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.

If I could have had one wish for the next release, this would have been
it.  Thanks.

I might miss the haggling sometimes.

Thank You!

Good Idea.  I'm glad someone thought of it.

Damn.  I used to really enjoy taking my frustrations out on shopkeepers
this way.
