Re: New web newsreader - requesting participation
Speaking of newsgroup web interface, interestingly while the main D site points to this crappy reader: http://www.digitalmars.com/pnews/indexing.php?server=news.digitalmars.com&group=digitalmars.D.announce
there still is a hidden one which is much better imho: http://www.digitalmars.com/webnews/newsgroups.php?art_group=digitalmars.D.announce

http://sourceforge.net/projects/web-news/

btw Gour, neither web interface can display your messages, they appear empty.

That's interesting. For me, in Outlook Express, his messages show up as 
blank too, *but* the message does show up as an attachment (With a filename 
matching the regex "ATT[0-9]+\.txt"). There's a couple other people too 
whose messages also show the same way for me: "Jerome M. Berger" and Russel 
Winder.

Wow, this one is a lot better than the other one!

And it's proper name is "Web-News". Now I feel bad for calling the other one web news, it's like slandering this much better program.


I still think we can do better though!

Shows up perfectly fine here, in Opera, and headers look well-formed, too.

I recommend upgrading your IE6-grade newsreader to something more advanced  
:p

but wouldn't it be better to use the newer frontend now and switch then 
- after your development is finished (i mean the feature stable release, 
not the very first alpha) to your implementation...

That one has horrible bugs. You'll click on a topic, then try to read
a reply, and it shoots you to some random topic 4+ years ago. Happens
all the time. I only use it to post to NG since using Gmail directly
doesn't show up my own posts (this is a known gmail bug).
