slrn - How to set max message to read?

I'm new to slrn and can't seem to find the setting to let me say how many articles it should pull down from a server. Right now I get something like then on large groups:

alt.os.linux.gentoo: Read how many? (default: 22543)

What I'd like to do is have the default not be that huge number and always default to something smaller, like maybe 500.

I've googled and checked the slrn sight and must just be missing it.

I believe what you want is to know how to have it download up to 500 articles without asking and to never ask for or download more. I have

set query_read_group_cutoff 500

in my config files, but that merely means it will download up to 500 articles without asking and then ask if there are more. I think setting it to '-500' would do what you want. See manual.txt for details of setting it to zero or negative.
