I have posted an RFD proposal to create a new Usenet newsgroup called comp.sys.mac.vintage for discussion of PPC and 68k Macintosh computers.

If anyone here still reads Usenet, and would be interested in such a group, please head over to news.groups.proposals and make your comments on the RFD.

Thanks!

I'm not a mac fan, but this is just too cool for words. Usenet uber alles! :)

I keep hoping September will end some day. *wistful sigh*

Some people like to nit-pick over small details so now there is a 3rd RFD in news.groups.proposals. Be sure to post to that one too to say you like it.

Hopefully this group will be created this month.

Wouldn't it make more sense to have a comp.sys.vintage.mac so other categories could be added? (comp.sys.vintage.apple, comp.sys.vintage.commodore, etc)?

There was a proposal for a comp.sys.vintage group in 2007, but apparently nothing happened.
