News is dead! Long live News!

Gmane A few weeks ago, NTK mentioned GMane, a mailing-list to NNTP gateway. I never really got into the whole newsgroup thing, so I didn't pay much attention. However, last week I noticed that the traffic from the blosxom mailing list was getting a little voluminous, and realised that a newsreader would probably be a better tool to handle it. I gave GMane a try, and indeed, it's far better. I'd recommend it to anyone subscribed to mid- to high-volume public mailing lists.
