I wish to have a flat view of 10 or so news articles in a block for my home page.
The news module display is exactally what I am looking for, but it does not have a block.
Can someone suggest another module that can do this, or help me in a hack to allow my news to be displayed in a block?

Neither allow me to have a flat view of multiple articles.

I've been waiting for something like this for a long time, a module that can take a list of chosen stories by story ID, rather than just one or the last xx stories and display them in a block along with a thumbnail:
http://www.newshax.com

(See the "Nightly News" right panel in light blue)

Spotlight comes close but can only do one article AFAIK now. Currently I have to do it manually which is a chore but I am more than happy to share the html I use if you like, until hopefully someone with more skills than I decides to attempt this for real.

Nice site! Good read too
Thanks for the offer, but I am set on a block.
I've got to learn sometime, and now is it!
I will post back here if I dont give up before it is finished.

Any help anyone could offer on my task would be greatly appreciated.
