Another weekend, another geeking session. This time I spent it building a very basic news server on the linux machine. The main aim was to ensure that myself and Grete could read news regardless of
which ISP we were connected to. So, it connects news every hour from a list of ISP’s (and if we’re not online, it doesn’t do anything), and then we use it to read our news using Agent.
Seems to work ok, although I’m not sure how much disk space it’s going to need …
Used a linux product called Leafnode .. doesn’t scale but works well with a small number of users.
