Thread: Am i doing something wrong?

  1. #1
    Im new to this whole newsgroups thing so go easy

    I have got grabit 1.5.3 and for example tried to get lost season 1 disk 2 (posted on this forum)

    It downloads articles but they are only empty text files (e.g. Lost.S1.D2.NTSC.DVDR-RiVERDVD -[005108] - riverdvd-lost.s1d2.r03 yEnc (198) (by anonymous@where.org (abdvdrcore)).txt)

    How can i actually download the rar files??

    Anyones help would be much appreciated.

    Empty files are generally caused by poor retention which in short maens that they are no longer on the server your using.

If you come to find that your ISP Usenet service is crap then you may want to consider a payserver like NewsHosting which is one of the best deals around. Of course if you do decide to signup with NewsHosting make sure to use our referral link at...
