RE: [gpsstash] Do we want a usenet group? (RFD)


I like the idea of having a newsgroup!

How about placinging it isn the rec.games.* hierarchy? Maybe rec.games.gps?
Then, if needed, we could always branch that into rec.games.gps.geocaching,
rec.games.gps.geodashing, and whatever else gets invented.

Great idea!
