    well, news.btopenworld.com/news.btinternet.com, under my adsl service are the only two servers provided for me, and theyre deplorable to say the very least, absolutely nothings complete, the retention is terrible its just plane mince. Im looking for the best free binary newsgroup server then, as mirc is too queued out for new releases, and bitt can lose seeders from time to time, im using newzbin pro, and its set up right...so it cant be the settings, but if anybody else on btbroadband can get one complete binary header ill eat everybodys hats

    in short whats the best free news group server for binary releases lol

    Why explain it that way, you should still complain, though some news servers just suck. Free you may not find, though some are ok at about $10 a month.

    ok, well, can you guys inspire me what to say to bt, the money grabbing communists. I cant phone up and say "hi, its a mr so and so here, just to tell you that the news group service provided under your servers is bollocks, not a single binary header is complete, and i cant download shit, you over charge, you provide little support and manipulate your customers with an array of complicated terms and conditions, then to top it off you tie them down to a year contract....."


    sorry...

    ps. fuck you

    Once again, the answer is to pay for a service. I pay $20 a month and I get a guaranteed retention of all binary groups for 14 days, all non-binary groups for 30 days. The connection is fed to me from a DS45 backbone, so I'm allowed 8 similtaneous connections each downloading between 240K-300K depending on the time of day.

    With that having been said, most large files, like movies/iso/image files are post with PAR files, which are used to create/repair broken archives. So if you download 80 RAR files, and two are missing/corrupt, you can re-create them with the PAR files. People create and post the PAR files because they know that people like you have newsgroups servers with shitty connections.

    Sticky?

    Well, its a free service, what do you expect? Besides, I believe they limit your bandwidth to 50mb/day or something. When you pay for a server, you can download as much as you want.
