Thread: Is SuperSearch worth it?

    Question Mark

    I'm fairly new to UseNet, and am looking into SuperSearch.

    I have Alt.Binz 0.28.3, but I'm convinced SS isn't working properly in it, as it hardly finds anything(or I'm doing something wrong).

    I've tried using the keygen for 3.9 of Newsleecher by FFF. That just tells me that the Giganews referral can't be verified or something, I assume the keys are related to that special offer Giganews has.

    So is it worth it at all to fork out the cash for Newsleecher+SuperSearch?

    You have to use the keymaker with Newsleecher not alt.binz (even though Alt.binz is just a shitty buggy old Newsleecher beta anyway), but the keys from FFF are only valid in NL, it's keys specifically to register NL and register SS...but SS could go at any time, it's only a mtter of time before Giganews or the like make a block of some sort.

    And yes SS is worth it for me, 'cause I'm not paying for it. As for the money, no I would not buy it, you will get faster "search times" wth it, like for instance Lost will show up in SS about 15-20 minutes after it airs, and in Binsearch about 5 minutes later, so eh, personal taste I guess, but some people swear by SS, I do, only because it's free at least for now.

    I think NL is the best client on the market, it's up to you if you decide NL is worth it or not, but the search engines will suit just fine, it takes them a few extra minutes to catch up, but it's not that much of a difference. But SS definately makes searching much easier.

    I wasn't using the keygen with Alt.Binz.

    But somehow it worked when I reinstalled NL, and SuperSearch does indeed seem useful. Now if only I could stream video using NL. I guess I'll just make an NZB using NL and open it in Alt.Binz to stream.

    I am, I'd watch calling people idiots, them idots are known to be physco paths and shit Alt.binz is based off an old NL buggy beta, don't believe me, just ask around. It's even posted in both NL and Alt.binz forums...one of the dev's of NL left the company for some reason and started Alt.binz from a NL beta. You don't see how erie similiar Alt.binz is to NL?

    Alt.Binz doesn't look very similar to NewsLeecher in my opinion and I bet you can't give me a link that proves what you have said.

    I found it one of those threads, can't remember which one, but I have no reason to lie, I use Alt.binz too, but it was designed from a NL Beta years ago.

    It's also been talked about and mentioned here at FST.

    True Story

    If you need more proof, start a thread at the NL forums and ask. Now Alt.binz may not look like NL, but if you look at the features from the very first release is based on NL's code base. Now there is a article in one of those forums discussing this, and here at FST...the dev got frustrated with NL, and decided to start his own and developed Alt.binz froma NL beta source.

    Why the fuck would I lie, I use Alt.binz occassionally, when NL gets to many downloads loaded, saves me the trouble of moving files up in the queue...but hey, it's feature list on the "free version" is identical to NL's, why do you think NL's supersearch is imbedded in alt.binz?

    How does one get SS working for free on NL? I had a version that used to work, but one day it stopped. I uninstalled it, and now whenever I seem to find a new version of Usenet and install it, it just brings up my previously uninstalled version, with the same settings and even a previous search history.

    In Vista/Windows 7 go to, User,Appdata,Roaming and delete the Newsleecher folder after you've uninstalled it. Also, before uninstalling, remove the key. If you didn't remove the key, which I think (unsure) the key is removed by deleting the Appdata NL folder maybe not if not, just use Regedit and click Find and search Newsleecher and then delete the key. NL 3.9 Finall is the only one I've tested for supersearch to work...

    Windows XP I assume it's User,Application Data, and then find the NL folder.

    Those folder are hidden too and protected, so you need to unhide folder and unhide protected operating system files, in all OS's

    When I first signed up at Giganews (i'm with astraweb now) I got the Newsbin Giganews client and supersearch came with it, at least for a few days.

    I love supersearch. It's what I use most. I was using Newsleecher but I found that the latest betas are buggy. I guess 3.9 Final must be stable. Anyways I'm using Alt.Binz for now. And yes both of them seem to have almost the exact same features and I could see how Alt.Binz was built off NL. Oh yeah the Alt.Binz programmer now wants a $15 euro donation at least to be able to get the latest version and he added user name password protection and I believe this has not been fully cracked yet.

    Oh I just saw this on usenet Alt.Binz.v0.30.0.WinAll.REAL-CRD

    Maybe it's fully cracked now.
