Well nuts

Unless Ford.Prefect changes his mind or someone else with ties to the source of books steps up, newsgroup looks in question for new releases.

this is Ford's last message Feb 23/2018:

Code: Select all

I wanted my run here to be a long time...I lurked for years and leached off 
Bluerobe until I discovered THE SOURCE. I didn't think it would come to a close 
so quickly. I forget who posted in the last few months about the complainers 
wear people out but it is true, it wears you down. It's amazing the number of 
people that don't bother to look for things and just post REQ after REQ. 
Everything I post is very easily found, including the stuff that any decent NNTP
server with any sort of retention will have. Well I have already said more than 
I wanted.... So long and thanks for all the fish... oh wait I never got any fish
or anything out of this...

That's a bit discouraging for sure. I hate torrents ;)

Looks like another may step up to keep posting on usenet. He figures it'll be slower that Ford.

I appreciated Ford.Prefect's efforts and hope the next to step up will be as equally skilled.

Well good news, as I'm sure most have noticed, Mon-El took up the mantle and did an admiral job of posting new releases.

Kudos to him. It is appreciated by us all. :)
