Sorry Dave, I jumped the gun ;-)
Gravity is showing headers but nothing is viewing, all is ok on Mrs M's system!

Will investigate.

Hey no worries, always find it handy to have Outlook Express on standby to test things like this.

Nope, Completion is rubbish again. I had a day where all was OK when server 4 was put back online now example three groups: first one 46% second 10%, third 21%!

Up until November last year usenet had been very good but since then it has been pants. Nothing has changed at my end and as I say for one day when server 4 was put back online completion was back to 95%, 97%, 98% etc...

Something is wrong.

I'm talking about the binarries and the completion rate makes them unusable, maybe that's the intention?

Just checked a group I had checked this morning and its showing 40%!

Hi,

I've had a look at a few groups, certainly something yesterday evening and overnight causing incompletes, but posts from 7am onwards seemed to look OK. Will flag it up to the network guys to have a look into, but it seems OK at the moment. Let me know if they start showing incomplete later tonight.

Hi Dave

Just seen your reply, its 7.55 am on Monday morning.

Binary groups this morning are showing, for example, 35%, 46%, 25% etc... something is not working properly. I check the groups most days so Im not trying to download week old headers.

I have no problem connecting and speed seems fine. As I said earlier, when server 4 was put back online completion was in the high 90's for about a day. I have seen the service gradually detriorate over the last couple of months.

Cheers

Is this for all of the groups that you've tried, or is it just for one or two of them?

The percentages are for groups that I have checked regulary.

For example:

Just downloaded the last (latest) 60,000 headers for alt.binaries.hdtv and that is showing 13% completion.

Just downloaded the last (latest) 40,000 headers for alt.binaries.documentaries is showing 46% completion.

cheers.

Just to add more information. I have spoken with a work mate who also uses plus net at home and the usenet service. He is seeing the same low completion rates as well.

Thanks for that. I'm looking into it at the moment, but as I don't normally download headers it's going to take me a little while to varify what's happening.
