havent been around here for a while. i haven't used newsbin either for a while either living in linux land :D but started to the miss the program i started out with when i 1st started using newsgroups back in 2002 :shock: wow! its been a long time. :mrgreen:

anyway im using manjaro 64 and everything is smooth. this is probably the best its ever been on linux that i have used. i was actually able to install the 64bit installer which i was never able to before. i havent noticed any problems yet. its been stable.

nice to be back on newsbin :D
