Our public newsgroup server crashed on August 7th. Repeated attempts to restart it have resulted in it quickly crashing again.
Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience and annoyance of this unscheduled outage, and the awkward transition to our new discussion server caused by this hardware failure.

Because our NNTP access rules have changed, please spread the word about the new server to any friends you have who frequent our NNTP newsgroups so they can join back in to the conversations.
Thank you very much for your patience and understanding during this premature transition.
