I get my primary newsfeed from my ISP (insightbb.com), I think it's
actually set up as a connection to Giganews. InsightBB is now
reconfiguring many of their services, and access to the news server
(netnews.insightbb.com) was down on Friday. Last night it seemed to
come back up, but the groups that fetchnews have finished fetching
show a *huge* number of new posts that I'm certain are not all new.

Apr 28 23:24:01 linus fetchnews: alt.os.linux.slackware: XOVER: 76539 seen, 3730 I have, 0 filtered, 72809 toget
Apr 28 23:24:01 linus fetchnews: alt.os.linux.slackware: will fetch 72809 articles
Looking through the group with slrn, I see that nearly all of the
"new" posts are from 2003 and 2004. They show up in the articles
window roughly in the order they were received--in other words the
2006 posts before Friday are listed before these "new" ones, and the
truly new posts (those 20 or so that have posting dates of today)
show up after.
I'm assuming this is the result of some renumbering oddities in the
feed somewhere. I suppose I can just live with it, but I would
prefer to clean out the old articles that are out of sequence. Is
there a way to run texpire to remove the old posts using the Date:
