    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats me...it's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

NY attorney general gets more ISPs to block alt.* newsgroups

From Ars Technica: NY attorney general gets more ISPs to block alt.* newsgroups

Ars Technica checks out the new website, designed more as a promotion for Andrew Cuomo than anything to remove child pornography. Again, this is a good deal for the ISPs, since they can stop providing USENET services to their customers, but screws said customers since if they want USENET access to legal binaries, forcing them to sign up and pay a seperate provider like Ngroups to receive USENET.

Welcome to the unholy wedding of self-serving politicians and self-serving ISPs…
