No, that's notesfiles, which looked nicer but had some internal limitations compared to software that used native news formats.

When I visited the site, the first thing it showed was a message that I personally posted to net.unix-wizards 30 years ago. Yow.

R's, John

There's some kind of AI logic in there: I got the first issue of the Telecom Digest, from 1981.

The "notesfiles" interface has a sidebar "feature" that give other posts to look at in other groups, but if you click on one, it opens that post in the /sidebar/, not the main window, with about twenty characters per line. I don't know what they called the program back then, but I know that I've used it before, because I remember that annoying habit it has of opening post in the sidebar.
