    EDIT: the test period has ended, and the login no longer works.

    This test server from allows up to 16 connections and apparently unlimited speed. Currently 375 days of retention and, it seems, excellent completion.
    port 119
    (no username/password)

    For anyone thinking "It's useless to me, I already pay for an unlimited account at Giganews" - don't forget that in most newsreaders you can also set up backup servers to fill in missing articles or headers.

    Enjoy it while it lasts.

    An Excerpt from: A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace
    by John Perry Barlow
    Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather [...] I declare the global social space we are building to be naturally independent of the tyrannies you seek to impose on us.

    I don't use newsgroups as much as I torrent, but from what you've posted, this looks amazing for a free service... thanks, zot!

    Be warned - after downloading some perfect files, I discovered that this test server can have a LOT of incompletes on other files.

    By comparison, Blocknews had 100% completion on this particular month-old file. (So it might not be a bad idea to configure a backup server.)

    I'm not complaining. Not at all. I believe that any test server THIS BAD will probably not be taken out of test status and put up for subscribers any time soon. So leech away.
