From: "William Anderson" > http://www.google.com/search?q=free+"news+servers" > http://news.cis.dfn.de/ No offence, William, posting just links to search engines and very popular search engines doesn't seem to me wise. I have searched with many different keywords on Google. I have found another search engine through Google. This new search engine is dedicated to news servers only. I have found hundreds of free news servers. Like I already said most are dead and many are with insufficient abilities. I recommend you news://msnews.microsoft.com. It is an ideal news server. I think it everything what a free news server needs to be. But it is dedicated to MS only. I was asking for any news servers that you use or you already know about. I am going to visit the second link that you have posted. Thanks! -- Syed Zeeshan Haider. http://szh.20m.com/ ----------------------------------- Allah says to Mankind: "Then which of the favours of your Lord will ye deny?"
