    Hi all,

    New to Mac, I use 'Newsbin Pro' on the PC and wondered if there is a similar app for the mac??

    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi martin1000,

    And many thanks for your reply.

    The newsreader I am looking for is to use with Usenet. :eek:

    Thanks again.

    For mainly binary stuff I highly recommend Unison from Panic.

    Many thanks for the replies guys, I’ll give Unison a go! :)

    Another couple of questions. :eek:

    1. Is there any restrictions on what newsgroups you can access with Unison.

    2. How do you guys deal with .par files on a Mac.

    TIA

    No restrictions that I know of. For par files, search for MacPar and Split & Concat.

    Restrictions will be based on your newsgroup provider.

    There's MacPar or something like that... Just do a search on google.
