I downloaded the Pan Newsreader and put that address you mentioned in. It
does nothing whatsoever. It says that "Getting group list from
'nntp://news.gmane.org/gmane.linux.distributions.gnu-linux-libre'" is a
queued task. It also says I have "no connections"
I've never used Usenet. By the time I was old enough to understand how to use
the Internet, the Web had completely superseded Usenet already in practice.
But if I'm understanding what's going on correctly, that task is queued
because I have no connections, because my ISP (like most ISPs) does not offer
Usenet as a service. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
