I am saddened to report that with the upgrade of our forum software we will need to remove the UseNet newsgroups, which we know is a popular feature here at SatelliteGuys.US.

The reasons for the removal are two fold:

1) Some of the Usenet messages have characters which the vBulletin updater can not read and it keeps crashing the import of files to our beta site. We need to clear out all of the Usenet messages to make this import to the new software work.

2) The Usenet software for vbulletin 3.5 is not fully working on vb 3.5 yet a number of forums using it are reporting Database errors and data corruption, something we can not have.

With this said, we understand that the newsgroups are a popular feature here at SatelliteGuys.US and we will keep watch of things and will look at re adding the newsgroups to SatelliteGuys.US when the usenet to vbulletin software is stable.

The UseNet Newsgroups will be removed from SatelliteGuys on Wednesday Night.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
