My news reader hasn't had those news groups listed for months.  I thought 
they were long gone.  However, I checked today in the interesting.groups 
and there they were.  I checked my logs and fetchnews has been happily 
downloading new articles.  Also, ls -lc shows that the files had been 
updated as late as 13:00 today.
