    Newsgroup Listing

    I'm not a user group reader so it would be a waste for me to download and install newsgroup programs, so I took the other route which was search what I was looking for on Google Groups unfortunately it didn't list everything only the name. I have the exact name of the group I'm looking for, I just want to do a search for a specific name and I'm hoping someone who is a newsgroup jockey could help me.

    If you type the exact name of the group into the search box normally it comes right up.

    E.g. ott.jobs, alt.rec.disc, etc...

    I hope you can find, because I sure can't if you come up empty handed well I'll just have to let it go.

    Hmmm, that one doesn't show up.

    I'm not sure how Google decides what groups to include and which ones not to.

    Maybe try to find it through the servers listed here

    My ISP provides a non-binary feed of that group. It currently shows only a single spam message. To discover whether there's anything else there, you'd need to subscribe to a news server providing binary groups (taking care to read the terms relating to ownership of copyrighted material, of course).

    Hopefully someone who is subscribed to a news server to clarify if there is anything in this group. I won't need it frequently I just would like to find something specific and if found then I'll be done.
