The Tokyo PC Users Group Newsgroups (NG's) are a public forum provided for
guests, and site visitors to discuss issues, find help and resources on a
variety of topics about computing and life in general.
The newsgroups are not moderated. We expect that the membership will
not act boorish, and that as guest posters, you will also respect and
