I'm looking for an offline news reader (preferably RSS but anything will do).

Does anyone know of one?

I wish I could say if it worked on a c7xx! ;-)

I use it constantly on my 5600 though and it's great. The current version does have two minor problems though. The first is that the speech option doesn't work if you use a compressed cache. The author is supposed to come up with a fix for that soon. The second is that it rarely had a problem with certain sites. Apparently some pages would give the wrong response and Zepo would sit and wait forever. It could use a timeout... On the other hand, since adding two more RSS feeds and switching to an uncompressed cache, I haven't had the timeout problem...

I hope it works for you. I love it, especially having it sit there and read the news to me! ;-)

The author is responsive to e-mail by the way!

Clciked just a minute too soon... I just received the new version of Zepo from the author, now version 2.4a. Installed & works great... biggrin.gif

I tried Zepo on the SL-6000L - it crashes on take off.

ZaurRSS also does not work properly on the 6000.

Anyone aware of any that does work on the 6000?
