I'm sure there is already a "critical mass" at Utter Access, so I am hoping
that some of us will populate a newsgroup, or another, perhaps less popular,
My suggestion for a newsgroup is in my SIG. For those who don't have a news
server, Eternal September appears to have as good feedback as any free news
server. I've been using "news.individual.net" operated by the Free
University of Berlin, text-only, no graphics, inexpensive but not free, and
it's generally worked well with Outlook Express.
