The flnews newsreader is sufficient for Usenet-access, i.e. to receive and read articles from -, as well as to write and post articles to newsgroups.
When you compare news-clients, you will always notice the differences and choose the software that you prefer. Flnews however, has the charm that you can

Digging holes in the ground makes more sense than typing stuff on a computer keyboard. (– unnecessary details removed –) There are trees to plant, firewood to chop, my car to repair and that broken tile to replace.

Getting all done, is enough progress for me. All that I want.

Obsolete: xpath / Nokogiri: Find all nodes in a SVG path.

In the meantime, other techniques are swifter applied and probably easier used in a scripted routine.

spellcheck in qutebrowser

If you want to set a spellcheck dictionary for the running session, type
:set spellcheck.languages ['en-US'] 
:set spellcheck.languages ['en-US', 'de-DE']
:set spellcheck.languages ['en-US', 'de-DE', 'fr-FR']
for only one or several languages at once.

To persist these settings, open and add something like:
# Spellcheck
config.set('spellcheck.languages', ["en-US", "fr-FR", "de-DE"])
