I just completed this design for my parents for their birthdays (they are
only 5 days apart).
It was in the Dec/Jan 2004/2005 Issue of WOOD Magazine (Issue 160).
Pics are in ABPW.
Any comments are welcome.
In general, you need a newsreader that can read bianry files. Google
rec.woodworking for a complete list of newsreader suggestions (seems like a
thread pops up on this topic every few months).
I use Xnews. Google it and you will find many places that you can download
it from. http://xnews.newsguy.com/ is the homepage for Xnews.
This does require that you have access to an actual news server. I have
SBC, so I use theirs. If you don't have an ISP with a server, there are
news servers out there that you can access... I don't know how though.
Another way to see binary newsgroups is to subscribe to one of the websites
that archive the images and allow you to view them through their web
interface. Again, as I have an ISP with a news server, I don't know the
names of these off the top of my head. Others may be able to help out.
Best of luck,
