    I'm thinking of pulling together a fairly basic but complete guide to getting going and using the groups proficiently. What I'd like is help from at least 1 more guy with a better windows background than myself. I figure we'll cover how to find stuff, with what software and techniques to find just about anything.. So basically the questions that are pretty standard for the boots up and coming...

    PM me if your interested and with a bit of what you think you can contribute.. I think probably starting a google doc as collaborators will work as a nice platform. Or I'll get creative and set up some fun server side stuff.. See how it goes..

    I hope to see some screen shots, basic functions, headers, nzb, searches, creating par2 rar archives and some posting..

    No time line at this point.. I'm fairly busy but can contribute time on a daily basis and before long it should be fairly complete..


    Let me know..

    bzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    This would be incredibly useful to me as a new Usenet user.

    I figured just as much.. I started somewhere too.. But I must say the open source Linux community is spot on when it comes to paying knowledge forward.. I have nothing to gain from doing this other than doing my part to help other people out. I have already put up a couple how-to's here. I hope this one can be a.. "so you want to use newsgroups".. See this site and then go buy an account and you'll be running like the pros in no time at all..

    So it starts... What I'm after is condensing all those links which I don't care to looks thought at the moment in to the one stop shop.. Believe me it won't be all that hard to do..

    Trim the fat server the meat and potatoes and be done with it.

    That's still looking like client specific.. Missing the whole idea of what the servers are about and how to use them regardless of clients.. While touching on clients should be a key point it is not how to use them...
