good usenet client with nzb support?


I am looking for a good usenet client with nzb support. I have used klibido for quite some time, but am getting annoyed with a specific bug and a lack of a feature. For some reason it randomly stops my downloads and says my disk space is full when its not, then i have to rm -fr .klibido and reset everything and continue, else it won't work.

Regardless, Klibido doesn't allow you to import multiple .nzb at once, which is extremely annoying.

So I'm looking for another good usenet client which can allow you to import multiple .nzb by highlighting them or maybe have it monitor a directory and add import them as I add them?

Console based client is also fine, it doesn't need to have a GUI ... in fact a console based app might be better

i'm using hellanzb right now. It's a python app which support mulitple nzb's and does the complete trick with nzb's. Not a real usenet client, but a decent nzb "reader"

i've used klibido for about a year and haven't experienced the bug you mentioned at all. the ability to select multiple .nzb from the open dialog would be nice, though.
