This is my first attempt at trying to build a Wiki-like knowledge base on top of the Flutterby content management system.

This is a place for explanation, description and static links on a topic that's either too broad to be covered under a single link, or that you're just too lazy to find the real link to.

NNTP is the Network News Transfer Protocol. It's the backbone for "Usenet", which is what Google Groups searches, but it's also a reasonably time-tested protocol for moving messages with expiration dates and updates around.

Defined in RFC 977[Wiki] and RFC 2980[Wiki]
