NewsOutlook is a tool that aims to improve the signal to noise ratio of Usenet newsgroups and syndication feeds (RSS and Atom) by selecting only useful news. It consists of two modules: a Web-based configuration front-end and a server daemon. It uses the HTML::Mason framework and stores data in a MySQL database.
