Just a curiousity, do you have Perl on your system?  If so, look for
"aub" (or
email me if you can't find it).  It will peice together multi-part postings and
decode them into binaries for you.  It will do this for whatever newsgroups you
want.  It is also easily customizable to allow for some decision making on what
you are willing to decode.

ObHack:  Email; I can't think of anything recent worth
