Hi all,


I have a PeeCee runing xnews, which downloads from time to time stuff from Usenet.... but do I have something like this on the OS X ? something that can decode yEnc files ? something that can easily be understood by mere mortals ?


TIA. :miner:

Hogwasher or Unison are the best I've found-- although I mostly use Newsleecher on the PC and just transfer any files I've downloaded to the Mac over the network.

I like OSXNews. It's not as mature and stable as Unison but it's free and open-source.
