Thanks folks, I'll add this to the Newbie Archwiz FAQ, but can you clarify some

@examine $news indicates that this command is:
@addnews (anything) to $news
where anything is really # of message on *news. Nevertheless on my meeting moo
I have to issue the command as:
@addnews [# of message] to #61
$news on my moo is #61. Using *news doesn't work either. Is it supposed to
work with $news (or, perhaps *news) and I have something set up wrong?

Same diff here as with @addnews above.
