... such as, when re-installing your OS or moving to another computer.
My newsreader (tin) cannot adapt to that.  It shows by not listing any
articles, although fetchnews got them.  On a new installation, without
a backup of the news-spool, articles get much lower numbers.  I only
back up the contents of news/interesting.groups/ so that at least the
groups I read are recorded.  Anyway, when this happens, I cannot do much
except fixing up tins .newsrc file where it keeps the groups with the
articles already read: using an editor only the newsgroup, a colon and
a space at the start of the line are kept, the rest deleted.
