    well you would first starting by downloading a newsgroup client

    i use grabit found here

    http://www.shemes.com/

    then you would have to find out your isp's news group server in some cases its hard to find

    then you will recieve a list of topics and check the ones that apply to you your gonna want the alt.binaries

    rogers high speed dont have a news group server i use to have it so that basicly means your out of luck as far as news groups go

    and bout the 3 min thing im not sure never had that prob

    news goups are good but torrents get the job done just not as fast

    well i live in oshawa ontario and i use sympatico and it works good for me

    that site is good for anything if you can find it there but my fav site is torrentspy.com

    i get most of my stuff from news groups

    when i use torrent i get it from

    torrentleech.org
    torrentspy.com
    piratbay.net
    torrentreactor.com

    those sites useually do the job

    well bitspirit doesnt really speed up your downloads when you use torrents it is mainly based on the number of seeders which is the only reason why it is not as good as news groups but bitspirit seems to me to run better then the other clients

    ps

    imma trini too lol
