I'll see what I can do with it. Looks as a good idea for me.

Yes. In the previous version, the download of images and caching
online content was multi-threaded and therefore quite fast, but it
caused corruptions of SD-card. I was not able to do it MT without
SD-card corruption (probably some problems in MT implemetation of
windows mobile OS, maybe SD-card driver problems).
The single-threaded version works for me reliable, but it is slow. I
use WinInet API and that's probably the problem. Advantage of WinInet
is that it's part of OS and therefore pRSSr is so small. For future
versions, I will have to replace WinInet with my own implementation -
it is missing some features I will need in the future.

I want to do that but i do not have time to implement it, thanks for reminding.
