ZipNews is an offline reading system that was developed
independently by Jack Kilday (jkilday@nlbbs.com).  It is primarily
intended for Waffle, PC-Board and Wildcat! systems, although the
UQWK package can generate ZipNews packets (and process ZipNews reply
packets) on Unix systems.  Two known ZipNews compliant readers exist.
SOUP and ZipNews formats are superficially very similar, and it is
not inconceivable that a reader for one format could be adapted to
read the other format.  The original ZipNews reader can also function
as a local newsreader for Waffle system adminstrators.
