Re: [leafnode-list] Fetch

<< I have a couple of questions.  I was running fetch manually, but

Either the power switch or the reset button (if available) should
do.  If the machine refuses to stop, pull the power plug.
Hope That Helps!

Seriously, "kill -INT" or ^C are the correct ways.  fetch catches
that signal and cleans up nicely after itself.  Using any other
signal means that it *won't* clean up.

I, too, would like to know how to rebuild overview files.  I have a
program to "rm" articles out of my news spool after fetching -- it
looks for patterns that the fetch filter can't handle.  I'd like those
articles to never show up in my trn newsreader (except for their
article numbers being reserved); currently, their subject lines show
up but when I hit "n" and get sent to them, I get "Article not
available" or some such.
