AOL Kills Usenet Access
from the the-september-that-never-ended-has-ended? dept
According to Brian McWilliams, AOL has decided to stop offering Usenet access from within the AOL software. Obviously, users can still get access via Google Groups over the web, but for many it's not quite the same. Of course, what some may find amusing about all of this is that many Usenet veterans recall the September that never ended, when AOL first offered Usenet access and (according to many) killed off the usefulness of Usenet permanently. So, does this mean that the September that never ended has ended?
