The UBCSAT newsgroup has several purposes:
It is hosted at google groups. If you don't have a google account, you can still join... just request an invitation from Dave directly.
You can choose to receive emails, or there are many other feed options. Note: If you're wary of being overwhelmed, the help requests are infrequent.
You don't have to join the group to get some help, simply email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
(note: it is moderated, but only to avoid spam... so there may be a small delay before your post appears)
