.
I actually understand some of the .doc only format; it allows the teacher to
run a program that checks for plagiarism with a web search (oh the sites out
there for essays on just about any subject, book, etc and desired grade you
want to get.)
I'd love to be a fly on the wall if/when a freeware guru runs in to those
But that would be the teacher would have some extra work, heaven's forbid.
(yes, I am not happy with the state of "English" instruction locally.)

Vista. I say Vista Shmista. I have a gig of RAM and this Vista
really needs two gigs to run properly. I find it a bit slow. I was
using XP Pro (husband works at Dell) and I have a new 9400 Inspiron to
replace the lemon 9300 I returned after two years. Please, anyone
buying a Dell, buy the three year complete care package.
I keep swearing I will convert to REd Hat or some such every year, but they are
to have to pry my cold dead fingers off my win2000, I wont consider using
or Vista. My DH is using my itty laptop because his XP wont run on his brand
high powered computer he needs to teach robotics ..... thanks to Bill Gates
registration spyware program. Ingrid
There are other solutions.... a bit more expensive, but worth it for my
taste. And mileage will vary....
You can run Win2000 on a MacIntel directly until you are used to the Mac
OS, and then you'll never look back.
