I would recommend that you direct your attention to "SIFT Netnews Server"
which is the Stanford Netnews Filtering Service. The URL to access it
though Mosaic is
and it will allow you to construct filters to search Usenet on a regular
basis for keywords of your choice,and you recieve a synopsis of the
hits via e-mail for you to persue.
Very neat and worthwhile... give it a try.
