And then I've just installed slrn+slrnpull on my home PC.
This rocks, except one thing : NNTP servers aren't always
perfect. For example, the server I've currently access to seems
to loose some posts (e.g. posts from Randal). I can read them on
another server, read-only for me. So what's the solution ?
- Do nothing and decide it's not important
- Install INN (ughh)
- Patch slrnpull to allow to retrieve posts from several news servers
(boring, but potentially fun)
- Write my own newsspool / NNTP proxy, in Perl of course, and make slrn use
