I got so sick and tired of trying to configure NN or INN for nntp news,
I finally threw them out in favor of simplicity...netscape news.
Works great right of the bat, the only problem being the newsgroup names
are smushed in the frame on the left. I made the frame bigger, but they
remained smushed like
comp....isc is meant to be comp.os.linux.misc
I can't find any defaults or preferences that let me lengthen these. It's
a real pain trying to find the news gorups I'm ineterested in!!
