Yeah, that's probably the closest. I suppose what I'm suggesting is better 
support for semi-permament connections to the internet. My ADSL goes down 
frequently, and I'd like to be able to access my favourite newsgroups when it 
is down, because I use the info for setting up servers,etc. I'd also like to 
have the benefits of permamently online access when I am online.

Please don't. I've been using it on one of my machines here :-).

Probably regex support. Currently it looks as if a lot of messages have 
either garbage characters on the bottom, or numbers in the subject, and I'd 
like to be able to detect this and delete the message.

Cool. The next version of pan will support Yenc and should be out in the next

Well it means that you can sample the contents of a group and decide if you 
want to have it downloaded all the time. Thanks,
