a charge. Rather than replacing the battery, I decided to upgrade to a
new machine. My new Macbook is loaded with Big Sur, wheras my old one
has Catalina OS. To my chagrin, Big Sur does not seem to support my
newsreader, Unison (I am writing this on my constantly plugged-in old
computer). A quick web search appears to confirm this. Another nail in
the coffin of usenet?!
Options appear to include include:
1) Periodically firing up the old Mac to read and post on newsgroups
2) Hope that this is just a glitch with Big Sur and that Apple will
correct it with an upgrade
3) Search for another newsreader that is supported by Big Sur
4) Say, "Oh well. I guess that's it for usenet for me. It was a good run".
