Resuming an nntp connection?

Your news reader should resume a broken connection automatically.  I've only 
used a couple, but they both reconnected automatically.  Most news readers 
I've seen expect you to run a local news server, thus my comment that you're 
probably best off doing that.  It's then up to the news server to resume 
broken connections.  Your articles would be waiting for you when you're 
ready to read them.  I don't know of a way to force trn to try connecting 
again since I don't use it.  I still think it has to do with the very large 
amounts of articles.
