    good guide, but i think you ought to put in something about file rentition and pay servers (and PARs but thats already been mentioned).

    I doubt it, sorry. Unless you want to pay for newsgroups. If you really use newsgroups you should subscribe to a pay one, if your ISP has one its just a little bonus. Use google to search.

    They have my isp!. Newsgroups are great im about a four hours into just configuring it all and boy am I impressed. All type of apps and video files and pc game and audio files etc etc etc etc. This is truly is the mother of all everything on the internet. I started off on torrents ,then went to mirc,then went to direct downloads and now I,m in newsgroups and once you figure out how to download the files without all the hassle you will fall in love with newsgroups. Fast downloads none other can compete.

    SO far i found all sorts of files that I could not find by way of torrent or irc or direct download (rapidshare megashare etc). Forget about torrent and mirc or direct download ,get a isp that supports newsgroups like yahoo and pick any file you want you will not regret it.

    Btw this newsgroup guide is good. The stuff about nbz and various other things is well written.

    Also when will there be mushrooms for these programs (supernzb etc etc) I been searching the net but find it hard to find a mushroom for these applications.

    afunguy, edit your post & reread the forum rules above.

    JParkes, edit your sig to conform to forum rules ASAP.
    4. If you want to use both text and image in your signature the image should not be more than 500 pixels wide and 100 pixels tall, and you can use up to three lines of text.

    You need to have downloaded the .par2 files with the .rars. Then open any of the .par2 files in quick par. The easiest way is to edit the properties of a par2 file so that windows automatically opens them with quick par.
