I have been speaking to my sysop and others for a year, but we have a number
of problems.  Among the questions is the disk space required by a usenet feed.
We currently have few Internet users on-site, so the powers-that-be feel that
e-mail for the few of us would use less space than the feed.  I'd appreciate
some feedback:  1) What kind of expiration periods are common?  2) How much disk
space is used by a typical usenet site?  (I assume we'd not be subscribing to
many of the groups, (.alt, etc?) but since I've never seen usenet, I'm not sure 
what's out there or what the volume is.)

Thanks, Bill
