Can't do (cmd - ) anymore - Mac Networking

Can anyone tell me why I can't do a <command dash> anymore to see if a specific NG contains a particular item?

    Default Can't do (cmd - ) anymore

    Can anyone tell me why I can't do a <command dash> anymore to see if a
    specific NG contains a particular item? I get the following log entry:

    M 04/08/2004 12:04:02 R 216.196.97.131 119 49153 211 62841 2006449
    2069289 alt.binaries.sounds.mp3.world-music
    M 04/08/2004 12:04:09 C 216.196.97.131 119 49153 XPAT Subject
    2044290-2069289 *[Nn][Ee][Bb][Bb][Ii][Uu]*
    M 04/08/2004 12:04:09 R 216.196.97.131 119 49153 501 xpat not
    supported

    If I'm reading it correctly and it's because "xpat not supported", what
    do I do to fix the problem? I was always able to do this keyboard
    search thing in the past.

    Have you changed news providers? If not, maybe they've changed their
    server software.

    And it looks like you're using the free Comcast server. It doesn't have
    very good indexing (I can't filter on the Newsgroups header any more).
    I don't know whether this is true if you switch to the pay service.

    I don't think there's anything free with this one. I paid for one
    year's service with GigaNews. BTW, what is Comcast?

    Oops, I misread the header -- the line that mentioned comcast was from
    one of my messages...

    Comcast is a cable modem ISP here in the states.
