• New Scan issues

    If you try downloading a QWK packet and it hangs while building the packet, check out any usenet groups that you're subscribed to. My news provider has recently re-indexed some of their groups, which messes with the newscan pointers.

    Just this morning, I had 11,000 new messages downloading in alt.battlestar-galactica.

    If you experience this, just force the newscan pointers to a reasonable point by reading the messages locally before downloading a packet.
