We are aware of the issues we are currently having with NNTP authentication and also with the members area. It seems to be due to a power outage. We are currently investigating the problem. Thank you for your patience.

Massive local retention upgrade. Expect >365 days!
Oh no, it keeps growing!  Posted on Mar 15, 2018 12:00 -0400
We’ve been quietly working in the background to massively expand our local retention. With this upgrade we expect well over a year of retention. We’re also tweaking our erasure coding settings and will probably squeeze out another 10-20% of usable storage space when done. In addition, we plan to double our raw space again before we’re at capacity so that we can continue to grow our retention. To celebrate, we’re offering our yearly unlimited account for only $43.
Speed issues
Bad network card caused speed issues  Posted on Feb 14, 2018 12:00 -0400

We’ve have multiple reports of customers experiencing speed issues over the last 8 hours. After some investigation we located a bad network card in one of our front-end (customer facing) servers. We’ve removed this server from the cluster until a replacement card is installed. In addition, our instrumentation/monitoring has been adjusted to detect this issue much faster. All customer speeds should be back to normal at this time.
