^^^ Oops forgot about your "In Oz" caveat. No, I don't know if there's a free
NNTP server here. But I did use the foreign NNTP servers (in India) and
they worked great with Netscape news since it downloads the headers first
(it's a customisable setting) and the articles later.
Give graphical newsreaders a try. tin and even pine work well enough if
you want to stay in character mode.
If anyone runs a free nntp feed in Oz, especially over port 80, send me
a holler. :)
