( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Is it possible to connect with the various forums, thru NNTP? And use them like regular usenet is setup?

Not really :)

Sure 10+ years ago ... Perlmonks -> NNTP gateway, Monastery NNTP Bridge, CC'ing Comments to Newsgroup... so technically blah blah :) ...

There are already plenty of perl usenet newsgroups ...

Perlmonks isn't usenet :) Is Usenet Still Worth It?, Why does PerlMonks rock?

Is it possible, thru personal settings or whatever to get my group reading interface to resemble the one available on gmane. With Frames and threading so the groups appear in the tried and venerable style of usenet

Sure, its called javascript/jquery, and it most of the hard work has been done already, you just have to load it up into your personal nodelet and DIYSMOP :) See the links of examples and links below
