Thanks, Wayne.

You're saying, I think, that I can't treat newsgroups the same
way I treat threads within ONE newsgroup, correct?

So, to do what I want, group together some groups to look at
TODAY -- versus some *different* set of groups I want to (tomorrow) 
choose to look at when tomorrow comes around, then what I'd do
is to create a "junk" group, and simply add newsgroups to
that, then tomorrow to *destroy* (perhaps) that (junk) group,
and redefine it to be some new set of newsgroups?

Is that a workable scheme?  (or maybe I understand nothing
at all on this subject?)


And, what's this "multi-rc" selector?  (Heck, what's an "rc"?)


Today, if I merely "mark" various newsgroups (just as I'd mark
threads in the thread-selector), does that info get saved
anywhere, eg in some default "group"?


Just looked, no .trn/access file.

Is there any more-up-to-date doc on trn -- or even parts
of trn -- than that "trn manual" written eons ago by that
professor somewhere?

(ie, where to read about this stuff?   Yes, I will peruse
that (ancient) manual too).

Thanks for all the help!

(There's more to this trn than meets the eye!)
