From discussion w/ ech. at CCC:

Initial news goes away too quickly, replaced by actual fetched news after a short period (5-10 min. random?). Delay that more at first install, and/or have some way to see the initial news again? Many many people don't set up their browser proxy settings in first 5 minutes then don't know how and lost the link from the news. Is the link in the help and faq?

News system was reworked to save old entries, and /news page was added, in 0.9.23. That page is linked from the 'show all news' link at the bottom of the news section when expanded. However, initial news was not shown on that page because it's a pseudo-news entry in the code.

Added code to always show the initial news at the bottom of the /news page, with a timestamp of the first-installed date, in 2a7dfc868f1ce6c449e3ca3670d7319569df8c8d 0.9.27-9
