I am from England, so I know what you mean.
But now I live in the US, where the closing of a good pub (aka bar) is a more
serious matter. My local bar burned down a few years ago, and life hasn't been
the same since.

Yes, I will subscribe on eternal-september (such a neat name!), though I confess
that I have largely thrown in the towel to the forums.
Try the NNTP access; it's pretty good now.

Yes the party continues on the forums, although, they are not as easy to do
threaded conversations. The momentum is picking up there.

I certainly hope so. I owe much to all of you guys for having
the patience to help a foo bar like me who just wants to learn
program. This group has been excellent and the teachers here
are all of the best caliber.

the bottom of the browser :-(
The newsgroups are instant by comparison :-(
