For anyone using news.cis.dfn.de you may need to switch the server to News.Individual.NET as they
have split their services.

Same username and password should work.

Thanks. I was wondering what was happening. I use it as a backupserver in case my regular server is
down, which happens on occasion.

Thanks, Coyote ! I wondered what was going on when it wouldn't recognise my account today. Just
assumed they were down for maintenance.

You're right. Same account and password. Easy as pie and faster than a Flying Coyote :)

(how fast is a flying coyote anyway?)

Thanks for the heads-up but anyone using that (and had the old settings) wouldnt be able to read
your post until they had fixed it.

Unless they use google at work or something.

Hell, Im bored, and just nit-picking :)

Just curious...how did you guys use Usenet to figure out why your Usenet account wasn't working?

I just did a quick Google search to find out what was going on.

If you read my previous posts you will see that I use this individual.net thing as a backup
Newsserver. That means I was viewing Usenet through my other Newsserver that my ISP supplies me
with. If both would be down Google is an alternative.

I use news.cis.dfn.de because my RoadRunner news server is out of service so much and has less
retention than I do. But it still makes a good backup.

I was assuming people would either have, or find, alternate means of getting here and then see my
post. :) Especially since most people here using the server in question know about it because of
other people here who have shared the information.

I use the news.cis.dfn.de (now news.individual.net) as a primary, and pacbell as a secondary.

news.individual.net, or ill force feed you a can of my home-made whoopass!'

Yup! Part way through yesterday, my posts stopped going through. Luckily, it told me what I needed
to know in the error message. Just right click on the
n/g's folder 'news.cis.dfn.de', properties, then change anywhere it says 'news.cis.dfn.de' to
'news.individual.net' and click apply.

Because the error message I got when I tried to send a post said 'try news.individual.net, or
news.individual.de' is how!

Without that, I'da been a bit stumped, heheheheh...

I didn't get that much. I just kept getting the pop-up window asking for my password. I had to send
an email to verify I was using the same password. My request was quickly answered with three
different emails explaining what had happend.

That's all I got too. So I went to the cis.dfn.de website to see if there were any outages posted
and saw they had split out the server names. Not too hard, really.

slrn just sort of crapped out and said it couldn't log in. I did a quick Google search and basically
got where you went. As you say, not too hard.

I thought about posting an alert, but didn't see much point in telling people on Usenet that their
Usenet account would be dead. I never considered the possibility that anyone would care enough about
Usenet to want a backup server!
