I've been running nntprss for my rss feeds for well over a year by
now, and I have been extremely happy using it. It practically sits on
the same machine as I run gnus on, so it does not slow down gnus. It's
excellent. Kudos to Jason Brome for it.

I found it way better than nnrss, since that hogged down gnus when I'd
had just a few rss feeds. It was also beginning to be painfully slow
when updating the group buffer (hitting g).
