NewsGroup virgin. Need a little advice.
    #11329808 - 10/27/09 07:51 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

So my dick friend who is quite techie, and has worked on comps for years has always bugged me about getting files before they're out on torrent sites etc...
And about how quickly he downloads torrent related files.....let alone newsgroup stuff. So I'm sitting here, trying to get X-News to run.

I solved my first stupid problem......
I was entering newsGROUPS as newsSERVERS, and I was confused at why there was so little....in fact, nothing, to find.

So now that I've got the embarrassing mistake out of the way.
I've been doing some reading, and I'd like to know what newsservers you guys would recommend, and what groups.
I would like to especially find docs, movies, and games. Maybe some porn as well...
But I really have a lot anyway. PureTNA.com covers my porn needs nicely. But suggest away.

BTW...For others......
I found this useful....

For a usenet virgin, I wouldn't reccomend Xnews.  I would reccomend you familiarize yourself with nzbs first, then once you get the hang of it you can start exploring the actual groups themselves.  I would check out altbinz as a good free nzb client. This link will explain it better than I can, so you should give that a glance over.

Basically, an NZB is the usenet equivalent of a .torrent file.  You download it from an nzb site like nzbmatrix 

It will open up in the client and start downloading automatically.

I assume you already know you need a server.  You might get a free one from your isp, but it will probably be shitty.  I pay 8 bucks a month for astraweb, unlimited download, pretty good deal.

And yes, usenet is the tits on ice!  Maxes your dl speed every time you use it, fuckin awesome.  I get a 2 hour movie in under 10 minutes.  DOnt give up if it seems complex at first!

www.newzbin.com = NZB files
www.news.astraweb.com/ = news server
www.newsleecher.com = NZB client

--
Thats all you need.

I prefer newsbin for a client.
Grabit is a good beginners client.

Puretna is great, yes.  But look into binaries and check out newzxxx  Its the free sister site of newzbin.com and will have everything you can imagine.
