MS Closed Newsgroups

Microsoft recently shutdown their newsgroup server, and asked users to move to their online forums for community help. But people can still access newsgroups using a 3rd party news-server or even google groups.

Article: VB Community Transition

How to Access Newsgroups?
* Go to eternal-september.org or aioe.org
* Register an account and change server in your Newsreader.
* and join comp.lang.basic.visual.misc or microsoft.public.vb.general.discussion

Note: You can also use Google Groups but we cannot access it using a newsreader. Detailed Instruction here

ClassicVB Users Regroup at comp.lang.basic.visual.misc
