2019 here... I'm quite confused by all this but am trying to learn. If you're reading this though, buy Bitcoin SV.

Fixed the link.

I think the pun is that olduse.net makes use of olds, as in old data.

The other possible joke is that olduse.com is a porn site of a very specific genre.

Podcast link is broken. Can you explain the pun? Is it more than just "Old Usenet"? English is not my first language.

My first two email addresses were pur-ee!jm (late 70's) and tekadg!jm (1980) and my usenet posts can still be found (i.e. Homebrew Digest, search for "New Peculier"). Prompted by the periodic discussions I often have with younger engineers who believe that the Internet & DNS have always been there, I went searching for the old maps we used to print out and hang on the wall so we would know how to route our communications. I clicked on several sites and found one, intelqa, whose entry was written my an old college chum of mine (I can say chum because we are old now). I sent it to him. A blast from the past. Thanks for keeping this out there, to be stumbled over.

Thanks for the special mention - and, oh the days of USENET-over-UUCP... :)

Someone found the missing file and got it to run on a modern system!
