RRC's using AOL

Post by DJMH » Sun, 03 May 1998 04:00:00


Hi all,

I just wanted to say that I fell sorry for the people the use AOL for RRC.  I
am sure that this has been brought up before.  But I got an internet account
through school and now I can read about 50 more posts for each day!!!!  It is
unbeliveable.  How come I can read more messages with my Network News through
CSU than I can with AOL"s newsgroups?

I noticed the same thing when I switched from AOL.  I used to get about 100
messages a day, where as now I get more like 200 (as well as decipherable
messages, no busy signals, A LOT less broken threads, etc...) <--I could go
on for hours!  :c)
              (AOL users should be able to read this fine!)

RRC's using AOL

I use several Inet services, Erols, a local service called Net-Quest, and I
sign onto AOL after signing onto those through AOLs "bring your own access".  I
mostly use AOL to post sense my web space is on AOL.  I check RRC about 4 times
a day at least.  I have seen around 60 to 100 posts at a time.  The days I or
weekends I travel to "other" parks  when I get back I check RRC and I see about
300 to 400 post stacked up.  So I think they are getting through just fine.
I see no difference between AOL and Erols servers for RRC.

It probably just takes longer to get thru to AOL. Im curious as to what
the average is... RRC is the busiest newsgroup I read. Sometimes it is
too large. Lately ive been seeing 250-300 message per day.

What's this about "getting thru" on AOL?  I haven't heard a busy signal in
three months.
