USENET PROVIDERS

Usenet newsgroups have been around for many more years than torrent, p2p and even before AOL !! There are pros and cons to using newsgroups, firstly some are paid access (very cheap) and there are many free providers out there, the difference is usually in speed and retention (how long you have access to files for , most free providers around 100 days, paid providers are up to around 5 years (some more!)).  We recommend taking a trial with UsenetServer, Newshosting, Easynews , Pure Usenet or XLNed.


DOWNLOAD APPLICATIONS

In the above video we are using a program called ALT.BINZ, but there are other programs available such as NZB GET, NEWSBIN, NEWSLEECHER, and GRABIT. All of which require set up the same way :-

  • Enter Provider details
  • Choose where you want file to download to
  • Choose if you want auto repair/extract

WHAT ARE PARS?

Without going into technical detail of how usenet works (parts, binaries and pieces!), like downloading from mega.nz occasionally you can download ‘incomplete’ files, the par system (also known as par2 or par3) enable the application to ‘repair’ the incomplete files based on information that it has saved, these are very useful and most applications you can set to download pars “if required”.

PARS ARE MAGICAL !! They repair rar archives that you download, some download applications (mentioned above) have a par repair function built in or you can run separate programs such as QUICKPAR or MULTIPAR.

HOW BIG IS USENET/NEWSGROUPS?

Basically its infinite, there are no limits to its storage.

WILL ARCADE PUNKS SUPPORT USENET?

YES, you can already see we have started adding downloads as NZB files, so oyou can download direct from nzb search sites, as we speak we are aware that our uploader friends are in the process of uploading quite big archive sets such as the PiPiggies Renegade and MLP 2tb to Usenet ready for download, you can also check out our new (and growing) NZB only page HERE

WHAT ELSE CAN I DO WITH USENET?

Well throw away your torrent client for a start because if its out, its out on Usenet too, and here at Arcade Punks we intend to bring our scene to the usenetsphere too! Here are some other sites that may well just blow you away.

  • Binsearch.info – This is a search site to search for ANYTHING
  • NZB-Index – Another great search site
  • PreDB – Scene pre database with nzb link built in search
  • NZB-Tortuga – NZB Indexer, The Pirate Bay for Usenet!
  • Fast-NZB – NZB Indexer, The Pirate Bay for Usenet!
  • A simple google search for NZB SITES will show you hundreds of other options.

We look forward to getting the entire back archive of related scene software up on usenet for you to download, and we hope that in time, we can work with some usenet providers to offer you discounts and extended free trials – watch this space for more info 🙂
