Alt.binaries is one of the hierarchies of alternative newsgroups. Newsgroups are separated into specific interests. The "Alt" newsgroups are rarely moderated, so anyone can join and post to the group. The groups are accessible through news servers and the posts are downloaded through a news reader or client. Some Internet providers allow limited access to a news server. To get full access, you can sign up with a paid news server.
