So I've been looking around some news groups lately and I have found some interesting things, but I asm wondering why when I click on some posts that are either jpg or mpeg posts all i see is jibberish? Any one know what I'm talking about? Example:

=ybegin part=10 total=16 line=128 size=10000000 name=cd3.part17.rar
=ypart begin=5760001 end=6400000

Well, I figured it out, yEnc encodeing, had to find a news reader that supported it. Anyone know of a free one that works?

If you are looking at binaries, then get a binary newsgroup reader, Here are some binary and normal newsgroup readers that have brief descriptions and pricing.

I use NewsLeecher, but I paid the money for the software, its supersearch subscription, and access to a newserver w/ good rentention and speed.
