    G'day mates,

    On April Fool's Day n.i.n goes "commercial" and users of this
    excellent news server will have to come up with Euro10 (ca. AUD17) for
    an annual subscription.

    Anyone worked out the most convenient way for an Aussie to pay this
    fee? Alternatively, anyone know of an equivalent news server on the
    local scene that supplies a comparable service at a competitive price?


    Cheers, Phred.

  3. I just payed my 10 Euros by registering with Firstgate and having it
    charged to a credit card. They do AEMX, VISA, MasterCard, and Diners Club.

    It was about as difficult as falling off a log.

    Cheers,

    I presume you didn't use AEMX? ;-)
    I'm very fragile...

    But thanks for your response, Gary. I like to hear that others have
    successfully done it rather than be the guinea pig myself -- I
    discovered the buggers won't even let you see what the payment options
    are until after you've "read" their assorted docos, hence my query.

    Also glad to hear at least one other thinks the service is worth
    subscribing to. I wonder how many of their 250,000 present users will
    cough up the dough?

    P.S. Added aus.net.news to the distro as I meant to do initially.



    Cheers, Phred.

  5. Haven't you heard of the "Armenian/Ethiopian/Mexican eXchange Credit
    Corporation"? Very reliable :)
