Clarinet newsgroups to be discontinued
February 20, 2004 :: Reni Roberts, ISC Networking and Telecommunications
During the FY2005 planning cycle, Penn's Network
Planning Task Force decided to discontinue the campus-wide site
license agreement for the ClariNet e.News service as of July 1,
This affects all newsgroups in the clari news hierarchy (clari.local.*,
clari.net.*, clari.news.*, etc.) currently provided by netnews.upenn.edu.
Other news hierarchies are not affected by this change.
Netnews is a set of Internet-based bulletin-board-style discussion
groups. Penn's Netnews server is netnews.upenn.edu and can be accessed
by any computer within the upenn.edu domain or by a user with a
PennKey using any ISP. For more information about the Netnews service,
