Confirmed. I am unable to get into Astraweb's Member area (getting an HTML 500 error).
I am able to connect to ssl.astraweb.com but it hangs for awhile then fails to authenticate. It worked yesterday.
We no longer have a direct contact with Astraweb so I guess it's wait and see at this point.
They've noticed on Reddit as well: https://www.reddit.com/r/usenet/comment ... ra_at_the/
