I use GG to read comp.lang.python because of the following combination
of factors. I would definitely be happier if there was another way to
do this, so that I wouldn't have to wade through lots of spam.
- I read it from both home and work.
- I can't install any additional software at work.
- There is no newsgroup reader software available at work.
- GG tracks read/unread status of every post. This is shared
between work and home through my Google account.
- When I (very rarely) post from work, I can't
do it by email, since outgoing email is blocked.
Alternative approach, what I do:-
Run a text mode (but very capable and mouse aware) newsreader on
my home system, read news locally using that.
Use ssh (is that available at worK?) to connect from work to home
and run the same newsreader in the same environment. If you can't
even ssh from work then you can always use an 'ssh from the web'
app from your wenb browser.
The newsreader I use is tin by the way.
ssh would be even a bigger problem here. As I mentioned, I can't even email
from work to the outside! All web sites that provide remote connectivity
tools are blocked.
