    From Kyonshi@VERT/EREBOR to All on Fri Jan 5 15:09:14 2024
    I want to use a second newslink.cfg file for pulling some newsgroups from a different server than where I get the main groups from.

    how exactly is the command line command for this?
    I think it should be something along the lines of

    ?newslink.js -newslink2.cfg

    Or is it different?

    Just "?newslink.js newslink2.cfg" (no dash)

    thanks.

    now I only need to figure out why it still doesn't pull anything :)

    in the end I realized I had a typo in the address of the server I was
    trying to pull from. Sigh.

    In this case I am using eternal-september.org, but I have it set to not connect more than 12 times a day, so I haven't actually encountered any
    errors after fixing the typo (that I noticed). Also I have a specific
    set of groups, many of which are basically dead anyway, so it's not like
    I see so much happening out of the test groups.
