    Hi, I'm just trying newsgroups to download binaries files. I'm using
    NewsLeecher. I have subscribed myself to binary newsgroup on some free
    server but the problem is there is none complete archive. Some parts
    are allways missing. Is it possible to download complete archives from
    free server(s) or will I have to sign up to some paid server
    (Giganews)? I must say the second alternative is nonsense for me 'cause
    why to pay for dowloading on usenet when there are tons of binaries in
    torrents... :-/

    thanx

    Free servers are notorious for incompletes.

    How much misery you have with binaries depends on how cheap you want
    your downloads.

    Some people use news agents which can access multiple newsservers, so
    they access multiple frees and they also use commercial NSPs to solve
    'fills' problems at the most economical rate. If you aren't downloading
    much from the commercial NSP you can buy a non-expiring block at a low
    rate.

    http://www.bnr2.org/bnrfeat.html Support for multiple news servers
    simultaneously -- NewzBin NZB support -- Server modes (blind servers
    and header servers) . BNR2 allows assigning roles to individual servers
    such as Article-Only servers, which skip downloading headers and
    attempts to download articles based on the Message-ID's already
    downloaded from one or more other server.

    Other people decide to do it the easy way and just subscribe to a
    commercial nsp to save the 'hassle'. Then they just shop for where is
    the best deal which is the most convenient and reliable where they get
    the number of gigs they need for the price which is acceptable.

    Thank you, but all the work with binaries looks so exhausting... Is
    there some reason why use newsgroups instead of torrents or other p2p
    services (eDonkey etc.) ?

    Depends on what you want to download.

    That is a complicated subject.

    The 'best' way to transfer large files is ftp them from an ftp
    server/source with some advantages and disadvantages to torrent and
    other p2p. I like to dl linux distros from ftp mirrors rather than
    torrent, but that's just me.

    My previous broadband provider didn't want/allow people on cable modems
    to be 'bandwidth hogs' using an asymmetric bandwidth system and
    functioning as a binary uploader/p2pserver. My current provider hasn't
    stated an official position, but if I were a broadband provider, I would
    be snooping for uploading p2p activity.

    The 'angle' on why nntp newsgroup binary sharing is so 'abused' and
    convoluted and such a burden on provider's free newsservers is
    complicated by some privacy issues.

    So, the unsimple answer to your question is that 'It depends.'

    Worth looking at, Giganews has very high completion, great speed and
    long retention something like 70 days for binary.

    I used to use the free (included with ISP) Usenet servers and some low
    cap, low cost commercial servers to replace missing parts but it wasn't
    worth the trouble, as well as the extra cost.

    Stopped all that and for a while went to Giganews, still keeping the
    account active for the ocassional use.

    Because you get all the parts :) with the right server.

    You may want to look at Forte Agent and Newsleecher (also has a usenet
    search index).

    Most torrent trackers and other p2p services don't like leaches if you're
    intent on illegal content.

    Hamster can suck Usenet feeds and act as your own personal Usenet server.
    Maybe you can check it out.
