I've been fiddling around a bit as well, but the main problem is, that I 
do not have access to an NNTP feed, and Cyrus didn't not support pulling 
one in (using MODE READER, and sucking in articles). In the end, having 
to make a chain with an intermediate program that did the Cyrus <--> ISP 
NNTP server interaction and LMTP injection turned out to be rather a 
pain, hence I dropped the idea altogether, unfortunately.

If this could be changed, I would love to try again ;-)



Simple guidelines to happiness:
Work like you don't need the money,
love like your heart has never been broken and 
dance like no one can see you.
