Usenet was one of my favorite things about the internet.  I would love
for it to be revived.

I've been trying to assemble a fairly complete archive of Usenet (minus
the binary groups, you know what I mean) because it was a goldmine of
information and such a cool way of communicating.  There is a gigantic
hole in the 1990's and nobody seems to have archives.

At the time I wanted to run my own INN node eventually.  By the time it
became possible for me to set up anything resembling a
server-on-the-Internet, Usenet was pretty much over.
