PicMonger is a GUI-driven app that scans a specified Usenet newsgroup for binary attachments. Any attachments encoded with uuencode or in MIME-base64 format are decoded into the current working directory. Lists of frequently used servers and groups are saved on a per-user basis and easily accessed/edited via the GUI. HTML preview pages (like contact sheets) can be automatically generated on the fly. PicMonger also remembers where you were between sessions so scanning resumes where you left off.
