Ahh.... If one can set up personalized filters, then I would tend to vote for
more messages and maybe some extra text at the top telling people how to cut
down the number... I do agree that the download speed from "arkanda.net" is
atrociously slow (I have a 56K and it still takes minutes sometimes to get a
message...) -- Mathias: Have you looked into a faster server (I know there
are some fast/free ones out there, especially for something useful like this
rather than someone's homepages with pictures of the dog & kids...).
