ARRGGHHH!

Something's wrong with Usenet today (or maybe my computer). I'm using Netscape Communicator 4.8 (running under WinXP), and all afternoon it has been quitting unexpectedly. No warning, no error, no "Do you want to send an error report?" (which it always used to give me), it just suddenly wouldn't be there. I was able to check my email and most newsgroups in fits and starts, but when I started to work through rasfw, my newsserver (news.motzarella.org) started lagging, and then shut down completely (it's been timing out trying to connect for hours now).

Anyone else been having trouble today? I eventually tried Thunderbird (though I never got it to install properly), but that was after the newsserver stopped responding. Hmm, maybe I should try a traceroute too... okay, it's getting lost somewhere in Germany?!?
