Thread: Usenet vs. Rapidshare

  1. #1
    Hi I have used usenet in the past, but was now looking towards rapidshare. There site says it is SSL secured. As a premium member are all RS dls SSL secured? Also whats there daily DL limit? I know they had one in the past, but I can't find it on the site now.

    usenet ----> rapidshare is a major downgrade.

    yeah no shit stick with Usenet, every upload/download via Rapidshit is monitored, and Rapidshare is giving uploaders IP's to authoritys.

    5 GB/day accumulating up to 25 GB on your account. [conditions of use, IV. (2)]

    Similar to Usenet providers, they log your traffic + ip address, but not what you download.

    @topic
    If you find everything you want on Usenet, I see no reason to change. There might be sites of interest that upload to RS, offering additional content.

    I doubt you will get many pro rapidshare post. This is a newsgroup section of this forum. It is not that expensive to have both anyway.

    I guess only reason for going for rapidshare is that is has a lot more variety than usenet...can't find a lot of the old tv shows on usenet or if they are there they are all in german or other foreign languages. I am using newzbin.com for indexing. Any other better indexing service?

    I have always been on the fence about Rapidshare. Somewhat over priced for what you get and no way to search the whole network, got to rely on people posting there own links. Oh yea, and the logging..screw that.

    no not really; newzbin is basically the best.

    supersearch is very good too...

    and as for free indexers; https://nzbindex.com/
    is really starting to shine these days.

    binsearch and newzleech seem to be slowly declining, both in turn around time, as well as reliability. newzleech especially.

    Search German in any NZB serach eninge and you get all the shows you could ever want, and you can request them too. And you do know there are IRC's for requsting those odd ball shows too?
