Alternatives to this list?

I can only read email through websites, so everything that
people don't like about web boards applies to me and email
lists.  It's taken me all afternoon and evening just to 
catch up with this list (through a dailup connection while
downloading a bunch of stuff in the background).

I really like newsgroups for discussions like this; does
anybody know what resources are needed for a non-propagating
newsserver like sff.net has?  For that matter, news.sff.net 
has personal newsgroups for a bunch of authors (and some
editors and possibly others) so Brust could do try that
(though it looks like he'd have to pay some sort of 
membership fee or something).  But that would be downright
ideal for me, personally.
