I have always worked 'off-line' so it doesn't bother me much at
all. If it isn't there when I call it I just shut down for a
short while and try again later.

If you can find a better 'ole go to it.

Yep ... and another this morning. Still, it's worth every cent I pay for it.

Ah ... you appear to be confusing cynics with accountants.

A cynic is ....

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who
have not got it.
- George Bernard Shaw

Cynic, n: a blackguard whose faulty vision sees things as they are, not as
they ought to be.
- Ambrose Bierce

"Cynicism" is simply a dirty word for pattern recognition.

You can't go past the free and still developed by hobbiest users GRAVITY
newsreader. Can be as powerful or as simple as you the user require and
is really dead easy even for a novice to use. I have tried many over the
years and always came back to Gravity.

Go here to get latest version http://mpgravity.sourceforge.net/

Thanks. Looks good, but it doesn't like "news.ihug.co.nz" as the server.
Any suggestions?

I used it when I was on Ihug for years. What's the problem (still using
Gravity, BTW, +1 on the suggestion, great reader).

Does Ihug still *have* a usenet server? (Searching 'ihug usenet' or
just 'usenet' on their (Vodafone's) search page returns no results.

It doesn't like (or ihug doesn't) the news server address being
news.ihug.co.nz. When I try to download newsgroups it tells me I don't
have permission to talk.

That doesn't sound like a Gravity problem. What is the exact error
message?
