    If article is not found the problem is with your news providers retention. They have ditched the article before you had time to download it. Solution is to sign up with a decent newsserver. Cost money but easy on the heart
    Life in the fast lane usenet freak

    You will not miss anything if you woth Newshosting, Giganews or another provider.

    SSL (copied from Giganews):
    # What is SSL?

    SSL stands for 'Secure Socket Layer' protocol. SSL provides a confidential link between the server (Giganews) and the computer communicating with the server, the client. When the connection between a server and a client is made using SSL, the information sent back and forth along that connection is protected from being seen or intercepted by others through encryption (a secret code only known by Giganews and your computer).

    256 Bit SSL is the same type of security that banks, retail websites, and credit card companies use to allow their customers to safely and securely access their private account information and make payments online.

    SSL over NNTP (Usenet) encrypts all the data being sent between Giganews and your computer including your username and password, article data, and header data. 256 bit SSL encryption can also aid in circumventing artificial bandwidth limits and help protect against identity theft.

    Many use them and is satisfied with that. I don't use them cause I don't max my connection with them. It depends on where you live I guess.

    Just try them for 3 days or something and check it out.

    Giganews got a 10GB trial thingie you can test too.
