I read the mailing lists from many different locations. I don't
keep complete Usenet and mailing-list archives at all machines
and locations. It doesn't really matter to me where the server
is -- if I've no network access, I can't read Usenet or mailing
lists. But, it's just not an issue.

I guess I just have no interest in keeping archives of 50
newsgroups/mailing-lists on a handful of different machines.
Any "servers" I set up would be a lot less reliable and
accessible than those at either Gmane or my Usenet provider.
