Kendall, Florida, (November 16, 2001) — Eridanus Releases Baker 1.0.1:
RealBasic Usenet Utility for OS X

Eridanus today released Baker 1.0.1. Baker is a utility to simplify the
task of downloading files from Usenet newsgroups. Baker eliminates the
hassle by automating much of the process.

“Basically, all I do is enter my news server info, add the newsgroups I
regularly monitor, and click the Start button,” Mike Trivisonno of
Eridanus, Inc. said when describing how easy it is to configure a new Baker

“Of course, Baker’s support for multiple news servers, multiple
simultaneous connections, newsgroup cycling, and news server cycling is
nice to have when basic downloading options aren’t up to the task,”
Trivisonno said when describing some of the advanced features available in
the $35.00 program.

Trivisonno went on to mention some of the other treats that Baker has
cooked up for OS X users. Things like automatic assembly and decoding of
multipart files: even if the parts arrive out of order, days apart, or on
different servers. “Now I don’t even worry about finding all the parts. If
Baker gets all the parts, I get the file. Sometimes it can take days, for
example, to get all the parts of an mp3 file but I have been relieved of
the responsibility of tracking that kind of information. Baker does it for
me and does it quite well,” Trivisonno concluded.

Unregistered versions are fully functional but will occasionally display
reminders to register.
