    I think the solution is being worked on by the slash team. I remember
    seeing something about a NNTP interface in the works. If this happens
    then you could read slash content 'offline' via your favorite

    There are also a variety of 'slash tickers' that grab headlines and do
    different things with them.

    Check out the slashcode site:

    There is also always the possibility of doing some hacking ourselves and
    putting together an alternative slash client.
