Title: Usenet NNTP Protocol
Post by: Zeroshade on May 10, 2009, 11:20:15 pm
I'd like to see a feature that allows the administrator to populate categories with pictures from a usenet newsgroup, as an example, if you've got a Album about aviation, and you've got access to a usenet server, you can choose to populate this album with pictures from the newsgroup alt.binaries.pictures.aviation.

I'm pretty sure the protocol and decoding classes are available around the internet, yeah it's still a lot of work I guess but it would be nice to have fresh content added to your gallery 24/7.

* NNTP server address, port, username and password.

* Content approval or direct display

* Quota for the maximum file size of each MIME Type to download from the newsgroup.

* Type of Material to gather, Pictures, Video Clips etc..

* Integrated Decoding, yEnc, UUENCODE, Base64, BinHex.

* Cron feature?
