StackApp NNTP bridge

About

With this NNTP Bridge you can follow all posts of StackOverflow (and other StackExchange sited) very easily. Each question will be shown as one thread with all tags, the comments, answers and comments to this answers. Below each post, you will find the direct link to this post. So you can easily post a reply or answer the question.

Also it shows your inbox and notification in a separate virtual newsgroup. Therefor it uses authentication and https (SSL). You can optionally disable this feature in the user-settings.

It might help to get a better overview of all threads withing a specific tag. Also it might help if you are used to newsgroups.

This application works as an NNTP-Server which provides the posts to any newsreader.

Currently it provides only read-only access to the posts. Later it is planned to implement some write access (only commenting, because othe writer operations are not available in the V2.1 API).
