I think it's possible with gnus, although that apparently means using emacs. I don't think gnus can grab binaries, though.

You may have specified an unmatched group of requirements here:
- text-based
- ssl
- grab binaries


you'd think in this day that wouldn't be hard. there are a number of programs that do it, but I think only for mac/windows.

ok. just grab binaries and ssl. there is a way to setup pan + stunnel to do that i think.

however, looking at dr willy's suggestion above, it appears that nzbget satisfies text + ssl + binary grabber.

It's a text-based nntp binary grabber with ssl, but I don't think it's a newsreader. I thought you said you needed a newsreader with those features.

i joined a news group. seems to be working well. I paid 25 USD for 180 gigs (they have a 50USD/terabyte deal also). I don't actually download much. I figure that will last me a year or so. the only piss off was that I also had to pay 7 USD for an nzbmatrix subscription. I am using pan + stunnel (for ssl encryption). works well.

I would use nzbget, but it isn't in the ubuntu repository for 10.04 (or whatever is on that computer). but it is for later ubuntus. maybe I should upgrade to 12.04LTS on that machine. I have been hesitant because it does the minimal job or running xbmc quite well, and I have been meaning to get a dedicated media box that is low wattage (I think my old laptop is 500 watts or so).

You will need parchive or similar to repair corrupted files.

I frequent are they? I don't seem to have downloaded any yet (I assume they wouldn't work if they were corrupted).

Not frequent. But if you have just downloaded, say, a 350mb file, downloading 15% of that in par2 files (which should come with any multipart rar archive file) or less is worth it.

Thanks for the tip on parchive. Got some errors and it repaired them.

Some genius came up with that program. I love it when programs I have never heard of work out of the box.
Ugly command line tools too. They rock.

I can't seem to find a comprehensible how to on this program. Do you know of one.

I am wondering how does it correspond with the UK data privacy laws.. Though won't be surprized - if someone wants to spot users of pirat copies - this is the place to be ..
