Xtra news-server problems

    For the last several weeks I have been experiencing problems
    downloading headers and news groups from Xtra (Auckland). It keeps
    crashing and giving me weird errors such as the most recent:

    "ricing system, unlike anything else on the internet"

    .... or one of the earlier ones:

    "not sure what it means"

    It seems to be some kind of buffer overrun or indexing problem on the
    local news server. A while ago I had similar problems when faced with
    downloading some 250 emails (I'd been away). Has anyone else been
    experiencing similar problems?

    Perhaps you could see if it is your client. Checked for an update? I use
    Xnews myself.

    Its the latest brand-new version. Apart from that, I never had this
    problem before I left Iprolink to go to Xtra.

    Before you ask, I left Iprolink only because they were taken over by
    Compass Communications which company has an unbelievably bad news
