Well,

I hate to say it, but I officially scrapped XNEWS. It just couldn't handle 30 days of headers! It got to the point where it would lock up trying to get the headers for alt.binaries.dvd. I am not experimenting with Newsbin Pro.

What are you guys using now?

I also had to upgrade my giganews account to "unlimited"

:evil :drool :flex

Well, I use Xnews cause I don't get into the newsies much anymore. Insight's newsgroups have a retention time of about 15 minutes, :P and I don't feel like paying for any service right now.

Ditto on that. Even with 2 gigs of RAM Xnews craps sometimes.

I'm also experimenting with Newsbin.

And yes I upped my account to the unlimited a couple months ago. :P
