Greetings all, I am lurking out on alt.coffee via dp-news.maxwell.syr.edu. I receive them all fine, but am unable to post. My local ISP doesn't have a NNTP server of their own. What servers do you alties use to post to alt.coffee. Thanks, Jason -- Jason Brooks jbrooks ------------------------------- Hanging Out in the Heart of VA, With HW Gourmet, Poppery, and soon arriving BBQ roasters, With Bodum Chambord and Krups Gusto brewers, Drinking good coffee with anyone that arrives!

When alt.coffee comes up in google groups there is a link on the right towards the top that reads "Post a new message to alt.coffee" I haven'y actually tried this but I'm pretty sure it will work... ;^D Although I did notice some snide remark about using google to post there one time.... Happy posting, Johnny
I suggest that you call around for a new ISP that will give you an *outsourced* news service. Outsourcing gives you a "connection" to a major newsprovider, like Giganews or Supernews, rather than a local server at the ISP. Local servers are usually severely limited to only a few thousand groups and retention times of less than one week. An alternative is a free news server, but these are often limited to non-binary groups. Check out alt.free.newsservers. -- ---------- <Snip> <Snip>
I have Verizon (dsl) as a provider and I find it to have an excellent news server. In fact, I've noticed that many of those signed up with the paid news servers are often complaining about missing parts, while I sit there with the complete post already downloaded and burned......

I think it displays your email addy in the post. Rich Adams
when I signed up on Alt.coffee, I just went tohttp://google.com and clicked on groups at the top of the page and when the new page came up I typed in alt.coffee and bingo up it came. I signed up to be able to post. when I want to go to alt. coffee I still go thru goggle/groups Ron
Google groups is the easy and lazy way. At 09:56 PM 2/17/2004 -0500, you wrote: <Snip>
