the good thing is u usually get max speed on usenet, man when i had 20mb line loool
4gb files in about 20 mins

basically u pay to use a server (astraweb in my case, £7 per month)

next get ur ".nzb" files, these are basically ur ".torrent" files

i use merlinsportal to get my .nzb files (its free) merlinsportal is basically ur piratebay for nzb files

lastly u need "altzbinz" its free, this is basically ur utorrent/bittorrent software.


so basically pay for server, download altzbins (put ur username and password in it (from server), then download nzb file, double click to open it in altzbins and finally click "connect"


you pay to download pirated material.. :? thats a new one..

Please enlighten me why this is better than magnet links and or torrents?

exactly, u cant mess with usenet, SSL encrypted


so nzb file goes to your server and you get stuff from your server which is ssl encrypted...? :?
#5
torrents are safe to use



....search for what you want (probably best to sort results by no of seeders) and click the link to download. either save to hd or open directly with utorrent.

4 years and ~3tb of data and ive never had a problem - including viruses.
#6
what do people mean by safe....as in are the law gonna come knocking down on your door and bust your ass for what your been downloading...
#7
....of course i wont deny i do get more worried by the day with reports of people getting caught and letters from lawyers
#8
....ok i took the links out, but they have been quoted by massmail666. am i going to get into trouble for this?

i have never used a pay service, im sure they do run at greater speeds, but if youre happy to leave your pc on overnight it isnt too much of a problem unless you decide you want to watch something within an hour or two.
#9
thanks for removing links massmail666, unless you didn't and im about to be hit square in the face by the ban hammer

Can still encrypt your torrents down/upload. Or can use a SSL Connection as well...think you would need to pay for that though...or go through a server backbone that has SSL...like my university that I can access remotely!

I did use something similar to newzbins years ago, but only as my MD paid for it! It was good, and quick, but sometimes a little tedious.
I use iptorrents and get maybe 5-10% slower downloads from there as usually the seeders are ace on there...but you have to upload it back to get your ratio up. Which is fine on unlimited, but 40mb could cause problems.
#11
on a serious note i'd ease up on torrents unless you can protect them. someone said there was a way and it might be as simple as peerguardian and pressing "force encryption" in utorrent but i dont want to risk it.


i should perhaps look into that, its just that for 4 years it been a daily occurence and hard to accept that you cant just go and get what you want

it is now that ISPs are checking whats being downloaded.

180GB SSL encrypted newsgroup allowance for £16 is the way to go imho.
#13
but thing is how is the ISP system workign

are they checking EVERYONE

or those that are maxing out their connection or reaching their download limit everymonth?

so there isn't a way to do it for free? don't fancy having my bank deets on one of these services books

u can use the free servers if ur on virgin, but i wouldnt.


The only thing better that I could get from a paid newsgroup/usenet is retention, which I'm sure in certain circumstances is great though rarely needed, or at least I don't. The completion rate is perfectly fine, obviously I can't quote a 99% figure, though I've never been left with a dud download. The range of groups is probably most likely less however all the big alt.bin's are up there and full download speed.

I can't understand why anyone would pay to download personally, a concept that's gone over my head for years ever since I made the switch from torrents to newsgroups.

The only downside with Virgin is of course 'traffic managing' though most UK ISP's have that in place so no matter whether you pay third party or not, you're going to be traffic managed at certain times of the day.

It's not actually their servers, it's once again, a third party who also charges for access. I forget who it is, use to be a different company under NTL, Virgin switched hosts I believe but retained the newsgroup access.

Hardly any different from what anyone is suggesting here. :whistling:

After all there's plenty of Linux distro's you can download.

fair enough but surely virgin can easily see what you are downloading compared to SSL newsgroups. Personally, I prefer to pay 5p per film to ensure I dont get kicked off my VM BB or get a £500 bill through the post!
#20
Iv considered newsgroups but i think il stick with torrents for now as the sites i use & the stuff i download i get at very good speeds & a lot of times i can max out my download speed on the private sites i use, granted you wont get full speeds from public sites but its very rare i use them

Im on Virgin's 20Mb connection

I don't think anyone could argue with that, and SSL is obviously a lot safer and I think in the future things will change.

In terms of Virgin and their anti-piracy propaganda, I think they mostly want to be seen doing the right thing, I think it was last year, they made a big statement about piracy on their network, but on the same day made another statement of increased rentention and the size of their newsgroups, I don't believe they're naive enough not to know the uses for their newsgroup access.

At the moment I see it as, it gets people off torrents, which means anti-piracy companies emailing them long lists of IP's they've picked up off trackers, threatening actions could be reduced so they're seen as 'actively reducing piracy' by trading one evil for a lesser 'public evil' as apart from uploaders it's mostly internal.

Though I may have just talked myself into feeling less paranoid than I should be, things will no doubt change though.

Wow.. u want my bank details now!

You can do it via Paypal... what u afraid of? You do know usenet isn't illegal don't you?

I use usenet but would it be just as safe to use utorrent with http://www.hide-my-ip-address.com/hideip/?pu=false to get encryption

thats just for browsing though. :thinking:

utorrent allows encryption anyway but not sure how well it works.
