Newsdemon Newsgroups Usenet Trivia – June 20th

By Newsgroup Usenet June 20th, 2008

Today’s Question:  A bit of a tough one today: The Network News Transfer Protocol allows traffic generated by Usenet to be natively routed over TCP/IP. This was not always the case. What Year was this protocol released?

The FIRST person to reply to the following email address with the correct answer PLUS their Name, City, State, and Country will be declared the winner. The winner will receive a free month of Newsdemon.com Usenet Access! Only the FIRST CORRECT email we receive at [email protected] with the user’s real information will be considered. We will announce the winner within 24 hours of posting the Trivia Question. If you submit an answer and do not hear back from us, then you are not the winner. We will post the winners first name, last initial, city, and country on the blog IN THE COMMENTS section of this post after we have emailed the winner. 


 
  1. We have a winner!
    J. Loreman from WI was the first to respond with the correct answer.

    The protocol was released in 1985 and is still used today.
