In my case, it seems wasteful to use a newsreader just to check the D
ngs. I do everything from my browser except checking these newsgroups. I
check all of my email accounts through gmail, I visit half a dozen
programming forums, I check reddit for interesting stuff, and so on. If
it weren't for these D newsgroups, I'd have no reason to open
In fact, before picking up D I hadn't used a newsgroup reader in years
and didn't miss it a bit.
