Thunderbird – Show NNTP Posts Size

Personally I don’t know why you would want to see a news post’s size in lines, but that’s the default in Thunderbird for showing the size of a news (NNTP) posts. The following is how to change it to show in data units e.g. kilobytes.

In the Tools menu, Select Options, Click the Advanced icon at the top, then click on the General tab, click the Config Editor button. Type news.show_size_in_lines into the filter, set the value to False.

You can now close the about:config window, and you will now find that the posts in news group will be as a size not in lines.

The Return of Internode Premium Usenet Access

Didn’t see this one coming, but it’s a good thing for anyone who is and Internode customer. It’s back to the good old days of Premium Usenet access from probably the number one ISP in Australia. To bad I’m not with them at present, although my place of work is. Then again I might consider this to be something that will make me change back to them as this is a very nice value added service for an ISP to offer.
