Hi,

Currently I use pine for reading usenet news...

What if I want to have reading news off-line ??? (i.e. off-line, because I
have dial-up i-net connection)...

regards,
plamen.

News Peruser, XAgent, INN, Leafnode are all possibilities.

INN and Leafnode are in the ports collection.  For the others, see:

I'm using INN + suck in the same situation on FreeBSD-2.2.5.

I'm using leafnode for that, a small and simple newsserver. You can find
it in the ports collection.

1. Interested in simple off-line news reading package for slow lines?

Hello,

I got my first phone bill since I started reading news over a 14K4 PPP
serial line and it was quite a shock. Just reading the comp.os.linux.* groups
costs me about one Linux CD-ROM per month.

I have tried a couple of news readers, but I haven't found one for Linux
which is optimized for off-line news reading over a slow line. So I wrote
a simple package of shell scripts and C functions which is more suited
for slow lines.

This is how it works:

   1) Connect. Get the subject header lines of all new articles in the
      subscribed groups. Disconnect.

   2) Select articles based on the subject lines, using a text editor.

   3) Connect. Get the selected articles. Disconnect.

To use the package you need access to a news server which supports both the
NNTP protocol (RFC 977) and the XHDR extension (I think most servers support
it).

Is anyone interested in this package? If so, please post to comp.os.linux.misc,
or send me an e-mail. I'll consider submitting it to sunsite. I'm still
developing the package, so it may take a while before I can distribute a
stable version.
