            I don't know what version I was previously using of BRAG. It wouldn't automatically decode my yenc files. It would throw an error after all downloads were over and then I'd have to manually run ydecode -R * in the 'unfinished' directory. Now I've upgraded BRAG to 1.4.x and it required that I install some other decoder thing. Now it works beautifully!! I love BRAG. I am scripting it as a cron job to get all howard stern recordings each day. Keep up the great work!
