I don't know how fast Netscape is in retrieving articles. It may also
be possible that you are low on memory.

I made some tests with leafnode-2.0b8 (which shouldn't be much faster
than leafnode-1.9.18 with regard to posting and reading articles):

1) local posting of an article with 90000 lines with 60 chars each:

time rpost localhost < prepared_article

real    0m6.614s
user    0m0.140s
sys     0m0.510s

2) retrieval of the same posting via ARTICLE:

time ( echo group local.leafnode; sleep 1; echo article 3; sleep 1; \
  echo quit ) | nc localhost nntp

to stdout:

real    0m7.164s
user    0m0.020s
sys     0m5.270s

to /dev/null:

real    0m2.249s
user    0m0.010s
sys     0m0.030s

This gives a speed of 766 kB/sec to stdout and 2.4 MB/sec to /dev/null.

Machine is a Celeron with 400 MHz and 64 MB of RAM.
