rec.sport*

rec.sport.baseball.analysis. This archive is frustrating. The r.s.b people generally are quite sober and careful, but the index to this archive is essentially useless. The only way I've found to use the archive is to download its entire contents, and search for particular articles locally. Grrr.

rec.sport.cricket

rec.sport.orienteering

rec.video.satellite

rec.woodworking The maintainer of this archive selects very few articles for inclusion.
