Quick route to posting?

I use Google to post. Causes me lots of problems. Very slow, & more importantly, frequently gives me errors & rejects input. As I keep forgetting not to trust it, I don't copy before pressing send.

I've then lost the text, so I then go sulk without ever re-entering the message .....

Think some folk know how to post faster / more reliably. Any (polite) advice?

Why not use Outlook Express?

I know it's much frowned upon by the cognoscenti (that's for Martin) but it works for me, with relatively few problems (apart from GIGO trouble :-).

If your ISP carries uk.rec.engines.stationary it's got to be an easy route.

Failing that I think Paul has a route in from

I agree with your other post about the barbs, though I think the general ambience is rather more welcoming here.

I tried Google groups while changing over to ADSL, but found it terribly slow to update anything put on the group, while easynet tended to be almost instantaneous, as is BT's own group which I use at home but not here which is still on dial-up to Easynet.

There doesn't seem to be a happy medium, the German server seems to be a problem for some, perhaps you could try that?

Kind regards,

Berlin University gives a free non binary news service.

Should you also require access to binary groups, Clara do various packages which are priced according to the amount of bandwidth used.

Note: both services can be accessed from any service provider.

I use Outlook Express 6 and News.CIS.DFN.DE. This worked fine both before during and after Broadband.

I recommend it as it is invisible, just another entry in the OE6 file options column.

Now would we give any other sort of advice? I also use Outlook Express both at work and home where I'm still without broadband. Works a treat at both locations.
