    Unless it is an ISP provider, I don't think you can post on any of the free servers.

    Text messages mabye....binaries, I doubt it. But you probably would not want to post binaries on a server run by an ISP anyway.

    I use to have PowerUsenet, I recently switched to UseNetServer because to the 101 day retention vs. the 55 of PowerUsenet, both being priced the same. What I didn't expect was the increase in overall speed. Depending on the time of day PowerUsenet's download speed would vary GREATLY. I mistakenly contributed this to congestion on my ISP's network... WRONG! It was all PowerUsenet.

    In short, since the switch I am pulling in a steady 13mbs (my connection's advertised speed is only 10mbs) at all times of the day. And I now have SSL encryption, the ability to post, and 101 days of retention.

    It maybe time to consider a new Usenet provider. PowerUsenet is really falling behind the times.

    Just my two cents.

    Define 'free'. As has been pointed out before, the 'best' way to post (essentially forever) is to utilize a cheap 'block' account that you never actually d/l from. The number of providers that offer such has dropped to just a handfull over the last few years, but there are some decent (good forwarding, i.e. good peering to major providers like Giganews, Newshosting, ect.), like Astraweb, Octanews, Newsdome, and Usenet-news. I have one Astraweb account that's been 'active' for over 7 years, was a few gigs, is still a few gigs, only d/l use has been text. U/l is a different matter.

    I think one of the major newsgroup servers should allow free unlimited posting with no speed limits, it would increase content available not to mention theres probably alot of people with fast connections that would upload to usenet, if they didnt have to pay.
