      Nope, it's not that one I should clarify that by news server I mean internet newsgroups... I thought that Sky BB might have one of their own. Anyone?

      heh - seems we all started to reply at the same time. Thanks for the tip; I've found a public news server that seems good enough

      reader.news.newnet.co.uk - covers a fair slice of Usenet... around 62,000 groups, including binary content and is thus eminently useable.

      I used that a long time ago. Found article retention was in the second region tho.

      Hopefully they'll have fixed it by now.
