Usenet / Newsgroups

Ok, I'm seriously lost on this one folks. I don't get this whole Usenet thing, but I want to check it out, I feel like I'm missing out on an essential part of my 'net addiction.

Plus there are a few topics I've been referred to that I want to read.

Point being, can someone point me to a good, stable client? I refuse to use Outlook Express. Perhaps a FAQ or two on how to connect to the network. I'm under the impression it works something like IRC. (ie, free) Am I mistaken?


Something?

Pondering the mystery of rainbows, UFOs, and ****ing magnets.

Are you talking bout a news reader like Xnews or News Shark?


When I get home people'll ask me, "Hey Hoot, why do ya do it man? Why? Just some war junkie?" Ya know what I'll say? I won't say a goddamn word. Why? They won't understand. They won't understand why we do it. They won't understand that it's about the men next to you, and that's it. That's all it is.
