    I use
    Newshosting.com for my usenet access
    Unison to browse newgroups/download nzb's (i think it's better than newsleecher on windows)
    and MacPar to do the parring/extracting of the files

    Does Unison have anything like Newsleecher's Supersearch service? I've become addicted to it and have forgotten any other way of finding nzbs.

    Right now I just launch newsleecher through Parallels and download files into a shared OSX folder. :coold:

    Unison is freakin' sweet for music though.

    I use Newsleecher through Parallels too.

    I tried Unison for a bit and its not bad but I think Newsleecher is far better.

    supersearch > *

    With 60+ day retention on servers, I can find damn near anything I want in seconds. No hunting through torrents, no ratios, no SHARING.
