Yup, the 250meg MPEG of the show is on the newsgroups in alt.binaries.multimedia

Get it fast, it'll be gone in 2 days or less!

Can you assist in getting a NNTP server identifed that I would use with RoadRunner, a cable modem setup. I'm using Outlook Express for mail...TIA!

Most of your free news servers, em, suck. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif I'd pay the extra $10-$20/month, and subscribe to a premium news provider.. You can easily find enough stuff out there to justify the costs.. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

alt.binaries.images
alt.binaries.multimedia.erotica /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif

Take a look at usenetserver.com .. They rock..

(Sorry if this goes against advertising regs, etc.. It's non-auto related, so I'm taking my chances.. hehe)

I find that RoadRunner has great news servers...If you have cable or DSL call your provider and ask them what the address is to your news server.

Or look in the member area of your proviers site...

Mark, I couldn't find it either. If someone could post the date and time of the entry, it would make it easier to find.

Second, the reason why you aren't seeing this is because most non-premium usenet providers do not have NEAR the retention that the big boys in this arena have.. You would not believe how much disk space is needed just for a day's worth of news (with all those alt.binaries groups..) My current guess would be a terrabyte a day.. It's probably more, tho.

So, what the little usenet providers do is just hold stuff for 24-36 hours, and then purge to make room for the new..

And, I saw someone a couple posts up in the thread ask about the group again.. It's alt.binaries.multimedia .. That's it.
