    It would be great to know which newsgroup to visit when you have a
    particular problem.
    Maybe someone could come up with a FAQ which included such a list.

    TIA

    That would be shit. It would turn usenet (more) into free customer
    support. Just rename the bastard Microsoft Usenet. Jesus.

    "So, Mr Slumpy you *really* are the perpetual comedian, aren't you ?" I
    threw back my head and roared with laughter as °Mike° continued:
    I doubt it, he's not really that good at it ;-)

    Nothing is off-topic in this NG.
    It may be asking rather a lot to expect one person to examine 100,000 groups
    to see which 0.1% should be in your list. -actually there are more then 100
    subjects known to humanity anyway, so Usenet itself would be a better
    resource.
    Why not search the list of groups on your server, or at googlegroups?
    What next, the 100 most useful websites?
    Its a mad idea!

    I'll take that as a "not often enough", then.

    Essential Newsgroups
    With so much to choose from, everybody will likely have their own
    unique Usenet reading list. But there are a few newsgroups that are
    particularly of interest to newcomers. Among them:


    news.announce.newusers
    This group consists of a series of articles that explain various
    facets of Usenet.

    news.newusers.questions
    This is where you can ask questions (we'll see how in a bit) about how
    Usenet works.

    news.announce.newsgroups
    Look here for information about new or proposed newsgroups.

    news.answers
    Contains lists of "Frequently Asked Questions" (FAQs) and their
    answers from many different newsgroups. Learn how to fight jet lag in
    the FAQ from rec.travel.air; look up answers to common questions about
    Microsoft Windows in an FAQ from comp.os.ms-windows; etc.

    alt.internet.services
    Looking for something in particular on the Internet? Ask here.

    alt.infosystems.announce
    People adding new information services to the Internet will post
    details here.
