Thread: Article not found message

  1. #1
    Hello all.. Im new to the Newsgroup movement and have hit a stumbling block. Im using (soon to be moving to newshosting) as well as Newzbin for search and Grabit for dl's. I was able to download some vids but as of late everything I try to get comes back with a Article not found. The downloads look like they are going to start and they stop. Start and stop all without really doing anything then I get "Article no found" I've heard this happens occasionally but I have not been able to get anything lately. I usually choose headers that have comments about the vid to see if it's legit.. Am I doing something wrong?
