I use Pan under Linux and that works very well. Maybe they have a Windows version.

I like Newsbin.


--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

You have to find out whether your ISP has a decent newsfeed. They might not offer the groups that carry xbox games, they may carry the group, but the posts might be very incomplete.
Most people that are really into the newsgroups pay for a dedicated newserver, like www.newsguy.com or www.giganews.com.
All these companies do is provide usenet service, so it will be better than what most isps offer their subscribers.

On a windows platform I use:

X-News (newsreader)
Quickpar (for rebuilding corrupt .rar files)
Daemon Tools (for mounting disc ISOs on your PC)
Alcohol 120% (for burning ISOs to CD/DVD)

I'd recommend a giganews account as well, you get unlimited bandwidth for $24.95 a month, which you can download at more or less the maximum speed of your connection. :smile:

For a well written guide to usenet have a look  here
