Wow! I just got back on Usenet after literally 18+ years and it's great
to see this is one of the last text groups still active with real people
talking! Good to see Sam Goldwasser and others still on here. Sam
incorporated a "tip" I made regarding vacuum tube televisions on his TV
FAQ back in 1997! I had a lot of great memories lurking and posting in
this group from 1995 to 1997. Thanks all!

Welcome back! Were you trapped on a desert island with only a volleyball
for company?

Worse, I was stuck on ISPs without Usenet. I used to have various dial
up accounts until 2002 until reasonably priced DSL came to my area. The
difference was that DSL didn't include anything but total garbage
Usenet. Of course years later it was totally dropped from all ISPs and
still is. Now I have 635/20 Mbps cable service which is like a 1.2
million percent increase in speed from the dial up days and a reasonably
cheap Usenet provider that I pay extra for.
