Usenet Newsgroups

Usenet Newsgroups

You can think of Usenet as a worldwide bulletin board system, where people from everywhere can post messages and join discussions about subjects that interest them. Each subject is called a newsgroup. At last count, there were more than 80,000 newsgroups, covering virtually every subject you can imagine. Naturally, we're interested here in the few newsgroups that are devoted to JavaScript.

The main Usenet newsgroup for JavaScript is news:comp.lang.javascript, where there are many discussions about scripting, people asking questions about problems that have them stymied, and general talk among JavaScript developers. It's a good place to get answers and pick up tips, as shown in Figure D.10 . Within the newsgroup, there are different discussion topics, or threads. You'll often find that threads begun by other people will apply to your own questions.
