I haven't.

You have to realize, the last time I was really into Usenet was well
over a decade ago. We used uuencode/decode to transfer binaries in
plain text format. I gave up on Usenet about the time AOL began
letting it's subscribers onto the Internet and the flaming became
ridiculous.

Within the last year or so I decided I'd get back into Usenet (for
binaries only - forget trying to engage in any sort of reasonable
conversation) and tried Binary News Reaper as it was supposed to
aggregate the multi-part postings into a single file for you
automatically. Either my ISP's news servers suck too bad or BNR sucks
because it never works very well and the process of searching and
finding complete postings through BNR is too labor intensive.

Sounds like Newsrover is a better piece of software...
