There is also an external SCSI drive, and I have verified there is a drive inside the CPU.

cvtbatch - convert Usenet batch file to INN format
cvtbatch [ -w items ]
Cvtbatch reads standard input as a series of lines, converts each line, and writes it to standard output. It is used to convert simple
batchfiles that contain just the article name to INN batchfiles that contain additional information about each article.
Each line is taken as the pathname to a Usenet article. If it is not an absolute pathname, it is taken relative to the spool directory,
/var/spool/news. (Only the first word of each line is parsed; anything following whitespace is ignored.)
-w The ``-w'' flag specifies how each output line should be written. The items for this flag should be chosen from the ``W'' flag
items as specified in newsfeeds(5). They may be chosen from the following set:
b Size of article in bytes
f full pathname of article
m article message-id
n relative pathname of article
If the input file consists of a series of Message-ID's, then use grephistory(1) with the ``-s'' flag piped into cvtbatch.
