    Yes, but it's been having rather too many of these little rests in the
    last few weeks.

    I'm getting infinitely more value than I'm paying for, though.

    How about you?

    You get what you pay for.
    Remind me again how much a month you pay for it, would you?

    You are talking to Roger Sheppard, the well known internet cretin with over 200

    This is just the latest.

    Ditto, couldn't connect at all yesterday. Got through today but it asked
    me for my username and password first up ... then asked me for my
    password again a few minutes ago.

    But it's free, so we get what we pay for. :eek:)

    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.

    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
