    Someone please explain usenet to me

    I've been looking in to using usenet, newsgroups etc for downloads but to be honest, i'm lost in a minefield of info. someone please give it to me in simple terms what i need to be doing.

    Also, NO USENEXT please, too many people call this a scam.

    You will need a usenet server access plan, I use astraweb and have their $11 special (about £7 a month) this gives you unlimited downloads and will max out your connection. They have one of the best retentions around too at 480 days which means any files are held for 480 days on their servers.

    Software wise I use:
    Altbinz to handle and manage the downloads,
    quickpar to repair any damaged files using the par files included in the downloads (rarely needed).
    Damnnfo for viewing the nfo files.
    Winrar for extraction.


    My preferred sites for downloads are (in order).

    ]merlins-portal.net
    ]nzbmatrix.com
    ]nzbsrus.com
    and finally for more elusive stuff
    ]binsearch.info
