Just letting you all know we're working on the frustrating and increasingly frequent "Load at xx.xx, try again later" errors when reading this forum through NNTP. They are caused by a significant growth spurt in newsgroup readership that occurred in recent times. We are working with our provider to fix these issues.

Thanks,

Andrei

Ah cool. That was annoying enough, but the worst offenders were the errors when posting from the web interface.

I've learned years ago to never trust a web page or a browser. I always type inside the Emacs *scratch* buffer and then copy and paste from there to the browser window. (I did it again! :) Actually no, this is a Thunderbird window, but still...)

Or just use a sane email client like Mutt and subscribe to the mailing list instead. :-)

Youch. I didn't realize that was happening. I post from Thunderbird, and if it fails you just try it again.

Anyhow, thanks to Jan Knepper for hosting us and figuring out a solution.

I use Thunderbird too, and one of my messages actually *did* get lost. I wrote the message, hit send, and then right after it "finished" sending the message, an NG error popped up and the message was lost.

As far as I can see, Thunderbird doesn't save sent NNTP messages anywhere unless you explicitly tell it to. :(

For the record: forum.dlang.org doesn't do this.

That's one of the reasons I avoid web-based things whenever possible.
