I recognise that nickname! :-) I left bigpond when Telstra wanted to
charge me $250 for a cable modem. It cost less to buy an ADSL modem and
pay the connection fee, so off I went. The news server here at Westnet
has porblems form time to time, but it's their newsfeed usually, not
their server itself. I left bigpong when they were making excuses for
their email and news problems for weeks and months.
I'll prolly do the same if my modem dies.
