    Hi everyone, Yesterday evening when I tried to access rec.bicycles.marketplace, I got an error
    message saying something like it was no longer available. When I try to do a search and
    re-subscribe, it doesn't come up in the list of available newsgroups. Is anyone else having this
    problem? I want to know whether I've mucked something up on my machine or if something is down outh
    there somewhere. TIA Lyle

    Try reloading your groups list. Sometimes a group seems to disappear, but reloading the groups list
    usually fixes this. Outlook Express seems to do this a lot.

    In general, it's all or nothing with newsgroups. Either all the ones your server carries are
    available, or none -- except for moderated groups, which can have other problems. The only moderated
    rec.bicycles group is rec.bicycles.off-road (and it seems to have a lot of those "other problems").
