  1. Same rubbish same cross posting from other groups, dribble coming out
    both ears of posters its going down hill.

    Guess I havnt really missed much.

    NZ groups used to be well regarded internationally, and is among the
    top posted to NNTP groups world wide, pity it is such rubbish now.

    Welcome back. You must have got your new place sorted. Don't bother with
    the motor racing just yet. It's still off season bickering.

  3. >,
    Apart from a scuffle over the Dotcom vs. Stormtroopers incident it's
    been the silence of the grave in here lately.

    Since I filter crossposted stuff and is good at filtering
    too I see very little rubbish of the spam and x-post variety.

    About the only ng I subscribe to that has any notable traffic volume is

    <sigh> -P.

  4. Maybe, but it's still very useful, and it's a whole lot better now those
    two teenage morons have stopped squabbling about the relative merits of
    Linux & Windows

    They have? Great! I've not seen any spill-over for a long time (I have them
    killfiled) and was hoping...

    Maybe we can get this group back to it's old glory although.... MY take on
    the [relative] demise of nz.comp is that computers are becoming more and
    more 'home appliances' and less esoteric. Also modern OS's, for all that
    some of us may think, are making life easier for computer users.

    Oh, while I'm here; Anyone want a few Tualatin Celerons in the 1.1 / 1.2GHz
    range, along with a couple 'Slot-T' adapters to run them on (suitable)
    Coppermine slot boards? Oh, and a socket upgrade from the same company to
    upgrade a Coppermine Skt 370 to be Tualatin-capable?

    I paid an arm and a leg for these things several years ago, can't be arsed
    putting them on TM for the pittance that a 'consumer' would pay and can't
    bring myself to throw them out (yet). If anyone wants them they can have
    them for the cost of postage. LOL, I'll throw in a bunch of old SDRAM, most
    of it 128MB sticks, can't vouch for it, it's just sitting there....

    If there's a home for it either reply here of you can get me at - followed by the @ and

    I discovered some of the UK Linux groups and they strike me as working on
    the problem rather getting to personal abuse. Still Dan C has not "found"
    them yet.

    Thanks Collector, you are beginning to sound like my flat mate Zipdisk..

    The Consensus from a Number of friends that read this news group stated
    that most here are utter Idiots..

    Do what I did, stick them all in a Kill file, mine is very large now..
    Then you don't have to here all these rants and raves, I wonder what the
    world thinks of the juveniles in this news group, not a very good image
    of New Zealand..

    By flatmate (one word normally btw) you mean the one that co-habitates
    the airing closet inside your cranium?
    Woger.. has "a Number of friends that read this newsgroup"? lmfao.
    If you've been putting all the utter Idiots(sic) in there it must have
    around 300 of your own aliases in there by now.
    I'd be more worried what they think about the cranky old poms if I was you.

    tl;dr: Sigh, another new Woger nym for the killfile.

    I believe you may have fallen for an entertaining parody.

  14. What a bunch of Stupid Idiots this news group has become.

    Kill Files it like dumping the Radio or TV if you don't like one of the
    news items, seems so stupid to do a 100% kill file because of one
    indecent, that you might not like, it seems to me that the truth hurts

    Its like reading a book and found a paragraph that you don't like so to
    you rip up the book, this is the equivalent to a Kill file.

    Every ones have good and bad times, but you just dont kill every one
    just because of the bad times, seems to me some here have a very bad
    vision of life or lack a life.

    You might be right, its lacking the usual x-no-archive... but somebody
    must be bloody bored to do it, and to do it so well.

    LOL. But when parody imitates life *so* closely, how can you be sure?
