    I want to take a moment to thank you all for the assistance I have received
    over the years from Windows 95, 98, XP and now Windows 7. I know I have
    answered some questions for those who needed my help too. Now it's time to
    say goodbye to all of you. Thanks to Microsoft and now Cox turning off
    Usenet access, I will no longer be present to learn from you, nor will I be
    able to answer those questions I can help with as well.

    Thanks to you, all my friends. Its been real.

    And to Alias... Get a life and find a real Ubuntu group to spout your
    drivel. You, I won't miss.

    Alias smokes too much HASH to get a life! Alias lives to spew garbage about
    that INFERIOR Ubuntu that nobody wants!

    Three years ago I subscribed to Astraweb. It's not free, but it's
    $10 for 25 GB, with no expiration date. So far, I have used .44
    GB. My $10 should be good for about 57 years of Usenet usage.

    I don't subscribe to any binary newsgroups, however.

    As good as free, then.

    And please invite me to the party when you use up the 25GB :)
