I just learned of this a few minutes ago and thought that I'd share it with others of you who subscribe to Astraweb's usenet services.

This isn't needed in Newsbin. Just set a short "Download Age" then select the groups, right click "Use Download Age". Then download headers normally. I'd set the "Download Age" to however long ago you last successfully downloaded headers.

Thanks for the Info.
