Thanks! I'm hoping this gets used and it's a common ground for people to post/find things since the github issue list just wasn't cutting it ;)

PS. I changed the subject since in your haste you mistyped (Mlyar)

haha yeah my typos are getting worse and worse as I get busier in life.

I was concerned it's too much fracturing: you have the original thread, then you have the github, now here. But I'm sure you're probably right.

To resurrect an old thread, I also just wanted to say: Thanks, evilhero!

I used to get into comics big-time way, way back in my high-school and college days, then my reading fell by the wayside as I moved on to the working world of "grown-ups". :P

Many years and one Internet revolution later, I found out about Usenet's comics groups and started grabbing CBZs/CBRs here and there, but it was a pain to have to interactively wade through thousands of newsgroup posts and manually grab the binaries (often missing issues). And trying to keep those downloads organized and named correctly was so much work.

Then I discovered Mylar, and the rest is history. :D

Granted, I know Mylar isn't perfect, and there are plenty of features myself and others would like to see, but it's a damn sight better than the old-school ways. And evilhero is doing his best to work with a Usenet scene that can be difficult to follow in its release methods and issue naming.

So, thanks again!
