    Can someone please tell me why I can't find nz.general on the
    news.clear.net.nz server after doing a clean reinstall on my computer. All
    others appear to be there.
    Phoned Clearnet, and got someone who barely spoke english, who kept telling
    me how to add a new news account. Then he checked with someone else, and
    came back and said I need to "add it, as they don't support that one". Then
    realised he's still going on about adding a news account, still.
    Dammit, it was there before. I'm not willing to spend another half hour
    queing on hold to get the same person. Any suggestions, please?

    You should download the newsgroup list again... I can see nz.general in
    Outlook Express, and has been there for a while since the news nntp server
    start for paradise users...
