I just bought a Mac Pro after years of using a PC, so now I'm on a quest to find programs.
I am not very familiar with Newsgroups, but I've used torrents plenty of times in the past for PC programs.
The problem is, torrents is no longer an option because for whatever reason, I am unable to download them now. I think it has something to do with my ISP because no matter what I do, I can't get a connection.
So now I'm trying Newsgroups. I signed up for Giganews and I've used several of the sites listed here to download certain programs.
But I have no idea how to turn them into working programs once they are downloaded. And I've done everything that I'm supposed to do.
I downloaded a program that came in a bunch of DMG files and I read that you can open them using the disk utility in Mac, but that didn't work.
I've also used SuperNZB to open NZB files, but that didn't work. It just seems that there are so many steps and things I need to download that I end up missing a step because I have made no progress.
When I did torrents, it was so easy. You get the programs, you use the crack, and off you go.
But I'm still on square one with Newsgroups.
