Google Groups search can't find hardly any of my posts, or anybody's
posts in the last year.
Groups Search is broken that's all.

I'll be leaving Usenet when the New Google Groups replaces the old.
Unless another web browser can provide such a simple service as
displaying a Usenet Group. For some reason NNTP and HTTP are mutually
