The livna package contains the "evil" nvidia modules, iirc called
kmod-nvidia. The OSS nvidia module "nv" or so, works only with 2D
and even that is magnitudes slower then the nvidia modules.
The reason seems nvidia has done a good job developing an ultra
fast module, no problem if you have all the specs. They could
even more improve it with just GPL'ing it.
Recently tested googleearth for Linux with FC5 and the evil
nvidia modules and have to admit, simply rocks and was fun using.
Without 3D hardware acceleration it's usable but not real fun.

Even then, many people including me use a console newsreader,
would have to store (post bone) this message while typing to be
able to go back to your OP and read what it was about, then back
to the article. This is asked a bit much. In addition the OP
might been already expired and removed from most nntp server, so
people just see your follow up. It doesn't make much sense
without the OP. You use Google, which doesn't expire articles
since it is the primary archive of usenet, as this they do a
pretty good job.
Using it to write does cut you of from all advantages real nntp
reader have to offer. Why should one use a stinking browser
environment to type my messages, when one can have the editor of
