Exactly...and the jmsnews pieces are stored off usenet proper on a server of
its own, all gathered in one place, as opposed to Google, which browses through
all that's out there. The jmsnews segments/archives aren't google'd, you have
to go in onto the server where they've been placed/moved to access them.
