funky thats for bit torrent.

What you want to get is a program like grabit.  Its specifically made for getting files and not reading.  Or news bin is another program people seem to like.  The most important thing about grabben files off a newsgroup is a good news server.  Your isp usually provides one, some are better then others.  Some have short post retention, download limits, and they just loose lots of posts.

Once you get grabit going you will have to put in your news server information and a login if you have to use it.  After you get that tell grabit to get a full list of groups.  After you get a list i usually like to sort the binaries(where you will find files) by #of posts.  Find some with stuff you would be interested in and get subscribe to that group.  Once its subscribed it should be in the left panel thing of newsgroups where you can right click and tell it to get a list of all posts.

Once you find something you want to download in grabit it will normally be split up into multiple RAR files.  They are usually numbered in numerical order and will have a 1/80 marker on them.  The one is the file number and the 80 being how many total files are in the rar set.  Highlight all the rar files and it will tell you how many are selected at the bottom of the screen.  If there isnt 80 or whatever the total amount of files there are your news server is missing some files.  Normally people post parity files to rebuild missing files.  Normally for ever file your missing you will need 1 parity file to rebuild it.  Parity files are the .par files and par2.  Smart Par and Easy par are the apps to rebuild missing files.

Most games you will find will be cd images of some sort.  I would recommend nero to burn them as it handles almost all files, except for some alochol 120% files which i hate that prog.

Bit torrent is also a good resource, but i can usually pull steady 400kb/s from my news server and bit torrent is usually slower and not constant.  For a bit torrent client i would recommend Yet another bit torrent clien(ABC).  The normal bit torrent software is crap.

I hope that makes sense as im quite stoned :smile:
