MS Answers not available - change of domain name ?

Jan 8, 2011 at 8:58 AM


today ( Jan 8th ) answers groups in my Gravity newsreader stopped working.
Even trying to subscribe a new asnswers group did not provide Answers.* group list.
When I reread a group list, no Answers group is listed

MS Answers web server is working, but seems to me having different domain address as before.

Coud it be CF NNTP bridge need modifying the configuration ?

It seems that they moved the domain... also several other people having problems with the web-interface.

I do not know if they still support the Forums-Web-Service... the MS Answers bridge does corrently also not work...

Yes, I have just wanted to add, that even their web interface has troubles in folowing their links, but you were faster.

BTW thanks for the bridge, I will use it as long as MS allow...

It looks something happened to answers server again. They announced changes again, and furthermore the webserver is slow, many timeouts.
