Anyone know anything about the Usenet?

    I heard about it and really want to visit. ASH sounds interesting.

    I know there are a lot of people here who remember the world before the internet, and usenet came out in 79, ASH in 91... So anyone?

    My only thing is finding an appropriate Newsreader. My phone isn't cutting it.

    Thunderbird, the email client, is a very good Usenet newsreader.

    As a bird and easily configured. You can DuckDuckGo and find instructions if the Wizard and Help screens that come with TBird aren't cutting it for you.

    Usenet existed before most cell phone services allowed internet access. :D

    Be careful with Usenet. It was - is? - heavily monitored by CIA and it's English associates. alt.politics.org.cia was very popular.

    They were very active in spamming entire newsgroups ala “Markovian Parallax Denigrate” .
