Hi all, first post and last night, first experience on using usenet and I have to admit, it's a point of no return from torrent (unless you're going to be short on cash!)
I did some researching first before trying usenet out, and the main points to consider on getting a premium usenet newsgroup is availability, speed, connection and retention. I'm pretty confused about the retention thing. Is the retention is for the storage of the say, binary applies to the newsgroup you applied, or the newsgroup where binary is initially uploaded?
For example, I have Newsgroup 1, 2, 3 with retention of 80, 100, and 200 respectively. If I posted something on Newgroup 2 and it's the 101th day already:
a) Newsgroup 3 can still have the binary and 1 and 2 doesn't
b) Newsgroup 3 can't have the binary since it expired in Newsgroup 2?
Thanks in advance!
