i seem to lose a lot of posts... how many of you here use a web
browser-based newsreader? because I have a feeling that those are the
posts i can't read...

(i.e. i can see the replies but not the original message).

Masatomo, just a thought--your problem with seeing older posts may be
caused by your Internet provider rather than by which newsreader you use.
Some ISPs don't retain posts on their news servers for very long, and if
so it wouldn't help you to have a different newsreader.

And just to make sure we see the post before it isn't archived, your
newsreader sends it out three times!

Lorne,

Actually I was posting on my new G4 and an update on the NewsWatcher
program which I'm unfamiliar with the changes from what I'm used to.  You
got to see the results.

Congrats on your new G4!

I wish that one day I too can call my mac something more simple than
"Performa 5400"  :o)
