Blog rearrangement

The Web Ranking is split into 3 categories:



1) general (Web Ranking)

2) Articles (Web Ranking Articles)

3) Edmonton ISP tracking (NetKnow and Edmonton ISP ranking)

Usenet will never be dropped by NetKnow

REcently some big Internet Provider announced that they are dropping USEnet Newsgroups aka Internet Newsgroups declaring that service passe.



I hope all their customers bolted and these providers have to shut down their internet operations!



USEnet is a cornerstone, fundamental and integral Internet service. Without it Internet would not exist!



Netknow declares it will carry USEnet unless the service dies a natural death. Also look at Google Groups which is Google Portal to Usenet.



Sorry, but if you do not have the internet fundamentals, you should perish. Saying USEnet/Internet Newsgroups are passe is as good as saying Internet e-mail is useless.
