What a shame. The most featured NNTP app ever has finally died (no good here either on Mavericks). I have routinely tried all the rest/newcomers, have even fallen in love with one, but nothing could match the feature set for my use.

And the bad thing is that the developer does nothing about it just as he did nothing for years when bugs were reported.

It is again a year later and still the same problems with crashing program and the developer gives no solution only a work-around.

In all these years no update!

I have now used this product for 2 years. There are many bugs but developer has not updated it for 2 years and (worse) does not react to any email.

So better stay away and spent your money elsewhere.

Several month ago I received an email stating there would soon be an update for 4.3 where the long existing problem of Hogwasher aborting all the time was solved.

I have still to see an update and get really fed up with at least 1 abort a month of this pogramm.

Most beta versions are more stable than this version 4.3 of Hogwasher!!!!!

This product should be avoided if you are using the Intel platform, as it crashes *very* frequently. My comments/information request to Asar yielded no result. I'm very disappointed that I plopped down $50 for this piece of, um, software. Unfortunately, I didn't yet know of the existence of Unison.

It must be nice to have 50 dollars to just throw away. I mean, I would have tested the software and similar applications before I "plopped down $50". I sure know I wouldn't admit what an ignorant decision I had made to everyone on the internet. But hey, that's just me.

Thanks for judging me. Actually I had tried the program before and had remnants of the software I couldn't locate in my home folder (I transferred my home folder from my PPC Mac to my Intel Mac). So when I attempted to 'evaluate' Hogwasher on my Intel Mac, it told me I had already done that, and I would have to purchase a license if I wanted to do that anymore. Since I didn't want to track down the stray file, I purchased it, thinking it would be OK.

I have to report that subsequent updates to OSX have fixed these issues; however, that does not change the fact that I got 0 reply from Asar.

I'll leave the judging up to God. The rest is open to public humiliation.
