i have been hearing for some time now about how great usenet is, and how bad bit torrent is, so i have signed up to giganews and have been on it with newsbin.
lured in by talk of great content, great speeds, etc etc. well the speed is great, but as far as i can tell there is simply nothing worth downloading.
i have downloaded lots of film and movie group headers, which has taken 12+ hours @ 8mbs (ie i have downloaded a lot), and what do i have ?
a few films i have never heard of, a few rubbish films, a million requests that are all the same, and maybe 2 mediocre films worth watching.
am i doing something wrong here ? or is there really just nothing out there ?
mininova etc maybe slow, but at least you could find what you wanted most of the time.
