Its coming along :)

Sorry I don't have anything useful to show yet. Been trying to trace weird bugs that only occur after the part that collects header information runs for several hours. Things like one poster used a single digit for hours in their timestamp. Really?

So anyway, I'm working on it. Thanks for your support though. I really appreciate it.

This is a great idea. AlterEgo and Sidekick are great names, go with one of those. I think that I prefer Sidekick as it connects to both the comic world, and the function of the program.

I'd be happy to help you with web design and any front end design help you need. I'm essentially waiting for something like this to happen so that I can get back into, and stay into, comics.

Contact me on twitter (same name, tigerdactyl), or reply here, if I can help with anything.

Thanks tigerdactyl. I'll definitely be in need of someone who can do graphics design.

Ok, I think I've settled on a name thats completely different: Omniverse. A couple of reasons is this is the description that I found on Wikipedia:
Originally according to The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe 2004, "the omniverse is the collection of every single universe, multiverse, dimension (alternate or pocket) and realm.[8] This includes not only Marvel Comics, but also DC Comics, Image, Dark Horse, Archie, TMNT, Harvey, and every universe ever mentioned or seen (and an infinite amount never mentioned or seen) including our own world. Everything is in the Omniverse, and there is only one Omniverse." According to the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Alternate Universes, "It includes every single literary, television show, movie, urban legend, universe, realm, etc. ever".

Considering that usenet is a collection of every single comic book scanned (give or take a few depending on retention), I think the name Omniverse fits really well.

Also, the name isn't that common so would make it easier to find in a web search -- assuming I end up writing something worth searching for :S

This weekend I'll setup a Github depository and upload what code I have so far. This first release is strictly for the early adopters/testers. This doesn't do any downloading or creation of nzbs yet. For those who have the time to try it, I'm mainly looking for how well it works with your usenet provider.
