    I've recently heard of Usenet as a valuable resource for pretty much everything (especially the Xbox I'm modding) and I was wondering what the best client was for the Mac. How much difference does the client actually make? And how would I get myself started with these newsgroups?

    Web based USENET access is best IMHO.

    http://groups.google.com

    http://www.easynews.com $9.95/mo

    BTW: My first USENET posts that I can still find on Google Groups date back to 1992, and I was lurking for a few years before that.

    Ditto. It can be a bit confusing to use at first, but once you get used to it that won't be a problem for you. Just make sure you have Quickpar (parity check utility) and winrar (joining up the file parts).

    Unison is the best usenet client on any platform (that I have found) for binary files. www.panic.com/unison/
