    news.aioe.org. Or if you are on a static IP address, you are more than welcome to help me test out mine (since I poll from aioe.org on that
    box as well as on my BBS).

    That's an interesting concept. I am wondering if Synch will allow another Synch board to use newslink.js and connect to the first system by importing/exporting newsgroups?

    I don't see why not, since Sync does have its own NNTP service.

    It appears that unless you set a "Newsgroup name" value for an area via scfg, the newsgroup names presented to clients are dynamically generated based on the internal codes of the group and message area. (So if you want, say, alt.bbs.sysop to appear as such for clients, you'd need to set that value for the relevant area.)

    Would be something interesting to try. As long as there is a user
    account associated with the account on the Synchronet side, I don't see
    why it would not work.

    ... We now return to your previously-scheduled topics.

    Someone over in Agoranet was interested and I sent him the instructions but nothing came of it. Oh well...
