I have never used newsgroups ever, so I'll have first to look for
software to do so and then how to set it up. Years ago, when I looked,
news servers were prohibited at work, so I gave up, and I haven't tried
My experience (admittedly small) at c.t.t. wasn't really one of too
high technical level, it was rather a different order of problem:
generally the answer was either "your LaTeX package is too old, you
should get the version that was released late yesterday night" or "the
LaTeX (visual) default setup was designed by people who know what they
were doing, if you are looking for something different then it's just
that you've got bad taste" or "you shouldn't try to adapt LaTeX to your
needs, but rather adapt your needs to LaTeX". I'm caricaturing, but
that's in any case the feeling I got. I'll try harder though, see
whether I'm more successful.
