Thread: Finding stuff on Newsgroups

  1. #1
    Where's the best place on newsgroups to find the newest mp3 releases put out? I've just started using newsgroups, so sorry if I didn't ask that question exactly right.

    I am using RR newsgroup right now since I am new to it. If I were to get UseNet, would their servers would have more recent releases than the RR servers?

    Usenet providers servers share all the same files between their servers. Within seconds of a file being uploaded to a Giganews server for example it will be available on other NSP's servers.

    I do not understand what your query is about as stated above basically newsgroups are what makes up usenet. I have never heard of RR newsgroup. For the purposes of what we are interested all newsgroup are named in a hierarchy. We like the alt.binaries.******* categories.

    Ahh I'm sorry, I should have clarrified that. RR = Road Runner news server (My ISP). But if they update at just about the same rate, I think the RR news server will do fine for now.

    How are the speeds with Road runner? Is it more like usenet or like dsl, charter -ect?

    I had RR, I got my full speed which was 600 kb/s.

    All the time.

    But at that point the binary retention was like 2 days
