Default Latest Threads Module?

Has anyone done a latest threads module... or anything that will list threads based on some criteria in a module?

I was really looking for latest, but I'll look at the top module and see if it is base for what I want to do. Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply... I guess I had tried it in the past and for some reason didn't get what I was looking for... must have been user error. I'm still trying to figure out if I ant to use vBa for my main product page, or GARS... there are tradeoffs both ways. If I can get it to work with GARS, it will definitely be better in a lot of ways. One big one is I can have a vBa page to select my devices (or a forumview/GARS page also). Here is a test page in vBa that is what I'm trying to build...
http://pdaphonehome.com/?page=i760

The first two blocks are both using modified versions of the cmps-gars block from the Add-On list here. Trying to modify the Top module to actually render some content from the other threads I am guessing would be kind of difficult. Ironically I wanted to add a block to the sample page there that would list only the titles in a tight configuration, which is what TopX does. Have you ever seen anyone modify TopX to show much more information?

Just for comparison, also using a hacked up version of the cmps-gars add-on, this is a selection page in vBa. http://pdaphonehome.com/index.php?page=learn2

It might be easiest to just replace the url in this selection with a custom GARS field that contains the url of the vBa page for that device. I'm actually using the GARS article just as a user review page in that scenario... so I have a bunch of custom fields for the GARS type, but I never show them except in the vBa page.
