Re: Anybody else lost Giganews?

Never heard of it but if you mean giganews.com then it's working fine for me.

Yes I meant giganews.com (www.giganews.com and news-europe.giganews.com) were both timing out on me for quite a while before I posted . They are now responding again.

Our own Usenet feed is provided by Giganews and I've not seen any complaints in our feedback groups.

Re: Anybody else lost Giganews?

Thanks for the response Bob. My web browser was timing out trying to connect to www.giganews.com and Agent was giving up after 6 tries to connect to the news server. After about half an hour,  I raised a ticket with Giganews who were similarly unaware of any problems but then in the meantime something somewhere started responding again and I'm back to normal now - 'fraid I was at the back of the queue when they handed patience out  Roll_eyes
