I've been using Usenet for a very long time. I haven't checked in for about a month. But with the addition of a Nook, I went back to Usenet to see what I could pick up.

But dang, I couldn't connect. Did some research and found that at the end of June, Cox discontinued newsgroups. No more Usenet. If I want access, it looks like I have to pay extra money and go with one of the big commercial providers like Giganews.

I have to do some research on this. What happened to Google Newsgroups? Did they give up? Is there anything on Usenet except piracy any more?
