I can't connect to the IS news server? I have pinged it and it appears to be up.

I haven't been able to connect to it for a while, but I also haven't tried for a while.
Would also like to hear if anyone can connect to it from cisp.

I think it got flooded after all the paid for usenet servers couldn't be reached, so IS took it down?

Oh dear, we are looking at the possibility of hosting our own. But nothing in stone as yet.
