Offline news server

Noffle is a news (nntp) server optimized for few users and low speed dial-up connections to the Internet. It adds offline reading capabilities to existing news readers. Features include optional auto group subscribe/unsubscribe; full, overview and thread subscription modes; local groups; article expiry time customizable for each group; article request stacking for faster download. Noffle is aimed at the home or smaller organisation that wants to read up to a few hundred newsgroups. It is not suitable for running a complete newsfeed and cannot participate in a properly configured newsfeed.
