    Hello,
    I recently setup a few Usenet groups but I have not had much traffic. Are there any Usenet groups that are active. Please forgive me if this is not supposed to be posted here. :)

    This is a list of all groups on my news server and the number of articles in them. Those with >5000 maybe could be active.

    I don't expire articles but then again, I don't have every article from day 1 either :)

    Enjoy.

    Actually, I'm going to change it up

    https://newsfeed.endofthelinebbs.com/allgroups.txt will be updated around midnight CT

    and I'll produce a diff so it's easy to see which groups have got new articles and how many. I already have a diff for texting.

    I got the files backwards in the diff, I've swapped them around for tomorrow's run.
