Discontinuance of Newsgroup Links by AOL

Guys:
I still use dial up on AOL and they are discontinuing the newsgroup service link to this and other groups.
It states that a link to this group is available through Google. If someone has
it bookmarked, drop me a line with the URL and I'll bookmark it.
Otherwise, you won't see me around. LOL (because I can't get here).
Thanks,

Well, now there's one more reason to drop A(ssholes)O(n)L(ine) and move to another ISP, eh?
In the meantime, you can access the group through the web via http://extra.newsguy.com /
More specifically, http://drn.newsguy.com/news-bin/wwwnews?newsgroups=alt.autos * gets you to the neighbourhood, and these get you directly into the NG's:
http://drn.newsguy.com/news-bin/wwwnews?alt.autos.camaro
http://drn.newsguy.com/news-bin/wwwnews?alt.autos.camaro.firebird
Those aren't quite the same as a regular news client, but hey....they'll serve in a pinch, anyway...at least until you switch ISP's. ;)

I always was aware that AOL sucked, this just strengthens the point. They are correct, you can use Google to do groups, but it is a lame way for an ISP to behave. But then AOL I guess always was a reluctant ISP as such. As cool as Google is and all, there is just no substitute for access to a genuine news server and using a proper news reader client (such as Forte Agent). Good luck. I hope you find your way in staying with us in the Google groups.

One of the reasons I quickly dropped MSN as an ISP a couple of years ago is because they don't provide news service. Of course neither does Juno (that I use for "on the road" access) but SBC/Yahoo provides a server with my DSL service that I can use from anywhere. So it's no big deal for me.
