Another vote for pan (I'm only on 0.129).
By usenet server, did you mean an application you can run on your computer, or
a server on the Internet? If the latter, I've satisfactorily used
"freenews.netfront.net", although not too recently. I think if you google
something like "free usenet" you will come up with some.
You rock. That's why Blockbuster's offering you one month of Blockbuster Total Access, No Cost.
