Or rather hi some as I suspect some of you don't see my messages due to a
pathological hatred of GG.
Can anyone give me step by step instructions as to how to sort out free access
to uk.d-I-y via Newstap lite. I did have a look at it the other week, but
couldn't figure it out.
Pretty much like setting up any news client. Just need your server name and
password and off you go. It's easy enough to google the appropriate
setting for any news service.
I use Eternal September these days that works pretty well for a free
service. BTW, well worth paying for the full version of news tap if you
want to follow more than one group.
Go to Eternal September and register a username and password. It makes
sense to make both username and password "complex" - a mix of upper case,
lower case and numbers. Keep a record of your registration details.
Go to Settings -> News Tap
Login Name: <Enter your login name>
Password: <Enter your password>
In the Personal section set
Mail: to a mail address that meets the rules on the Eternal September
Name: to the name you want in your posts.
Leave all other settings as they are.
Now in Newstap select Connect and slide the "Get list of all groups" to
"on" and all other switches to "off". Press "connect & transfer data" and
it will download all the groups in the server.
Now in groups select "+" and choose your groups.
Go back to "Connect" and select:
"Get list of all groups" OFF
"Load new articles" ON
"Send articles" ON
"Delete old articles" ON
"Delete read articles" OFF
You're ready to go.
