Hi there all =)
May I recive a warm welcome and well lets get to it!
As you can see, I am new here at filesharingtalk I really like the site and I'm not new to a lot of the stuff ppl are talking about here. I am definetly new at the whole usenet bizz, so I hope you will help me out a little...
I have been reading up on usenet for the last days and used a lot of time to get, somewhat, to the bottom of it.
I would like to understand it, so I can get the best of it, instead of relying on indexing sites. I wanna go into the jungle myself and understand what headers are and how I find or use groupnames on my own...
A)I've been seeing a lot of talk about these headers and how I should learn to look for them or at them, but I can't seem to find a nice clean explanation of WHAT or WHERE it exactly is or how I use it, like in totally noob perspective, it might just be a "stupid" question, but in my world there are no stupid question, only ppl who do not understand and really want to
ppl have a tendency to forget, what it was like, when they was all noobish
I have also come across a lot of forums and especially here, where ppl are talking about a.b.dvd or a.b.multimedia and talking about usenet groups and how one are supposed to look out after headers and those groups, but once again, how, explained to a noob, nevertheless a fast-learning noob, so I don't have to
I use newshoting and newsleecher. Have been experimenting with newsleecher and found it to be very comprehensive, since I started out with grabit.
B)What I found out so far is that I can get a complete list of groups (A LOT) and see them in my newsleecher. So I experiment and try to put in a.b.dvd or some groupname that rls nice dvd rls and it do not find it in quick search, what do I not understand, is it because I should look elsewhere or use other methods ?
C)Another question: Are the grouplist in my newsleecher, when I am connected to my newshost, only listing the groups on my newshost? Does this mean, I can't download or find rls rlsd at other newshosts or is usenet totally connected, if something is available at a newshost or on usenet, its teoretically available to everyone who has a newshost, that is, if they can find it ???
This is turning into a long lone, but why not, I allways think of it beeing helpfull to some other noob, since noob-thoughts are often alike
I know I can subscribe to the groups I see, go into them, but all I see if just a lot of files, that I can't make a lot off, but something is telling me I should...
All cooked down, what I want to know is, how do I get down and dirty on my own useing usenet the oldschool header-search-find kinda way (saying there is one ), caus I feel I am reading about it, between the lines, but I need some puzzles to make it complete...
I hope you wil help me out
Damn, I must really be stupid, since no one will help me or should I just be patient
