Refresh Summary buffer after modifying summary-line-format


Hi, I'm trying to make Gnus a little more reactive to my impulses. 

I like the defaults, and I try to add on a little customization as I go.
So far, I've managed to start making keybindings that will modify the
window configurations, like 

(define-key gnus-summary-mode-map (kbd "v 2") 'my-gnus-layout-2-pane)

The function includes a gnus-add-configuration, and a refresh via   
(gnus-summary-expand-window) (like `=' binding). 

But now, when I try to do the same for the summary-line-format, I cannot
see a good way to refresh the buffer. If I change the variable, then by
hand I can type `q' and then select the group again, and the summary
line will have the new formatting. But when I type `q', the cursor jumps
to a group with unread mail, though I was looking at my INBOX which
shows read mail, and ticked mail. 

Here are my functions:

(defun my-gnus-summary-line-time ()
  (interactive)
  (setq-default gnus-summary-line-format 
        "%&user-date; %U%R%z%I%(%[%4L: %-23,23f%]%) %s\n"
        gnus-user-date-format-alist '((t . "%d-%b-%y %H:%M"))
        )
  (gnus-summary-expand-window)
  )
(defun my-gnus-summary-line-date ()

State of gnus-cloud

Hi,

I use two computers these days.  I would like to sync read-status
across computers so that I don't have to re-read the same messages on
the "other" computer.  Is gnus-cloud usable for this yet?  Or is there
another methods of keeping track of what is read and what is not
across computers?

I would rather not sync the whole mail folder.

Thanks,
Rasmus

Oh, this is very cool. I feel like I just got my babel fish.

Another is Aioe.org - you don't have to register,
there.

As for channels, there is alt.test where you can send
messages, reply to them, and see what happens.

Other that that, my impression is that your (the OP's)
mental image of Usenet is that of the decline days,
with the binary groups creating havoc for the ISPs and
all. It isn't like that - relax.

And check out my "fan" page:

Don't say that: read the documentation for
`ispell-message'!

what is a good newsgroup to experiment with my gnus nntp settings?

I took a couple stabs at using GNUS in the past, but was still probably 
too green with Emacs and the type of thinking. But finally, I think GNUS 
is here to stay, and it feels WAAAAYY better than relying solely on 
"more GUI" clients. Managing emails and emailing has never felt so easy.

However, my use of newsgroups is still a little rough around the edges, 
and I anticipate some fiddling. In the end, I usually download all the 
headers, for instance with Thunderbird I've done this across a dual 
boot. Unfortunately, I think this has provoked the gmane to block my 
ISP, though I was lucky enough I think the block was removed soon after.

MY QUESTION:

Is there another entity similar to gmane, more recreational say, or less 
valuable to me, where I can mess with my configuration and not risk an 
ISP block? I've read online something about ISP providers may do this, 
but I don't really understand. Is this my internet provider? Or would I 
contact a local institution such as University of Washington?

Thank you,
Brady

Splitting rule for second header occurrence

Hi,

currently I deputize a colleague. We have a mail filtering rule active
on the server side which is forwarding all mails from outside of our
company to me, and I want to split them into a separate group with a
fancy splitting rule.

As far as I see, the headers look like

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
...
Delivered-To: <my address>
...
Delivered-To: <my colleagues address>
...
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I'm now looking for a splitting rule matching the *second* occurrence of
the "Delivered-To" header (with my colleagues address).

Any ideas about how to do this?

News server - i.e., Aioe.org? In that case, I should
probably look for a list on their home page!

Irony: Browse a list of nasty words so you won't
unintentionally be nasty!

> 441 is an nntp status code

Yes:

    Response code 441
       Generated by: POST (second stage)
       Meaning: posting failed.

It seems to be a generic error code though which
doesn't relate specificly to this problem, so perhaps
that is a dead end.

bad word (body)

Sometimes I cannot send to Aioe.org because it says
there is a bad word in the body.

But I can't find it. So I try to modify the text to get
rid of it.

Sometimes I do but still cannot understand what is bad
about it.

Sometimes I can't find it. By then, I have tried so
many times so when I try to send something completely
different that doesn't comply either, because there are
"too many errors from my IP". So I have to get a new
IP... (Yeah, completely ridiculous!)

Is this a Gnus issue or Aioe issue? Or channel issue?
(I have noticed it happens more often on the
alt.os.linux channel.)

Question: how do I find out exactly what word is bad so
I can just remove it (them) and send?

Browse-url-browser-function Problem Solved, Mystery Created

I've been finding that having set the function
Browser-url-browser-function, when clicking on a link it usually
launches a browser, but sometimes does not. I have found out how to
recreate it for sure now. What I do is from a terminal, i.e. lxterminal,
I switch users to a different user, then launch emacs gnus (i.e. in its
own window - gtk). If I click on a link it works and launches the
browser. However, if I go back to the lxterminal and exit the shell,
going back to the original user, emacs is still running, but now
clicking on a link does not work. Why might this be?

I have noticed this as well and I felt the same way as
you. But I could never figure out what caused it. So
I'm happy you asked this question. In general tho, it
isn't a bad way to do such things in hooks. But I agree
doing it once and for all is more appealing and it will
be interesting to learn what we are doing wrong.

remapping 'S' in summary-mode-map does not stick

Hello,

I remap several key bindings for gnus-summary-mode-map and most of them
work, with one exception: binding 'S'.

This is what I have for this binding in my .gnus.el:

(define-key gnus-summary-mode-map (kbd "S") 'gnus-summary-next-article)

I could set that binding in gnus-summary-mode-hook, but it bothers me to
set is every time I enter summary mode and not once and for all.

If somebody knows what is going on here, I'd gladly learn it.

Best,

Alan
