Not having tried this yet, I thought I would ask the question.

NewsPro didn't really like recovering from crashes, losing all the headers and most article status changes since the last backup. :cry:

How well does UE cope... is it written with transaction logging or anything clever on the database?

Chris.

the database is fault tolerant, it means in most cases it will save the state.

after crash it will try to save everything, theoretically it may misfire but it looks like it works.

if you invoke 'save all' and then kill the process or press the reset button it will remember the save point (and all bodies downloaded afterwards).

so it would be trivial to add 'save in x minutes' to guard against system crashes, if ue crashes itself, as a rule it will save everything and then exit.

Doesn't seem to restory the "tabs" you have opened. But that is trivial :)
