    12 days isn't that bad, if you stay on top of what you need and get it as it's released, up to and including 12 days later. If you want better speeds and better retention I'd go for a premium server like Newshosting.

    There's a referral link here if you do decide to go with them

    No, NH is purely a newsgroups server used for bandwidth.

    Use indexing sites to find what you're after...

    NZB Zone (http://www.nzbzone.com/)
    NewsReactor (http://www.newsreactor.net/)
    DVDRs (http://www.dvdrs.net/) - Site Offline At Present - Upgrading Apparently
