You know Usenet still exists, right? September finally ended and so the
volume is down, but that is no bad thing.

I run a transit server for my own amusement. (It's even listed in "The
Official TOP1000 Usenet Servers".) I keep toying with asking my peers to
send a full feed instead of just the handful of hierarchies and groups I'm
interested in.
