      Newgroups : How To

      Hi People,

      I was speaking to one of my friends last night, who said that Virgin are the only one who offer a decent newsgroup service. Sky however do not, which i know.

      Ok, so a quick browse around the P2P Forum and i find that people are using newsgroups elsewhere. Now that is just great

      So how can i set it up? Are they actually any good?

      Thanks,
      envy

      Well after doing some research i signed up for Astraweb on the PAYG 110GB Option for about 13. Doesnt seem that bad a deal really.

      However does anyone know of any decent 'groups' to join on Astraweb? So far i have found spam, flaming and more spam

      Thanks,

      I use a site called newzbin.com, they do all the hard work for you and for only a few pence a day. You just click on the things you want.

      I also have newsleecher as my download manager.

      A quick note: on Skyuser we don't like to see the forum used to offer/solicit invites to P2P/torrent/newsgroup sites. Members have been banned in the past for asking.

      Please don't continue any invite discussions. General discussion of newsgroups etc is fine.

      Exclamation Re: Newgroups : How To

      I use Usenetvault.com, they just sent me an e-mail with great news: new servers... get 2 for the price of 1 !!

      They have added servers leased from news-service.com these servers which are available to users of the unlimited monthly account and free trials.

      Use your same login/password. Over 140 days retention...
      So now you have access to the UNS servers and News-Service.com all for one low price.

      Read more also on their news section usenetvault.com/news.php
