I am using the version that is in ubuntu's repo for 7.04 which looks
to be 0.120.  Honestly I looked at slrn and I dont like it just
because of the whole s-lang interface.  Also the configuration looks
to be "difficult".  Maybe I am just not looking at it right.  Honestly
all I want from a NNTP client is to type in my NNTP server name and
let it download every header from every group.  I understand this
would take quite some time, but I don't care.  Then after that let me
search for different topics or attachments etc...  then pull down new
headers while I sleep.  Seems none of these clients do this well they
don't do it with very little work.  I guess I am just lazy now.
