4.5 What if I don't get this newsgroup? (alt.fan.conan-obrien)

Complain fiercely. :)

If you don't get news, ask your system administrator if you can. It
does take a lot of time and effort, not to mention disk space and
computer resources. However, if your site administrators know that
enough people from your site want it, they may be able to get it.

If you get news, but you don't get alt groups, ask your system
news administrator. Many admins don't like the "alt" groups because of
their size. However, your news administrator may decide to get them if
enough people ask.

If you don't specifically get alt.fan.conan-obrien while getting the
other alt groups, ask your news administrator to add it. It is a fairly
low-volume group and he should have no qualms about adding it.

There are some public access newsreaders available via telnet or
gopher. They frequently close due to overuse, so if you are desperate
enough to need one, you will have to hunt pretty hard to find one. They
do, however, exist. Your system administrator may be able to help you
find one.

Several resources exist that allow you to post to a newsgroup via
e-mail. For information on one of these services, mail:

remailer@replay.com

Some Conan web pages have links to the newsgroup in them. However,
you usually have to have a local news connection to use them. See
section 1.21 for a list of Conan web pages. There are also web pages
that specifically archive posts and give access to USENET newsgroups. There
are several, but two are:
