    Usenet Provider

    Do you need a special service provider to view Usenet or will a standard ISP work? I have Comcast at my house and I was wondering if I could just use that to view Usenet.

    Change your service provider and tell them why you are doing it.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Unfortunately I don't have a say in my provider. I'm only 15 and am way to lazy to get a job. The stupid part is child porn thing was just an excuse to stop paying the costs of usenet. Comcast already annoys me already and this didn't really help.
