I actually used Netscape's nntp client for a couple years, as
well as MSOE's, but lack of *any* good Win32 software was my
primary reason for switching to linux in the first place. I
heard about Xnews, but I'd deleted my Windows partition by then,
so... oh well. :)
On linux I've tried trn, gnus, and slrn. Unless you're a lisp
guru, I suggest slrn.
I've used mostly *X in the past. I found it poorlyQuote:> and an irc client [that supports dcc send/get]?
Several people have suggested irssi, so I will probably play with

Just tried slrn as per your advice. Pretty nice, does color too! Good tip,Quote:> slrn
the (still) best reader is trn and it's variants, but it is pre-html/color.
trn only runs on *nix, afaik, but could be compiled to run under cygwin.

we had an nfs mounted file everyone could read from anywhere on the wan
which had several weeks of prices tabulated, right up the the last (5)
minute. low tech, this was 1990, but very useful. --Loren
1. Can't keep my IRC connections stable with text-based IRC clients?
I replaced my old Netgear RT311 router last night with an old Linksys
BEFSX41 (latest firmware v1.52.15). However, I am having problems
keeping my IRC programs staying connected. After about every five
minutes, they get disconnected.
The router's firewall log had these lines:
2008-10-18 22:17:12 1586/TCP from [deleted IRC's IP address]:6667 to
192.168.0.22:1586 Invalid TCP packet received, dropping packet
Note: Changed 192.168.1.xxx to 192.168.0.xxx so I didn't have to
reconfigure the computers' IP addresses after swapping from an old
Netgear RT311 router.
From what I can see online with Google searches, this is a known issue
since people seems to have this problem and no solution/fixes (even
after five years or so? Wow!).
I did notice a pattern. It seems like text based IRC clients (e.g.,
BitchX) and IRC bots (info and chat types) get disconnected after about
five minutes. With GUI clients (SeaMonkey, and Trillian Basic), I don't
What's up with that and is there a way to fix this since I prefer text
based clients? Thank you in advance. :)
