Re: [News Groups] Charter Newsgroups

Just got off the phone with Charter, service ended here (upstate SC) on 11/15. Charter no longer provides newsgroups. I kept getting the 480 authentication error. Sad to see it go. Any recommendations? As I dont have other source.

Yeah, we lost our newsgroups a few days ago, too, here in northwest lower Michigan. Guess i'll have to pay for them again.

OK! Tried again today and no joy. Its gone!

Yesterday did research on paid newsnet sites and tried Newsdemon. Seven day free trial at $9.99/month for a hole-lota gigabytes. I normally track 11 groups each week on Saturdays and perhaps download 1.5 megabytes, (2 to 3 files) a week. and demon offers blocks of 2 to 200 gb which must be used in a year and can be renewed.

After trying News Rover, their reader, and then NewsBin which I have used before, neither of which worked well, I loaded the server info into my standby, GrabIt. I down loaded my 11 groups and began updating the groups and about half-way through 30 days of headers it froze and gave me a 502 (Over Cap) error code.

For the amount I down load, free (Charter) or (block) is great. Guess I gota keep searchin searchin.
