      newsleecher

      hi,i was wondering if anyone could help with a newsleecher problem i have.
      i have downloaded and installed newsleecher and my isp is sky.com which it seems does not have any newsgroups unlike other isp's is it possible to get newsleecher working or have i wasted my anual fee by paying for newsleecher ?
      many thanks for any help with this.

      sky does not host any newsgroups so you will either need to find a free usenet provider or pay for one i'm afraid.

      I've not used newsgroups for a while (too many viruses and there's not much legit stuff to be found on them). I did use claranews, with newsleecher, when I did tho but this was about 5 years ago!!!!!

      I use Giganews, not the cheapest but one of the best. Contary to the above, I find less nasties getting stuff from newsgroups than P2P/torrents etc.

      You could also try Astraweb, you don't have to have a monthly subscription with them.
      You can buy a block of download, and use it when ever you need, it does not expire.
      Also you can pay by PayPal.

      +1 for AstraWeb.... Been using them for a couple of years now. Excellent retention ratio, fairly cheap monthly unlimited subscription (if you need that sort of thing..)
