Get your news-binaries

Modular Dreams has released a tool for fetching binaries from USENET. Their Binary News Blitter is a PM program that lets you get all those pictures from various newsgroups. It can handle multi-part images and can avoid getting cross-posted images more than once. A free demo is available.

An alternative to Blitter is Binary Newsreader (BNR) by Ralf Christen that now is updated to version 1.29. BNR is a PM application as well. A difference to Blitter is that you can post articles with BNR. More information here.
