Usenet

I don't know what I want to get out of this. It's just another way of sharing data, but it's old. It's like legacy internet, or something. It's probably important to keep these networks alive, I guess.

An NNTP protocol system.
NXB is an XML file format.

You need a news service and a newsreader (Usenet (NZB) client).

Services - Providers

  • AstraWeb - Pay for data, not access
  • GigaNews - People say this is a DOD op
  • EasyNews - Don't need a newsreader, they have their own browser
  • SnelNL - http://www.snelnl.com/

Clients

  • SnelNL
  • NZB Vortex

I'm trying Snel now.
