As of March 31 2008, my ISP's USENET feed provider ceased to exist (buyout by another company). Since that date, I no longer have any access to the USENET. Therefore, I am forced to discontinue r.g.r.a frontend on Angband.oook.cz website.

This has been on my radar for some time now.  I intend to do some
graph-plotting to visualise out how average mage spell damage compares
to reasonable combat damage through the game and adjust accordingly, but
this is some way off yet.
