I concur with all of Al's points.

Hey Richard,

I don't think there is any such thing, i.e., usenet is not
a "one-server/many client" architecture. It is a
"many-server/many client" architecture. Usenet
articles propagate around the world to all usenet
news servers via the NNTP (Network News Transport
Protocol), then clients suck the news off of their respective
servers. 

I think.

As a matter of fact, I have seen public newsgroups created by asking ISP's to "carry" groups that were privately hosted by a vendor. If enough people ask their respective ISP to carry comp.soft-sys.octave (or whatever), it might just "appear".

It actually works that way. The difference is when we use control messages like "newgroup <newgroup-name>" things are automatized (not on all servers but most).

Okay, I have prepared outline of an RFD. I would like you people to take a look at it before it comes here and on news.announce.newgroup officially. Shall I post it here? -- +-----------------------------------+ | Himanshu Singh Chauhan | | MCA (Final Year) | | I.G.

Himanshu,

please check the clock on your computer or perhaps let your newserver
ISP check theirs out.  you are posting in the future:

right now, it is 6:04 Greenwich Time.  can't be 8:30 yet.

In a short while I can use usenet. That means that

a. I don't have subscribe to anything
b. I don't have to go to a website (and thus
use a web interface) to get messages but
instead can use a usenet news client.
c. I don't get unsolicited messages
d. My message persists in a thread.
e. etc., etc.
