Final reminder curiosity by Moldy Cheese
I'm curious about something. Checking the headers in the "reminder" messages from Microsoft, in the earlier messages the NNTP-Posting-Host was tide548.microsoft.com 131.107.0.118. In the "final reminder" message the NNTP-Posting-Host is c-24-22-159-236.hsd1.wa.comcast.net 24.22.159.236. Comcast??...

still working by Motor T
So far, so good. I'm reading and posting through nntp.aioe.org. Don't know how long it will last. It's sad the way this world seems to work. As we get older the younger generations seem to cast us aside. It appears they think of us as 'irrelevant, obsolete'. I'm beginning to hate those...

Red flag from the WWOTN! by Heirloom[_3_]
Hi All, Wow, I go away for a few days and the crazy Canuck tells me the Me forum is going to disintegrate with the rest, bummer. Before it dies completely, I must say that I have enjoyed conversing with each and every one of you. I know I have never been as much help on the technical stuff...

T-4.... Backup time! by Noel Paton[_3_]
Ladies and Gents. Depending on how MS cut us off, and the NNTP client you use, you may suddenly find that you have NO newsgroups in your reader when it happens. So now would be a good time to back up your message store if you want to keep the priceless gems you've garnered over the last...

new entry in context menu gone by Michael Romes
A while after installing new video drivers I noticed that the "new" entry in my context menu (that which appears if I rightclick in a folder) is gone. When using Google I find a lot of articles about adding that entry to Windows98SE by editing the registry - but I found nothing specific to...

Oh a tree in motion! by Big Monkey Man
What gets me is that Helen Shapiro! 'Walking Back to Happiness' starts off great, then turns into something by a middle-aged male Jewish wide boy - say, Michael Winner. Oyvay! She obviously had a lovely singing voice but was managed by someone only interested in the width. And Smokey Robinson's...
