Usenet

Did anyone use usenet?Heard its the fastest way to download files?Share few lines about it.

^ I guess you are talking about the Usenet an 'Internet discussion system'

If so.... then

yes it's related to fast downloads.

I didn't use it ever but have read a lot of articles on it.

i think it's tough for me to give detail about it (it's a large one to describe or understand). but I think it's a very nice topic for one to have knowledge atleast about it. may be some others also have knowledge about it. or even have experience of using it.

I recently collected some use full links.

please intrupt me if you were talking about some thing else.

Yeah I was too asking about it, I have read somewhere that usenet is more older than internet,one doesn't need seeds, peers for it , the download remains at one constant place but you have to pay for the server :D ..yeah its good if someone share about it.. their experience about it.

well, you can try it for free for 2 weeks ... I did and it was awesome ...everything and anything was available ...

Its too hard,I thought handling bittorrent software is a hard job but usenet readers sucks even more :D

I have heard about usenet often but i still don't understand exactly how it works. From what i understand files are uploaded on a server, other servers copy these files from that server and this way a user who has access to any server can access these files. It seems efficient way of transferring popular stuff but in case of unpopular stuff it wastes a lot of bandwidth what i don't understand is where does the content originate, can anyone with access to usenet upload stuff there ? Since most of these servers are owned by ISPs, why do they not block newsgroups that contain pirated stuff ?

Is there any cheap way to get access to usenet (~$10 for 10 gb is too much)

I guess no one will pay like 10$ only for reading text articles over there. and every one wants to earn more. so they have to give it.

Torrents are good, stick to it..usenet is a headache nothing else :D

I will highly recommend DONT TRY USENEXT even for a trial,bcz trail version is free and dont have uninstall exe and there is nothing special speed,how can we get more download speed than our connection limit using this software ?

Usenext have its own search engine like eMule,LimeWire and some more prb i faced with this may be this is the reason i dont like.

yup for most of us pakistani users, i think finding a good torrent should be enough. good torrents easily fill a 4MBps conduit

Download anything using torrent.

Usenext require log in and many more other things but torrents are full free.
