Sadly, no. Georgia Tech does not carry any alt. groups, although I do
have access, using the laUNChpad network at North Carolina. You can imagine
how slow that can be, tho'.

I can't post from UNC, but I do have some e-mail addresses that will direct
posts to any newsgroup you want, including alt. groups. I was wondering,
couldn't there also be places that will bundle up and mail you the posts
of a certain group. 'Course, I can imagine that would make your mailbox
pretty stuffed. The net.gods might not like that.
Don't get me wrong, I think an alt. group is a great idea. I just hope
the creators of it keep in mind that not everybody is going to be able
to read it conveniently, if at all.
