Into The Wild Blue Yonder

So I have had an itch as of late, to try out something new. Ever heard of Usenet? Well from Wikipedia:
Usenet (a contraction of user network) is a global, decentralized, distributed Internet discussion system that evolved from a general purpose UUCP architecture of the same name. It was conceived by Duke University graduate students Tom Truscott and Jim Ellis in 1979. Users read and post public messages (called articles or posts, and collectively termed news) to one or more categories, known as newsgroups. Usenet resembles bulletin board systems (BBS) in most respects, and is the precursor to the various web forums which are widely used today. Discussions are threaded, with modern news reader software, as with web forums and BBSes, though posts are stored on the server sequentially.

Sounds like an interesting place, don't it? Now getting to it is the trick. Internet providers sometimes have access to newsgroups, but if they do it is usually limited. Then the only thing you can do is find a service provider. Who?

That is where Newsdemon.com Newsgroups comes in. I have done a little digging, and asked some friends about who they recommend. They suggested Newsdemon. It has great rates with fast speeds! I wanna try it out myself, but from the looks of it Newsdemon is for the novice and the advanced user. It has plans and rates for anyone, with the prices very reasonable. They have 24/7 support if any problems do arise.

It seems to me Newsdemon.com Newsgroups is the choice for price, speed, and support.

I really want to try them out.
