    Thoth is, in general, a bit slower than MT-NewsWatcher, especially for
    text-based article surfing. But then again, I see you're using MT-NW
    3.1 - which doesn't support yEnc... So Thoth is also doing more for you.

    A faster CPU will help. A better help tho, is to dump Thoth's cache
    files periodically and perhaps disable parts caching altogether. This
    also has the side effect of making Thoth a bit more stable.

    It's still a very crashy app tho...

    FWIW,

    Not round here it ain't. Never crashed that I recall. Decently fast
    too, even on a Pismo. Only glitch is that it sometimes cancels logout
    without any obvious reason. It does binaries really quickly, and
    nicely, except for all the temporary files it leaves in trash.

    Thanks John. Works a treat. Dunno how many time I looked for that. Doh!
