I run fetchnews manually several times every day.
Here's my guess as to what's happening. I connect to two servers to help
make sure I don't miss any posts. The second server gives a 503 error

instead of per server?
Here's my syslog file. Note the time lapse between the 'articles posted'
and the 'Reading server info' lines.
