It's a bit annoying and seems to happenn often from what i can see. Then a few hours later access is restored. It's been like this for years even under borland I used to see this - and using different computers and internet connections.

So am I completely nuts or is there a reason for the news servers keep being offline?

I cannot comment on you being "completely nuts" [ ;-) ] but I,
personally have never encountered the issue you see. (???) I live in
the SF Bay Area, California, USA. Perhaps it's a geographical issue.
Where do you reside?

I am also from Europe and have trouble connecting to the server maybe
once in a 4-6 months period. For me after the last reinstall of the
server the forum is working correctly.

Server glitches right now:
- if I post via newsreader (XanaNews) I see no result and I don't see
my message;
- if I post via browser (Opera) I see (from time to time) a message
about of error in java script on server but message eventually appears
in forum ...

I see this behaviour last 3-4 days.

Very strange.

I use XN 1.20 (SF Bay Area, California, USA) and I haven't had any
issues/problems for quite a while. 'Tis a bit of a mystery. (???)

See
https://forums.embarcadero.com/thread.jspa?messageID=923742&tstart=0#923742

- my posts (and not mine only) have unexpected duplicates;
- XN does not show them and I have to use (very inconvenient) http
interface in browser;
- also I don't see ansvers from original poster in XN (except of the
last one).

Usual trick (unsubscribe the group and subscribe again) does not help.

I hope this is "local" glitch (in that particular thread) because it
seems posts in this group are OK.

Good luck getting to the root of the issue! I don't have a clue at
this point.
