Can't you just ask the NTTP server for only the next 20 messages?

You could probably build a local cache of each message, and use that for any
repeated request...

    $message = get_cache($message_id);
    if (!$message){
      $message = get_nntp_message($message_id);
      store_cache($message_id, $message);
Exactly where/how you store the local cache is up to you.  Files, DB,

Actually, what you *MIGHT* find easiest is to simply install a news server
locally, carry the groups you want, and then have PHP talk to the local news

Then all the caching and expiring issues are taken care of, the news feed
download is automatic, and your PHP application will be talking to a LOCAL
news server, which should be way more faster.
