My major problem with rebol is finding the documentation, so there is a online manual, so I look up nntp:// here... Does it provide me with any help on how to download a single message from it's ID? Not at all, it just gives me a few examples, I have no idea wether there is usage beyond those examples or not. So I can use the raw tcp:// instead to talk nntp, great, but then what's the nntp:// for? Half the time I try to search articles the way described in the examples rebol ends up hanging (both linux and amiga version) I find rebol full of these nonsense annoyances, hence I find it difficult to work with. In other words, I'd love to like it, but I cant. -- kolla
