    What benefits do the patches give? I notice you have an mm suffix and
    other users have an rt suffix. What do these signify?

    To be honest, I'm quite happy with JED's svn version.

    The mm suffix is Thomas Wiegner's minimal multipart patch that can be
    found:

    http://www.foory.de/thw/slrn/

    It does some cosmetic work on posts that deliver text + extra baggage
    and just shows the text. Not that commonly seen but there was a recent
    run of it on an alpine NG which I gather gave Thomas the idea. If you
    want to try it you will have to patch manually and for the perfect
    finish adjust the following lines in the patch:

    +--------------------------
    Index: src/version.h
    ================================================== =================
    --- src/version.h (revision 254)
    +++ src/version.h (working copy)
    @@ -19,7 +19,7 @@
    59 Temple Place - Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307, USA.
    */

    -#define SLRN_VERSION_STRING "pre0.9.9-102"
    ^^^
    +#define SLRN_VERSION_STRING "pre0.9.9-102/mm"
    ^^^^^^^
    #define SLRN_VERSION 990

    #ifndef SLRNPULL_CODE
    +-----------------------

    The rt suffix is Rudy Taraschi's colour scoring patch which allows you
    to fine-tune your scoring in a big way:

    I have not used this but Troy is a big fan. The site has some
    screenshots of the patch in action. Rudy is not only a great guy but
    he uses Slackware as well :-)

    Exactly! The patches are simply icing on the cake :-)

    I don't think I have any use for either ATM, Andrew.

    Thanks for taking the time to give me the rundown though. It was much
    appreciated.

    Oops. That was an older version of Thomas Wiegner's patch, this is no
    longer required in minimal_multipart_0.9.9-87.patch.
