    Movement Identification Help

    Howard Banta Alarm Clock Chapter 178 - Unresponsive

    Does anybody know the status of this group? I've tried to join and get subscribed to their newsgroup but they have been totally unresponsive so I assume it's no longer valid? Can somebody confirm? Is there another place for us Alarm Clock folks? Also is there a newsgroup, or chapter just for...
