Re: Gary is displeased with me today

"This line is added to the header of a posted article by the server. The contents of the header is either the IP address or the fully qualified domain name of the client HOST posting the article."

You're not as technical as you think you are. "Client HOST" refers to an NNTP client APPLICATION, not the box on your desk. An NNTP client would actually be a SERVER to a desktop PC. It COULD be your PC, but it's unlikely unless you're specifically enabling the NNTP protocol which virtually nobody does (and would not be smart unless you know what you're doing).

Do you have an NNTP Client HOST application running on your PC? I have XP Professional and I don't. I'm sure I could install it if I wanted.

Until Google, not all ISPs even allowed access to the newsgroups (i.e they didn't have NNTP servers...clients from the perspective of NNTP). You had to connect to specific newsgroup servers (if you could) and the news servers would mirror the newsgroups with what you were subscribed to. It pretty much sucked with the ISPs I had and never bothered with it.
