    Phillip, I'm on dial-up with a low monthly allowance of download
    included. So as to limit the amount I read in News groups, I use the
    "Lines" setting, so I can look down the list and just read the ones with
    the most lines, i.e. if the lines in a thread show as 6, 15, 22, 45, 12,
    26, I would just read the 45 line and 26 line posts, checking that the
    quoted posters follow those on the list.

    If I had the message size as Bytes, then chances are they would all show
    as 3KB (or something), so I'd have to read them all!! Causing me to use
    more of my download limit.

    if you go for postings with the biggest lines, then
    what do you do with snipped postings?

    .....which, presumably, would be why one message had 45 lines and the
    next had 12, in my example.

    As I said I would read the post with 45 lines AND the post with 26 lines

    (Of course, those who post with undesirable long sig files can, and do,
    stuff me up!!)

    No! We've recently found out the Beijing is almost above us, thanks to
    the Olympics/Paralympics. Well, above Perth, the capital of West
    Australia, but Perth is about 3000km (and 2 hours) west of here.

    Bangkok would be a bit further west.

    Neither can it do NNTP very well. That is exactly my point.

    And for those who have never found a better NNTP client after trying
    everything (well M$ LookOut that came pre-installed) good for you. But
    for people who know what they are doing in the NNTP world it just
    doesn't offer enough power or control.
