    At one time you had a "news site" replicator, IIRC it ran on lucky. Did it have a web access?

    Well, I had a NNTP server (Dnews). It "sucked" newsgroups from various places
    (NNTP provider, my employer's server, my NNTP provider, SparkList) so they'd be
    available quickly to me. Once upon a time, I opened it to one or two JP users
    by request but IIRC that faded quickly. There were some gadgets available to
    tack onto it. One was an email (inbound) feed that I could never get working
    well. Visiting their site (netwinsite) I see they say it has a web interface.
    It's no longer developed but still available "as is".

    I was serious when I said I'd be delighted if someone developed forum software
    that emulated Agent (or any decent newsreader). Such an interface should be
    easy for some. Integration with email should be done from scratch (not tacked
    on to 20 year old bulletin board technology). Users would need some space on
    the server to keep track of what they've seen (heck, perhaps that could even be
    done with a cookie).
