Malfunction

Hallo,
Bridge 2 for answers doesn't work any longer. Made a new install -> Prefetch newsgroup list
Answer on display: Start prefetching newsgroup list... That's all. No further reaction. No newsgroups appearing.

Can you sent me the diagnose files? (Help|...)

OK, just sent it.

It seems that you do not have a newsreader which connects to the Bridge... you need a newsreader like "Thunderbrid" to connect to "localhost:120"

I am using 40tude Dialog and until yesterday evening it worked fine all the time. The Newsreader is not the problem. The Bridge should prefetch Newsgroups without Newsreader started. May be "Ildhund" is right and there is no problem on my side?

Seems to be back up again now (17:20Z on 2014-10-07).
Oct 7, 2014 at 5:34 PM
Just tried again. Problem seems to be solved here too. ;-)

Down again. We went through a similar sequence some months (years?) ago when the web service regularly stopped sometime in the middle of the Redmond night, then came up again some time later. It was very disturbing. I think it's precisely the same situation today as yesterday:
