    That's kinda like it operated many many years ago. *BUT* The "indexing" - "NZB" search sites have made that approach obsolete. I founded the website/group NewsGroupCentral back in the early 90's. I even charted the usenet group "alt.binaries.newsgroupcentral"

    We had a forum similar to this one. We shared amongst ourselves and placed our files in "our" own group. Once search sites starting popping up.......our work was easily pried open and the barn doors flew open. We did not believe [and still don't] in pass-wording uploads and took the approach that all files are public. Honestly.....we aren't personally responsible for 99% of the stuff we upload. We get our files from "someone".....and re-post. It's not a secret, the files you have are already in the hands of many others and all were doing is upping for public consumption. That's the position most take... and deal with it.

    Our forum got boring and useless as we determined self indulgence wasn't really all that cool. Todays usenet is better than ever, nothing hides in usenet. There are a couple of jerk-offs who password new movie releases....but within a day or so....those same files get freely
    propagated without any strings. The benefit of a forum like this is: we have an interest and are geeks about GPS. The files we upload are immediately distributed to this forum and we can only hope a couple of leechers will one day become up loaders. You're paying it forward ,look like it that way.

    So much information from Chilly to digest.
    I think this will leave us pondering for a few days before we realise what sense he is talking.
    I am all for this move but we need commitment from all/most uploaders before taking "the leap of faith".

    Im a dedicated NB user. Always have been. I've tried every single reader thats ever been released,
    and always find myself back to me roots.

    Even tho the app might look slightly daunting......you actually don't even mess with 90% of what ya see.

    Not aquainted with your mentioned server......shout at me if'n ya need some answers



    Finding newsbin pro shouldn't be too terribly difficult.....there's always a handfull of cracked
    versions floating about


    edit: jes checked out that server. For getting your feet wet......thats a great deal.
    If it functions properly.....and you've got the reader setup....you're gonna be golden.

    You should be in a position to tell all those here, what a piece of cake it was to git going.

    No faith needed. There's no kinda "ZEN"........no Kharma....involved.

    For a sec, lets totally forget GPS has anything to do with subscribing to the newsgroups.

    Myself , i'm a serious movie kinda guy. Being that i've got a kick azz quasi media room
    and a big arsed LCD panel........I gotsa keep that screen filled with 1080p content.
    Other than blu-ray disc themselves......the ONLY other way , is to get 1080p blu-ray files via usenet.
    Usenet has EVERY blu-ray release. The files are huge. 10-30 gigs per movie.
    I can download aprox 15 gigs per hour. You can't do that kinda speed on 90% of
    any P2P/torrent......and all the other zillions of file sharing sites.

    So a Dirt3 for PC comes along. Well, in a matter of less than one hour.....i'm playing

    MS releases a nw Office suite........thats at best , a 15 minute grab.

    People who maintain usenet accounts.....do for a simple reason, they can at the snap
    of a finger= download virtually ANYTHING

    Chilly you are preaching to the converted!
    As I said, I'm all in favour of this move. We just need to convince the others.
