    Hi Folks,

    work. The advent of computers has certainly tidied up my grammar = and spelling.

    Al credit due to you mate for all that hard work, but it would be nice to know that you could also
    just as easily have posted your links in "plain" text.

    HTML posts on newsgroups aren't generally welcomed.

    Likewise with Mozilla. Good choice with Gravity by the way - it's certainly a discerning usenet
    readers choice :)

    I used it prior to Mozilla which I started to trial [1] and sort of haven't stopped trialling yet.

    [1] 6 months or so ago.

    There's no actual link in the body-text. (There is an email address, but that's a different thing)

    Perhaps there is in the attached HTML file, but I don't open attachments that come with
    newsgroup posts.

    its a shame they stopped developing gravity ... im using 'super' gravity
    - it had a few additions beyond the time they officially stopped wth it

    apart from xnews ive found it the best newsreader for me and xnews only beats it for large binary
    combines ... although its rare i bother with any of it now

    i havent used mozilla at all .. think the last time i did was when having a mess with linux which i
    do from time to time to see how its progressing
