Default Plusnet 48hrs and counting

Got the message below using usenet on plusnet.

Very light usage IMO (50 newsgroup msgs per day approx)

I asked plusnet 48 hours ago to explain.


Frankly couldn't care now @ end of years contract I'm off!

That's a standard error message from Diablo news server software.
It just means that you have too many open connections to the news
server. Check with plusnet to see what the maximum number of
concurrent connections is. Outlook express sometimes doesn't close
connections properly so you can be left with several open
connections until the server times them out.

That may be, but in this case it means that the PlusNet usenet server
is broken. It has been for the last couple of weeks. Currently, the
headers are messed-up and one of disk arrays has just been repaired.
