If you post a question with CodeWarrior or Metrowerks or CW or MW in the
subject title I will find it and read it and pass this on to our
We have codewarrior.embedded and codewarrior.embedded.hiware newsgroups
as well as other codewarrior newsgroups.
These are hosted on the supernews.com server and are public and are not
monitored newsgroups. You should be able to ask your ISP provider to
carry these newsgroups. There are many newsgroups available and most
providers will not subscribe to them unless specifically asked.
I looked at www.newsville.com and they only carry about half the
newsgroups available but you can request them.
Here are some other options for you if you news provider will not add
the codewarrior.* hierarchy of newsgroups
http://newsone.net/ Carries some of the codewarrior groups, mac, palm
and windows, you can request others. Web based, it is free
Includes all of the codewarrior.* hiearchy Web based, it is free
http://newsguy.com/ has a small fee but is not web hosted
http://www.supernews.net/ has a small fee but is not web hosted
Hope this helps.
