    If you just want to see the messages, you can go to Google Groups and browse or search for alt.binaries.e-book

    You can also post messages from Google Groups, but Google is oriented more towards searching newsgroups and doesn't make it convenient to participate in the discussion.

    To really participate, you need a) to install a news reader such as the one that comes with Opera (if you're on Windows you already should have Outlook Express) and b) access to a news server. If your ISP doesn't include news service, you can search the internet for publically accessible news servers. There are few if any free ones left, however.

    cheers,

    Marj
