Since "500 Internal Server Error" could be showing up for a long time, perhaps the URLs that start with "http://www.digitalmars.com/drn-bin/wwwnews" should redirect to a simple page mentioning that the problem is being worked on, but in the meantime people will need to use an actual newsreader and offer a link to http://www.digitalmars.com/NewsGroup.html.

(I don't really know how the how the web interface works. But I suppose if running it on a 32-bit machine were an option, you would've already done that.)

For those that are truly desperate for news about D but lack newsgroup access, recent D-related posts can be viewed from http://lists.puremagic.com/mailman/listinfo.

Working on a replacement of that system. There are several web based systems out there. It just a matter of finding one that fits. The newsguy stuff was great and it was free.

Thanks!
Jan

I am not sure that there is anything I could do to prevent this at this moment.

No thank you! with the transfer you've managed to squash that article numbering bug that left an unread article count even after all articles had been read in the groups, finally it tells the truth. None of the problem you mention with thunderbird are experienced in OE 5.5SP2... was nice to watch the unread count drop to zero just by selecting the newsgroup on the in-active newsgroups for a change:-)

The problems in Thunderbird (if any) are because I hit the server in between (before I fixed that numbering problem) I think.
It can be easily solved by stopping Thunderbird, removing the files from disk and restarting Thunderbird and downloading the articles again. NP to do that with Thunderbird.

Hello,

This webpage is nice, but it looks worse than the old forums (which are no longer functional). One cannot view the postings grouped by thread, and cannot use the mouse to select & copy the text from postings.

I wanted to kindly ask you to fix these issues, if you have the time...


Thanks,
Adder

Jan,

is there any way that I can set setting on the reply screen?  It's tough to keep typing the email and name all the time.

thanks.
