    Excellent work on this. I never expected to have such a hard time finding a good desktop usenet client when I switched to Linux (I don't like browser-based clients). Very thankful to have this. It works great

    HelloNZB is free and, though it’s rather simple, it does get the job done. It even has a web server built into it, so you can access the program remotely, if you wish. It has other features built into it that make it surprisingly versatile, considering that it costs nothing and does a lot of what some paid options out there will gladly charge you for..

    Small, portable and easy to use. Pity it stores the password in the windows registry in plain text though. Doh!
