I have used it for years with very few problems. I have had to rebuild the
overview and groupinfo a few times but never lost any articles. Lately I've
been having problems with getting a message about new newsgroups that
doesn't go away and I can no longer read several local newsgroups unless I
do texpire. As soon as fetchnews runs something gets corrupted and the local
groups are most unreadable again. Leafnode seems fine for small to midsize
personal server but I don't trust it anymore so I am going to INN.

I read about that and it looks very attractive from a speed standpoint. I am
thinking I would like more control over retaining certain groups though.

I use my news server as an archive as well. I will have to figure out how to
set up INN for this. My retention needs vary widely by group.
