If no settings are detected, Usenet Radio imports Binary Boy's settings and server list.
Usenet Radio now has its own settings files so that changes can be made without affecting Binary Boy.
Server editor is in. Edit or remove existing servers. "Add" isn't working yet.
When group lists are imported from Binary Boy they are saved in a new XML based format with the extension .urlst. These are editable with an ordinary text editor such as Notepad.

Server editor can add servers.

Group list editor added. Although the program itself still uses only one server per group for now, the group list editor supports "Virtual Groups" that can contain feeds from multiple server/newsgroup combinations. If you've been interested in multi server support, you should check out the editor and leave me some feedback while it's still in development. A very similar feature will be added to BB 2.0.
Save and Save As commands are disabled in this build so you can edit without breaking anything.
The log is disabled
A sample group list and master list are now installed if none already exist.
The hotkey for Stop is now Ctrl+T and the previous key, Ctrl+S, is now assigned to Save.

Fixed a problem with the reg key system. If you couldn't unlock the program, install this build, get your new key from the control panel and try again.
And this after I FINALLY succumbed to the offer :)
Weird. The file is visible by ftp and the URL looks ok but it downloads as 0 bytes. I'm looking into it.
