Fido/NNTP echomail/news


Hello all
I am inspired by Wikipedia via
topic and have an idea to share Fidonet echomail and some Usenet newsgroup over Outernet. It will be even better if people can request subscription via APRS/another uplinks. What is a weak points in my idea?


The weak point is the uncontrollable amount of traffic that this causes. Of course the uplink station
can just cut off the feed for the rest of the day when some amount is reached, but it would then be
an incomplete feed. Also, it is unclear what file format you could use that users would be able to
conveniently handle in an environment like this. So you would probably require yet another viewer app.
