alt.windows7.general newsgroup - Server Name??

Reference Email Subject: Mysterious Message in Drafts Folder, by Grenou, 
dated Saturday, November 28, 2009, 5:43 AM., comment: "I subscribe to 
alt.windows7.general."

Grenou, I would very much appreciate the name of the server for the 
alt.windows7.general newsgroup.  I already subscribe to
news.microsoft.com and msnews.microsoft.com but could not find the 
alt.windows7.general newsgroup on either of these servers.  Thanks for any 
help, Sam.

If you're not in the UK, this isn't much help:

news.btinternet.com

which through is my ISP BT Internet.

It's alt.windows7.general

Not
alt.windows7.general newsgroup.

Hi, Sam.

Microsoft hosts over 2,000 newsgroups here on its public news server.  But 
this is only a small part of Usenet, which offers well over 100,000 
newsgroups, hosted by many different servers around the world.  Each server 
may "mirror" newsgroups posted on other servers, in addition to its own 
hosted groups.  (The Microsoft server does not mirror others.)  I don't know 
which news server is actually the host for the alt.windows7.general 
newsgroup - but I don�t need to know because that newsgroup is mirrored on 
the news server provided by my ISP and included in my monthly subscription 
fee.  My ISP's News Account is news.grandecom.net - but that won't do you 
much good because you don't use Grande Communication as your ISP.

Up until a year or so ago, ISPs typically included a news server in their 
Internet "bundle".  Now, many do longer do that, partly because of fears of 
litigation.  Others still carry many Usenet newsgroups, but have dropped the 
alt.* groups.  You will have to ask your own ISP (att.net?) if a news server 
is included for the monthly fee that you pay and, if so, what the server's 
address is.  Once connected to a server, you can click "Newsgroups" and type 
"win 7" into the search box to see if that NG is carried by that server.

If your ISP does not provide a news server, there are thousands available, 
many of them free.  When I search for "free news server", Google and Bing 
each get well over 100,000 hits.

Sad to say, though, some of the same inconsiderate trolls who have tried to 
ruin these MS NGs have already found that Usenet group.  :>(

Microsoft news servers only carry Microsoft newsgroups.

HI, Sam.

You're welcome - and thanks for the feedback.

One thing I forgot to mention:  While Microsoft does not mirror other NGs, 
many other servers DO mirror some or all of the Microsoft NGs.  Trouble is, 
the process of relaying messages to and from the MS server often results in 
messages that are out of sequence or delayed - or just lost.  So it's best 
to continue to get these MS groups from msnews.microsoft.com .

See you at alt.windows7.general  ;<)

How do you enter Unicode characters that don't have a Alt-nnnn shortcut?
I have a need to enter a range of non-English names into a combo box on a form in an Access 2003 application. Sometimes this requires the use of accented characters that do not appear on a UK keyboard. If I refer to the Windows XP Character Map facility (charmap,.exe) then I can see that many such foreign characters have been allocated an Alt-nnnn code that is displayed at the bottom right of the Character Map acreen. This makes it easy to enter these characters. However, many other characters have not been given an Alt-nnnn keyboard shortcut. They only have a U-FFFF code, displayed at...
