Downloads and posts news

Newsstar fetches news and posts it to a local news server: INN and sn are supported. The program can make multiple simultaneous connections, not only to one server, but to several, supporting up to 10 "threads". Before fetching each article, it checks that it hasn't already been downloaded by another thread or in a previous session. It can also "pipeline" article requests to make more efficient use of bandwidth.
