That's because netscape reads an article one at a time! I rather wait a
few minutes and download an entire batch with uqwk. Our news server will lock
up a few times per night after midnight and it is fustrating when reading
under netscape. After you download the entire batch with uqwk, you can
readnews instantaneous and never need to worry about the NNTP server
being overloaded afterwards (except when downloading the new batch of course).
