Files on Usenet are encoded with UUEncode, YEnc, BinHex, B64. You'll need a
decoding library... nSoftware's IPWorks has one, but it's commerical.

To connect to a NNTP you can use the standard socket library, nSoftware
IPWorks, or Index Socket Library (free).

Do you have a link for the Index Socket Library? I can't find any
information on that.

Forgive me if this is something obvious.

Typo, should be Indy Socket Library.
