Thread: Newb question

  1. #1
    Betcha guys just love these, don't you? :p

    Anyway, I'm trying to switch over from torrents, because frankly.. this is just better. But anyway, I've already used up my monthly quota apparenly from my ISP.. which was already like, 1 gig. I've done a ton of searching for good free servers but have come up empty handed. I can connect to some, but none of the downloads actually WORK. Does anyone know of any? Thanks.

    People will not normally post re free servers as generally they have a short shelf life. However there is a very good server that has been posted here. I suggest you read the forum a little more

    In general the free servers don't cover the binaries groups where you will be doing most your downloading from. This is because the large amount of bandwidth / storage required and cost associated to this. The best bet as others have said is just signup for giganews or the like - though it does cost it will save you a lot of time and hassle in the end. Not to mention be a lot faster too

    Some servers have a free trial that doesn't require credit cards. Look around the forum, there are few posted. There is one called Xlned that have a 7 day trial with no dl limit (Windy posted a while ago ). If you are new to newsgroups, give it a shot, there may be incomplete issues with it.

    Make sure that you dont pay for a newsgroup service to find that your ISP caps you. Change ISP first if thats the case.
