Binbot is an easy-to-use newsreader for downloading binaries from Usenet. It was designed to browse large binary newsgroups efficiently, and to download huge files quickly. It supports all common article encodings, multiple servers, and NZB files. It also includes built-in access to Web-based Usenet search engines, and automatic unrar, unzip, and unsplit capabilities.
Juta (Java Usenet Traffic Analyzer) is a Java (1.2 or higher) command line program that reads a text file with Usenet postings, and creates an HTML file with statistical information of those postings. This includes a list of the longest threads, authors with most postings, operating systems and newsclients used, and more. The inclusion of person-related information can be turned off to ensure privacy. The program is distributed as an executable JAR that also contains the source code. Also included in the distribution are several tools to process news postings: sort and count them, remove duplicates, list information on postings, grep and filter them.
YAJNGI (Yet Another Java NewsGroup Inspector) is a client-side service that allows you to keep tabs on a set of newsgroups without having to read constantly. You will be alerted only when the configuration finds your match. YAJNGI inspects a set of Usenet newsgroups using a perfect keyword, a regexp, or any phrases that you choose. It is multi-threaded and permits a different scan interval and actions for each group. It could be used to monitor newsgroups for your name, product, your favorite arguments, for downloading your favorite newest pictures or binary files, or any other topic of interest.
