Tue Jul 29 18:33:41 PDT 2003 — We are seeing some times when all connections to the NNTP server supernews.sonic.net are in use. Customers are reminded to please only maintain one connection at a time to this server; do not open multiple connections, as the available streams must be shared by other customers.
In addition, we offer two other news servers, news.sonic.net, which is best for text, and altnews.sonic.net which has un-capped speed – it’s faster than Supernews!
In summary, our preferred NNTP news server for non-text content is altnews.sonic.net due to it’s speed and large number of available ports. -Dane
