    Newsgroups demise

    I see that today is the final day for MS Newsgroups.

    The shutdown is phased in from 6/1 to 10/1. Some are slated to close
    tomorrow and others over the next few months.

    Well, hopefully they will move to the microsoft web forum, rather
    than craping all over the regular Usenet newsgroups. You may
    remember a few years back when AOL started offering Usenet access

    [compton ~]$ sepdate
    Today is Mon September 6117, 1993 (UTC)
    [compton ~]$

    unleashing the Endless September - and when they finally killed off
    their own news servers and mailed all of their users telling them that
    groups.google.com was the replacement. Some users (and even some
    news servers) filter off posts with a 'googlegroups.com' string in
    the Message-ID: header just because of that.

    The Endless September was a reference to college students and their new
    found access to the internet. AOL managed to compound this disaster a few
    years later.
