I had AT&T Worldnet which has a completely different news server than
AT&T FastAccess (formally BellSouth). There are no longer any
alt.binaries in BellSouth. I'm not about to create another monthly
charge, but would like to see the Walnut Desk. There are some
websites that offer free photo storage which I will have to start
using to post any binaries.
I noticed that I have access to about 30,000 newsgroups. Used to
have 90,000 and more. After doing a search on "woodworking" I got the
following hits (on newsgroups.bellsouth.net):
No binaries here and I've been considering dropping AT&T.
I'm using astraweb as newsserver for those groups that Verizon is now
preventing me from frequenting. 25 GB for $10. So far (since about June
20) I used up 50 MB. So I'll be set for years, since the credit doesn't
expire. My posts do not appear to get there as fast as with Verizon
(which is instantaneously, as far as I can determine), but they all do
get there within minutes (and propagate to the Verizon servers
instantly), and other aspects seem to be great as well. See
news.snet.sbcglobal.net does, which is a former SBC server rolled into at&t.
It sounds like you have the old AT&T service, where many of us have
former SBC news accounts which migrated to Prodigy, and then rolled up
into at&t service.
