Title: "Improvements to Newsgroup service"

From Wednesday 22nd March 2006 we will be changing to a new newsgroup
service. From that date you will see an increase in the number of newsgroups
available (e.g. from about 40,000 to over 100,000 newsgroups) and longer
article retention time. Speed improvements are also likely, depending on
time of day and download size. If you download multipart binarys you should
also see improvements.

Typical retention rates will be increased to:
* ~62 days in multi-part binary newsgroups
* ~62 days in single-part binary newsgroups
* 987 days in text newsgroups
* 99%+ completion rate

You do not need to change any settings in your newsgroup reader (e.g.
Outlook Express). You should only see an improvement in service. Because of
the increased retention time, you may see many more unread messages from
previous weeks.

There have been a few issues, like hundreds or thousands of posts in
subscribed groups being downloaded again. It didn't quite go as smoothly as
they said it would in their announcement
