I love RSS Bandit; I found it for a client of mine, and
I have been using it myself ever since. Great job!

I've searched the documentation/forum for this, but I
can't find anything; if it already exists, please
forgive me.

Here's what I'm looking for: I would like to let
Bandit update the feeds in the morning, then disconnect
the laptop and take it with me. While I'm riding the
tram to work, pull it up and read. Simple enough,
right? But, many of the feeds that I read require that
I click the link and open the page. This works great
unless you don't have an internet connection.

Is it possible, therefore, to force Bandit to
automagically cache all of the linked pages -- download
the pages into a cache to be read later. Then, when
I'm not connected to the web, I can review the
headlines and, if I click on one, it pulls up the
cached page.

But here's another thorn: I want to keep the cached
articles as long as the feed is still stored in Bandit
- 1 month, 2 months, 1 quarter, etc.

Again, if there is already a way to do this, please
forgive me for not recognizing it.
