    Here's a quick tutorial...

    Download Unison, this will be your newsreader. There is a demo version, however you will want to purchase the full version for $25, it's $$$ well spent.

    http://www.panic.com/unison/d/Unison 1.6.2.dmg


    Next you are going to need a usenet provider, many ISP's include this with their service, check into it. I use www.newshosting.com, $15 a month for unlimited data transfer and 4 connections to the server. Panic (the makers of Unison) also offer a bundle that provides Unison plus 1 month of usenet for $29 which is a good way to kill 2 birds with one payment.

    Last, purchase a Newzbin subscription, it's not neccessary to use the newsgroups but definitely makes finding things much easier. It costs $2 a month and is money will spent.

    http://docs.newzbin.com/Newzbin:Premium_Membership


    Install Unison and configure it to use your desired usenet services. Browse for whatever you are looking for on Newsbin and download the header files for whatever you want to download. Double click on the downloaded headers (they should appear with the Unison "magnet" icon and Unison will automatically start downloading the binary files.
