    yesterday and neither message appeared.

    There's no problem I can see on SED, just SEM & SEC - 1 of 2 posts to
    alt.test took a couple of days to appear, the other didn't.

    You wouldn't have an Earthlink account would you?

    About that time they announced a "new, improved Newsgroup Service" which
    blocked all messages past about that date. Then I found out they'd changed
    the name of the Newsgroup Server without mentioning it in the message or in
    the Help files at their support site. Since I don't use their software to
    connect with they probably had the changeover happen automatically in it.
    But after giving me the wrong one their Help Desk people finally came
    through. Let me know if you want it.

    Sorry, never heard of earthlink, probabaly an al qaida subsidiary
    (cia/halliburp_something?).

    I use individual.net, based at a german university, at 10€ a year, not
    month :)

    It's been down for much less than a day in the last 2 years, but it
    don't do binaries, which doesnt affect me

    Saves all the hassle with "customised in house ISP newsi-fiers servers
    with added antihormones"

    It's a fucking briiliant server

  7. I posted several messages about the changeover from the old
    'Earthlink' news server farm, to the 'Supernews' news server farm,
    including the new server names last month, before the change.
