Let’s say you use your home computer for dialing up the system that runs Emacs and Gnus. If your modem is slow, you want to reduce (as much as possible) the amount of data sent over the wires.
Set this to
nil to inhibit Gnus from re-centering the summary
buffer all the time. If it is
vertical, do only vertical
re-centering. If it is neither
vertical, do both
horizontal and vertical recentering.
Cut down on the headers included in the articles to the minimum. You can, in fact, make do without them altogether—most of the useful data is in the summary buffer, anyway. Set this variable to ‘^NEVVVVER’ or ‘From:’, or whatever you feel you need.
Use the following to enable all the available hiding features:
(setq gnus-treat-hide-headers 'head gnus-treat-hide-signature t gnus-treat-hide-citation t)
By setting this to
nil, you can make all the windows smaller.
While this doesn’t really cut down much generally, it means that you
have to see smaller portions of articles before deciding that you didn’t
want to read them anyway.
If this is non-
nil, all threads in the summary buffer will be
If this is
nil, Gnus will not put information in the buffer mode
lines, which might save some time.
