I don't know if someone was working on the NNTP server this 
morning, but it was really, really bad for a couple of minutes. I 
got "XHR error" and nothing else. Then it wen't back to normal.

I've gotta say... These have been a lot more frequent for me since you 
posted this message!

For me it stopped shortly after this message, but then it started 
happening one or two days ago.

I'm seeing some interesting new behavior:

I still get the error condition (quite frequently today) -- but opera  
still fetches messages.  I'm not sure if this is good or bad :)

I can barely make contact with the newsgroup server at this point... any 
news on upping the server capacity?

Still here.
My observation is that there were 2 problems.
One usually involved some nonsense like with 4 digit numbers "in-watch 
load 20xx gt 2000" (or simillar) - it is now seemingly gone.

Second one shows XX.X number which I derive for load factor (num of 
processes in queue / num of CPUS).

Doubtful conclusion: configuration is fixed, resources are not there yet(?).

The idea that any reasonably-sized machine shouldn't be able to 
run a fairly small newsgroup server these days still strikes me 
as odd, though…

I wonder if something like this will be more painful?
