I'd suggested FTP because it not only solves the scheduled download issue, but there are also some good Palm clients (I use VFSFTP) that would make downloading these with a PDA a lot easier than using NetFront or another browser.
As a bonus, if users received individual logins to the FTP server (same as their login here perhaps?) it would be possible for admins to monitor/cap bandwidth usage.
Just my .02

Alexander, yes, this is a good idea indeed. I've been searching the internet to find references of a successful Palm and Nokia 6610 GPRS set up using the IR connection. If and when I can make it work, then with this collection, it will be like watching news on the hour every hour.

Thanks for the compliments, cactusjack. The service will be free, to everyone who is participating in the forum. So far, everyone with +20 posts or who has been contributing in other ways received a private login. This is not meant to be 'elitist', but to serve two purposes. A) To keep it private (don't want to stumble over copyright issues by making this public), B) To keep traffic to a minimum. As far how we will go forward with this... I am not exactly sure. I will definitely add more scoops to it. We will see how the other parts of the new sites (on which I am still working) will go.

Alex, thanks for the update - it all sounds very exciting. Can you tell us which scoops are 'Coming Soon To A PC Near You'?
Also, what new sites are you working on? All this time you spoke of new sites I assumed you meant the move to mobileread from turcic. Is there more PDA related stuff to come?

melvyn,

as you noticed correctly turcic.com became mobileread.com. But beside the name change, I am planning to do a complete site makeover. New features, new layout, etc. I am very excited about these changes and have been working on them for the past few months. I think soon I will be able to make them public.

About the scoops... I am going to add those scoops that are of interest to most of us. I haven't planned any specific ones yet, but NYT is definitely going to be one of them.

Okay, so I got my Palm 515 working with my 6610 GPRS. Which means, I second Captainao's suggestion for the FTP option. Wouldn't it be nice, Sunday morning, go to your favorite Coffee Shop, fire-up the Palm/6610 contraption, FTP to your site. While the coffee is still brewing, I can already be enjoying the latest hot-off-the-press happenings. Sunday comic strips? Probably asking too much. But, hey, it's great stuff you're doing here. Really appreciate it.

just curious since I don't have a wifi/gprs-capable pda yet... isn't it possible to fetch the scoops also from WWW instead of FTP?

Well, the problem I encountered is that the site requires user and password authentication. Since I'm using a freeware web browser, I don't know, if at all, a way to send the user/pw tokens. I enter the url and it replies with an error message authentication required. The user/pw panel doesn't come up to allow me to enter name/pw. I don't quite understand how to use Palm's Web Clipping, which may be the way to do it.

BTW, I'm using a Nokia 6610 GPRS phone, connected to the M515 via IR. I have WAP/GPRS account with StarHub in Singapore.

Can you try it like this, perhaps it works:

Nope. Doesn't work. The browser I used, Sedaka and Matrix, will throw me to Google when I enter the URL as you suggested. Let browse around, should be a way to pass username and password, or perhaps, I need to install another module.

So what's new with the scoops? Are you planning to add more?

Yes - I was just too preoccupied bringing out the new version of mobileread.com. Now I should have more time again to play with the scoops.
