[leafnode-list] Getting earlier messages into leafnode.
My usual news server is having overload problems, so i tried the one with my
other ISP. Somehow, a marker was set so that I didn't get the normal default
of 300 posts for "initialfetch." (I know that 2 000 is recommended, but that
many wouldn't be available in Knode, and I couldn't read that many.) In one
group I have only about a half-dozen.
What can I do to reset the counter on a per-newsgroup basis, short of deleting
everything and starting again? If I delete the relevant message folders in
/var/spool/news, will that do it? If I unsubscribe and re-subscribe, I will
still get only later ones. Using version 9.2 - anything later causes
(BTW, thanks Matthias for the tip about the extra buttons. I have abandoned
that server - the spam was getting through regardless.)
(Anyone know of dictation software for Linux, else I will have to go back to
Windoze. :-( All suggestions direct please.)
