Who took the "moderated" off this group? There's all sorts of lamers posting in here now!! I hate it! TooLongUsingDosHack: I extract and download lotsa binaries. This *used* to take lots of time, because the newsserver is over a 28K8 link. So I have semi-automated the process: To log in, I press one key which sends my login, pause, passwd, pause, and the command "tin -f.binrc -S >/dev/null &" Then I run tin, irc or whatever and in the background tin puts all the newsgroups listed in ".binrc" into directories under ~/News/ When that's finished, I run my ".z" file, which uudecodes and deletes all the messages, then zmodem sends and deletes the decoded files. You probably all think it's lame, but I thought it was rather clever.. (And I just *know* someone's going to point out a switch in tin that does all this automatically.. it usually goes that way.)
