Hi, when with BT as isp I subscribed to alt.humor news group among others, since changing to Sky I've been unable to find out how to continue doing so. Any suggestions please? I use thunderbird for reading e-mails. TIA, regards, Yaesu

Use Google Groups, doesn't work the same way as usenet, but they list most of the text groups

Or you could subscribe to Teranews.

They have a free account that allows about 50mb a day of downloads, so fine for reading the odd text group.

Teranews have a one off registration charge $3.95
