if you want to host it, i cant help you :( sorry

if you want to access one, what ISP do you use? and do they have a page on their website which has a news server address for you?

Most linux distributions come with the option to install an NNTP server, but i cant say i've heard of a Windows NNTPd

Perhaps if you know someone who uses linux they can host a passworded NNTP for you?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
