My current setup, which I am quite content with for discussion groups,
is GNUS in XEmacs 21.1.10 and leafnode. I run XEmacs on my laptop,
and Leafnode on another computer that is also a router for my DSL
What I would like to do is monitor binary groups served up by my ISP
(Bell Atlantic) with a different news reader so that I don't go
sucking down all the messages in groups I look at. Leafnode doese not
have enough disk space available to it for all the spool files! ;-)
So the news reader I use will directly log on to the BA news server
the same way leafnode does, but it will have a seperate file for
keeping track of the groups I subscribe too and which messages I have
If someone knows a way I can have GNUS keep track of a seperate news
server, I would be happy to use it. There should be a way to switch
between leafnode and whatever BA uses and maintain a seperate
server-x.eld file for that server.
I don't want to cache binaries locally.
BTW, I do *not* know elisp :-(. But if there is a section in the GNUS
info file I should pay particular attention too or if someone has a
emaxical incantation to allow seperate servers to be used by one user
with seperate server-x.eld files, I would love to have them.
If I appear totaly incoherant it is because coffee is really not good
at keeping the brain working right. It is good at keeping you from
getting any damn sleep if you drink it too late in the day. Damn I'm
tired! Why can't I fall asleep? Should I start setting X-No-Archive:
yes in my headers?
