Good & Fast newgroup picture sucker reader. On my ISP it sucks down 2 photos at a time, and does so very quickly. I can fill up a folder with thousands of images in a very short time. Crashy, sometimes, but worth it. This newsgroup picture extractor is the best I've seen so far for OS X. Looking forward to future versions!

Goes through the motions of downloading, however, the files cannot be found - they do not download to the specified folder.

I thought it was donwloading groups as well. The fact is they are downloading in the background (there are no visual clues that something is bveing downloaded unless you look at the queues tab)
