Eons ago, when I still connected to BBS's over dialup, Usenet was my primary mode of communications ... I bemoaned the coming of web forums. You'd have to manage 20 web pages rather than one list of 20 groups ... bandwidth issues, and so on.

Of course it is all true ... and worse. I still manage to keep track of a list of newsgroups. It was help I gave to a Jedi Outcast beginner (just got the game) today that mad me wonder if people here are Usenet aware?

Or is it yet another way in which I show my fossilitude? ;)

You're just old, is all. *Dances around in such a manner as to make the old feller feel even older*

it used to be the only thing worth using back in uni days, but i haven't really used it in years. I'm surprised that there still seem to be a lot of people using it though.

I don't know if that is good or bad. I spend more time on web forums now, but it is all much less efficient than the old 1 work email, 1 personal email, and a bunch of usenet groups days ...
