    Hey guys,

    I'm new to Usenet am on Mac OS 10.4 - Tiger.

    For those of you who still use Tiger, or who remember using Tiger - do you have recommendations on what a good usenet reader is?

    I've heard of Thoth
    I've heard of Igrabnews

    Does anyone have a recommendation of what they've enjoyed using?
    (Yes, I will be using this thing called NZB files, on occasion).

    I use Panic's Unison. The current version, 2.0, is 10.5+ only, but they still have the previous version version (1.8.1) available for download here (under the header "I can't run the new Unison."), and even older versions from their museum page.

    It costs $29. For me it is worth it, specially for its support for NZB files. You should download it and try it out.

    SABnzbd+ is what the OP wants since he's interested in using nzb files.

    And it's free.:)

    Hey, thanks for these suggestions. I'll check some of these out and compare.

    A coworker just clued me into the use of newsgroups. Pretty sweet. Thanks again.
