I tried to get the cable company to lay a broadband connection
to the trains and planes I use, but *they* say the cable
would rip off if they moved ...

The clock is synced to the correct time. Automatically.
Whenever there's an Internet connection. Which means it may
be off 2 minutes if I don't have Internet for a whole month.

Sure. Usenet started in the 20th century, and not even in
the final decades of it.

You haven't encountered anyone who posts while travelling?
It seems you're still stuck in the mid 20'th century where
laptops, nettops, notebooks, tablets, smartphones and even PDAs
SIMPLY DON'T EXIST? Do computers still weight at least 25 kg
and use a heavy CRT in your world and therefore won't travel?

How do they manage to supply planes and trains?

Technically, you're wrong. There is a usenet server between
the client and the upstream servers, which lives on the laptop.
The client therefore can't add the date stamp of whenever the
server uplinks to his server, and of course the server is not
allowed to change such info.

If you want immediate, go use a phone or a chat of some sort.
Email is store and forward, Usenet is flood fill, both are
only bet effort.

No. I gave up punning, ever since I tried to make ten people laugh by
making ten different puns, and no pun in ten did.
