Anyone have any comments?

Well, actually, I do.  I see the biggest problem with using newsgroups is 
that some of us use ISP's that either don't allow you to use newsgroups or 
your ISP owner speaks a foreign language (I'm stationed in Turkey and my ISP 
doesn't like to respond to questions in English.  My English speaking 
friends can't translate technical English to Turkish. My Turkish is too 
rudimentary to communicate technical terms.  So, I am out of luck.).  That 
said, I would suggest setting up some kind of forum-type website.  I know 
that delphi.com allows you to set up a forum for free.  Of course, it will 
inundate you with advertisements, but that is a small price to pay, I think. 
  I have wanted to get involved with the website newsgroup, but my ISP seems 
to have dropped support for newsgroups. This is very disheartening for me.  
End of pity party.

The now defunct Maximum Linux website even had a link to their forum on 
delphi that showed what questions/rants/etc were current.

If anyone knows of any online newsgroup reader that will allow me to 
subscribe to the crosswire newsgroups, I would appreciate knowing which 
ones.  I have subscribed to a few, but they don't allow you to specify 
anything outside of what they already have.

In Christ,
