    In answer to https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/f-new...om-down-355504

    Newzleech is back up after being offline for several days.

    Sorry for downtime! Server maintenance didn't go to plan and we couldn't get a reboot till Monday morning.
    No mention of when (or if) the forum will ever return.

    Newzleech seems to have quite a bit of downtime each and every month, I have slowly started using Merlins Portal more and more.

    How in the hell do you compare "portal" to a search engine? Don't plug a site because a search engine is down, you did it in another thread their are other engines .....

    Good thing it's back cause I can't figure out how to find with partial file names on the others. Maybe I'm just lazy

    Well my good man, to me at least, when I can SEARCH and browse for what I want (like I can with Merlins Portal by clicking "Search")...whether something is a portal, or a search engine, the semantics of it all is trivial to me as long as I am searching and finding what I need. Granted, I will agree with you that binsearch.info is a valuable search tool, actually being one of the better search interfaces I have used. I like Merlins Portal simply due to its "prettiness" if you will, and indexing of what is available. Sometimes I like to simply browse the catalog than just straight search.

    Well true, but it's a forum, so semantics aside, then FST could be classified as a search engine, I thinks of "search egine" as what I listed, because they search the "entire" realm of Usenet.

    Newzleech was one of the few usenet "search engine" sites that also had a section of user-submitted NZBs - "posts" - that could also be searched. Sadly, the verfied NZB posts were disabled.
