Hi Y'all,
I would like to say that I hope the new people who have posted here of late continue to do so. It is nice to have some different input. It doesn't have to be about Janet and Muttley ya know..Don't be intimidated or get your feelings hurt. The few people that are nasty here are nasty to everyone even each other..

Waving hi, from an AOL lurker.. just signed up thru Google, so if anyone can suggest a different venue to get here, I'm on DSL and MSN through my DSL.
Thanks,
Eleanor

A newsreader like Xnews (which if I ever get unlazy I'll go back to using myself) or Outlook, or Netscape can all be used to read Usenet without having to go through a web interface like google.
There are many wise people here who would be better at talking you through that than I would be :-)
Welcome

Hi Judy & Tara...
I do have Outlook Express, but never used it. I downloaded Xnews, but am not sure where it is. I generally acces internet via wither IE (which takes me to googlenews) or AOL... both through DSl... Sigh.

Anyway, I've been lurking for a few weeks here and find some of you quite entertaining in a variety of ways..
I'm simply a difficult dog pet owner, but she has taught me TONS...

It's in the folder you downloaded it to. Or to your Desktop, which is sometimes the default location.
You need to locate the file, and then double-click on it, and it should install itself automatically. You may have to answer a few questions along the way.
You can also use Outlook Express.
You just have to configure it correctly to point to your provider's newsgroups. If it's AOL, I think you're out of luck. I don't think they do newsgroups.
So you'll have to use something like news.individual.net (about a buck a month) to gain access to Usenet.

It sounds like you're a paying AOL customer. Which means no access to newsgroups, I think.

I hope you'll stick around. We'll eventually get you going (provided you're willing to pay a buck or so a month to gain accss to Usenet), and once we do, you'll wonder why it took you so long to switch.

Well, that's certainly the closest thing to a warm welcome I've seen on this list. If I'm included in that, thanks! Sandy in OK
