    Yeah, upgrades are free. They may change an upgrade fee for full version upgrades (current version is 1.8.1 but they may charge for 2.0 when/if it's released). Panic is a good company.

    Been using Unison for some time but something just hit me. Where the hell do you tell it do have multiple connections? Not multiple files being downloaded but multiple connections..............can't seem to find that option.

    I used MT-newswatcher like a decade ago, I think it's still around

    I still can't find anything decent on newsgroups

    Are you talking about connecting to multiple different newsgroup servers at once? If so, Unison cannot do that.

    No that is multiple files being downloaded at once. I want multiple connections to the usenet provider.
