"za" regional newsgroup hierarchy 1994/02/16

--------------------------------- The following newsgroups have recently been created, and should be available on your system if you're accessing news from a site in Southern Africa. The "za" hierarchy is a rationalised replacement for the older "uninet" and "sanet" regional news hierarchies, which were used for discussions on various topics of local (i.e. Southern African) interest. These newsgroups are propagated to a large number of systems in this part of the world, and definitely also find their way to systems in the U.S. and Europe. Persons or sites in the U.S. wanting to receive some or all of these groups should contact Randy Bush - - in Portland, OR, to discover the best method of doing so. Looking for a job?/Offering a job?
