Best USENET Newsreader for Binaries?

Posted:
in Mac Software edited January 2014
I like usenet for binaries (I still haven't figured out torrents!). I've seen MT-NewsWatcher... is that the best?



I use OSX 10.4.



Also, what do you use to combine files (like file.avi.001, .002...)?

    Wow. Never heard of that.



    I use NewsLeecher on XP. Sweet stuff because you can search all of USENET for what you want.



    I wish that there was something like this for OSX. MT-NewsWatcher looks like Agent (for XP).

    To join files I use Catenator which is free and which is here

    You mean like "cat file.avi.00* >file.avi" from a shell prompt?

    Actually, yeah, that's what I do too... I could never be bothered with a separate app for that.
