B-News (or bommanews) was developed to lift the weight of the overhead inherent to UUEncode and Base64 encoding: it uses a new encoding method to stuff binary data in text messages. This method eats more CPU resources, but it manages to lower the loss from approximately 40% for UUEncode to 3.5% (the decimal point between those digits is not dirt on your monitor), while still avoiding the use of ANSI control codes in the message body.B-News Plus is the ultimate extension to B-News. It is a binaries poster/downloader for usenet. Key new features are: support for yEnc, timed download-upload, auto resume after errors, CRC checking, repairing of post
