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).

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://drn.newsguy.com/news-bin/wwwnews?newsgroups=alt.autos * gets you to
the neighbourhood, and these get you directly into the NG's:
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
