new accounts may receive a temporary 481 connection error. It will start to work within an hour though (probably much sooner).

Yeah, that's what I thought, but I've copied the username/pass half a dozen times.

Update: Apparently there's a significant delay - it's connecting successfully now, a few hours later.

I'm also getting the 481 error. Hoping it's a delay in account creation.

I'm no computer expert. I'm just here for the Linux .iso's like everybody else.

This provider is not a Highwinds reseller like I already have with other block providers (and the comparable NewsDemon sale), so I jumped in. I use my usenet blocks that I usually buy on black friday about as much as I use my Steam sale games, but I like the idea of another source for filling missing blocks on obscure 4 year old articles.

Yeah, there seems to be a problem with the account creation process. I tried all the ports with various errors. Some poor guy is going to sit down to their desk on Monday with a huge backlog of tickets and will perhaps no longer be friends with the one that pulled the trigger on the sale.

This one is still going, unlike the liars at NewsDemon who canceled their promotion early.

Probably. If they don't let you do multiple orders on the same account, just try a second one with a different payment method and contact info.
