As many of you know, it’s possible to access most of the midrange.com mailing lists via a news reader (nntp) using the gmane.org news server.
Now, however, it’s also possible to access the lists via a news reader using a midrange.com news server!
Visit news.midrange.com for information on how to do this.
In order to prevent abuse, access to the news server is controlled with passwords, but it’s not hard to get a password.
Look for more new functionality coming down the pipe in the comming months.
Special thanks to James Rich for assistance getting the news server running.
