Has there been some strange issue with the newsgroup lately?  Frequently,  
I'm getting load errors (I assume this means the NG load is too large to  
deal with my communication).

It seems to be happening daily...

It's the same for everyone because it's a problem of the newsgroup server, not the client. I guess the server(s) needs more CPU running in parallel to reduce load.

Could it be the cause of frequent Thunderbird freezes? I can't tell because I only started using it for the newsgroup a few weeks ago.

You could use the web interface to the newsgroup when you see the lockup and check if that loads or displays an error message about some load factor

It does. BTW, this problem really makes me want to avoid the newsgroup... I get no indication from my newsreader when it's "working", only when it's broken. So as a consequence, if I want to send a message or read messages, I have to keep polling to see if it works. This seems like an artificial problem, does anyone know what the cause is? -Steve

Yes, I've also had the same error in the last few days...maybe we can have a mirror (that is sync'd regularly)? ~filgood
