hi, just wondering if you can reccommend some OS X alternatives to the following applications: Newsleecher WinRAR Archiver QuickPar i used to use newsleecher to download material which i'd opened from a .nzb (NewzBin file). i'm positive that 9 times out of 10 i was left with .RAR's as opposed to .ZIP's. so can .RAR's be extracted by program's other than WinRAR? also i used an OS app called Unison as an alternative to Newsleecher for a while. but my newshosting account enables me to 8 conncections, but Unison has no preference settings for me to determine how many connections my newshosting account entitles me to. i hope this doesn't sound like complete tosh, and to those that understand what i'm on about understand the processes i'm after can in-turn recommend the right software. thanks in advance.
