Moved here in 2006 from a 10 yr stint in the mountains of SW Virginia. Now a city boy - fortunately, it doesn't matter where I live - always something good in every place.

RSS access to Newsgroups via Google
This dandy tip comes from Michael Niehau's blog . Want to have feeds for your favorite Newsgroups? Here's a Feed URL for an arthritis group - http://groups-beta.google.com/group/misc.health.arthritis/feed/msgs.xml. All you have to do for different groups at Google is to replace the "misc.health.arthritis." part of that URL with the name of the Google group you want. Then add this feed to your RSS NewsReader and everytime you open your "newsgroups" channel in your feedreader, it will automatically update all your groups for you. Very, very handy. I recommend you try FeedDemon as your news reader. It is outstanding and comes with a free trial.
