    Still suffering propagation problems. Please post a brief reply if you
    see this.

    Wow! The first non-Boeing response in a couple of weeks. Can others see
    my messages too?

    Great, thanks! I'm becoming cautiously optimistic that the problem is
    resolved, and I can stop cross-posting to my long-suffering friends over
    in alt.fan.tom-servo.

  7. I'm seeing them. This one and the thread-starter. I don't show any other
    posts from you in the past few weeks.

    Reminds me of one of my previous ISPs. I was using them for about a week
    before I realized that nobody was replying to any of my usenet posts,
    and the Google archive didn't contain them. Tech support did a few
    things (over the 3 or 4 times I called in to report the problem):

    1) Posted a message of their own, and claimed it worked. Well, yeah, it
    *seems* to work as long as you don't try very hard to determine whether
    it really did or not.

    2) Emailed me to tell me the problem was fixed. It wasn't, of course.

    3) Told me to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to the groups I was posting
    to. Of course, "subscribing" is a concept that applies to Usenet
    clients, not newfeeds or Usenet as a whole. I can post a message via
    TELNET if I want to. In fact I did, and it still didn't go through.

    I also searched the Google archives for posts from their server, and
    found that all posting from that server had stopped about 8 months
    earlier. Yay for ISP incompetence.

    Only a few. All of Boeing has had this problem, the IT guys have been
    working it with the hosting company.
    That's what we had. One of the of the most insidious errors, because the
    users can't really tell. The messages are on the local server, but never
    make it out.

    This applied to all of our non-alt groups. The alt groups have a
    separate provider, so I could sneaks posts out via cross-post to an alt

    Looks like, after nearly three weeks, they may fixed it. Yay.

    I see you on my California server. But you did seem
    to have 'gone missing' for a while. I almost called
    Jack Malone. :)

  11. And what if he doesn't?
