    Recently I noticed that 8 out of the 11 newsgroups that I subscribe to no
    longer show new postings for up to a day after they have been sent, after
    which anything up to a dozen are received at the same time. I also have
    begun to get the "Servor not found" message on a regular basis. This does
    not effect the "24hours support.helpdesk"!!! Is there a logical explanation.
    have I not set up everything correctly (new computer with win98), or is it
    part coincidance and my imagination?

    Hi

    Have you contacted your ISP to see if they are having news server
    problems?

    Sounds like a VERY flaky server to me. As another poster suggested, a call
    to your ISP is in order ... either that, or find another server.
