Need help getting AOL friend on the newsgroup

Post by ddea » Tue, 23 Nov 1999 04:00:00



I have a friend in my quilting guild that would like to subscribe to the
newsgroup.  She's on AOL and I have no way of helping her since I don't know
AOL or her system at all.  Any AOLers out there care to take a shot at
helping her get on the newsgroup?

Thanks for your help.

Also, if she wants to read the newsgroup offline  ( instead of tying up her
phone lines),  tell her to click on the help button at the top of the AOL
screen.  Scroll down to the word newsgroups.  She will see the section called
"reading the newsgroup offline".  If she clicks on there, they'll walk her
through it , step by step.
