    Darn it. I posted two questions here last night, Friday, 18 March
    2005.

    I quit my Usenet reader, relaunched it, came back to this Group and
    there were my two posts.

    I return to the Group today...they're gone.

    What is going on? What am I doing wrong?

    TIA,
    bob

    Re: WHY!! do my posts disappear???

    After a certain amount of time your ISP removes posts to make room for new
    ones. All ISP have different retention times, some are as high as 30 days
    but Usenet access bundled for free with your ISp is usually under a week.

    Good point, I didn't think of that.
