err, this may, or may not be off topic. i am using:
tin pre-1.4 release 19990927 ("Nine While Nine")
[UNIX] (c) Copyright 1991-99 Eain Lea.
usenet.xxx.edu InterNetNews NNRP server INN 1.7.2 08-Dec-1997
ready (posting ok).
and, yes, i do attend "xxx" univeristy. i never miss a class!
i'm just a lowly user :) anyhow, when it reads a newsgroup, it has a
status type thing where it says 145674/4564324 like that. it seems to
get a _huge_ portion right off the bat, then it slows to increments of
fifty. i _could_ install tin on my linux laptop, but space is ver
limited. and, what would be the point? i still need a connection to the
net. as a user, i use the version on my schools sun computers. can
i get tin to work faster at bringing up a newsgroup?
otherwise, tin is neato :)
