Binary package “newsx” in ubuntu hardy

An NNTP client for posting and fetching news

 NewsX is an NNTP client for Unix. It will connect to a remote NNTP server
 and post outgoing articles batched by the news system, as well as fetch
 incoming articles.
 .
 It provides the NNTP capabilities required for small local news spools on
 installations with NNTP access only through limited ISP accounts. It works
 well via a dialup SLIP/PPP connection.
 .
 It seems to be faster than using suck over a modem link.
