New newsgroups

There are three new newsgroups created. Let's move discussions on CVS,
AspectJ and UI Designer to corresponding groups.

Good idea, but what about the web forums?

Eugene,
I don't see the new news groups off the forum page, is there a trick to this?

Thanks

As you can probably guess by now, it seems Jetbrains folks prefer the NNTP inteface to the web interface. I think they created the new groups on the newsgrup server but haven't updated the Jive forums links.

Hello Eugene, remember us poor folks who can't access NNTP at work :)

Not being a firewall wizard, I'm genuinely wondering:
is there a GOOD reason for a sysadmin to prevent developers from using
nntp?

Prevent employees from spending working hours on non-work related topics (alt.binaries.pictures/music) rather than doing something useful like discuss enhancements of their favourite IDE ?!
Disabling newsgroups access altogether is so much easier than selective access.
Off course it's totally useless with all those thing being available on HTTP also.

There are forums created now as well.

So get your admin to allow you to access the port ONLY on the jetbrains
nntp server...

No alt.binaries here...
