useful tools such as search engines, SPAM filters, subscriptions,
stats, and much more.

and has all the
advantages of the modern webmail systems: You can search through
news group anywhere in the world without the need of setting up
MyNewsGroups :) is based on the great work of Florian
Amrhein, the developer of NewsPortal.
We add it the power of a MySQL database for the storation
of the articles posted in the news groups. With the
use of MySQL and the complete library of Floh to query
the News Server, MyNewsGroups :) can store
all the articles in the news groups querying the news
server only ONCE.

We need a Graphic Designer !!
MyNewsGroups :) needs
a bit of art.
All of the icons of the user interface have been taken of another
GPL projects, so I think that we need some new art to help MyNewsGroups
:) become popular and have its own design.

(logos, icons, graphics, Flash animations...) you're a master of
the Gimp, or other Propietary Design programs, please join us and

Hi to all, due to some problems with testings and the demo site, my news account with news.cis.dfn.de has been terminated. I'm a bit tired of trying to find quality news server access accounts at free or 'public' servers.
