Newsreader with a queue?

I currently use Xnews and I love it ... or at least I used to until my isp started limiting users to only two open connections at any given time. Since I can't d/l everything simultaneously, I would really love to be able to queue from multiple groups and just walk away. Unfortunately, Xnews only lets you queue from the current group.

Also, it would be handy if the program was smart enough to interrupt binary d/l to grab new headers or whatnot if you ask it to and then go about its business.

Does a better program exist?

I've been using Newsshark for a couple years now and like it. Fairly simple interface, but it does everything I need, including setting up a queue and leaving.

Are you looking just to download binaries? If so, Powergrab is a GREAT program...
