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

    This test server from News-Service.com allows up to 16 connections and apparently unlimited speed. Currently 375 days of retention and, it seems, excellent completion.

    test.news-service.com
    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.
