    Hey everyone,

    As you can see, we're rapidly reaching the green light on our integration of two usenet forums:


    on our site here at pf. You'll also notice that not all of it is working perfectly just yet! So please bear with us. sci.physics.strings will not be receiving news for another day or two, because it's a new group and our news server has not begun carrying it yet.

    sci.physics.research is now receiving news.

    We've also built in a heuristic latex parser into the system, so that math posted on the usenet (even without [ tex ] tags and so on) will be found and parsed. It's far from perfect, at least at the moment, so please excuse any of the wacky things it might do!

    Greg is to physics as Microsoft is to software.

    is it legitimate to use the usenet forums in here?
    is it ok with those who are in charge of these forums?
    i've just wondered about this issue of legality.
