Hi Conrad, and welcome to the pan mailing list.  (Forgive my senility if
you've posted here before :)

I'll answer your question with two questions :p

I've read many threads, in this group and elsewhere, about the utility of
multiple connections to a server.  I've never been satisfied with any of
the explanations I've seen so far -- but I've never used a server that
allowed more than four connection, so what do I know?

What is the speed of your internet connection to giganews, and do they
limit the bandwidth of any single connection to their servers?

Second, when you download multiple posts/headers from multiple groups,
etc, how many individual download icons do you see in the status bar
at the bottom of the pan window?
