I don't have much choice in using my gmail account. I don't have a
access via my ISP.
When I changed my home account to a new ISP, I also
lost the usenet groups there. Then in another group,
someone posted something about http://www.individual.net/
It is run by a university in Berlin, Germany. They require a simple
sign up process, but it is free.
This has met my needs. It can be used from most news readers,
like Outlook Express, Forte Agent/Free Agent, Opera, Netscape, etc.
They don't have binary groups, which is fine for my needs.
So far it has worked well for me, but I don't use it a whole lot.
