:Is anyone else reading the lists through the news gateway?  If so, has 
:it also been quite slow the last few days for you?
:It generally takes 30-40 seconds to pull each article up on my end.  At 
:first, I figured it was related to the work Matt was doing, but now that 
:it's done... hm.

    It should be instantanious.  Try telneting directly to the nntp port
    (119) on nntp.dragonflybsd.org and issuing a few commands manually.

idiom:/home/dillon> telnet nntp.dragonflybsd.org 119

    If that goes fast then try going through your normal program, but
    perhaps run a ktrace on it to see where or why it is stalling, and/or
    a tcpdump to observe the network traffic on the port while it is running,
    to try to figure out where the latency is occuring.
