Hi

found this good place to sunscribe to access newsgroups. what they offer is a week unlimited access and this maxes out on my 8meg connection. for only $4 or £2 great value if you save up all your downloads for the month and use the week option. beats subs for month accounts if you can wait !!!!

but for the cost its a steal, I was using newsdemon but found this, same speed, but not as good retention approx 120 days so I now only hammer newsgroups once a month and save cash !!!

Usenet (not usernet :P ) is a great place to grab stuff. For Windows clients I recommend the freeware GrabIt!. It's great for downloading things and can do that with multiple sessions. If you are into a lot of chatting and less downloading then grab Forté Agent.

And I use GigaNews myself. Cheap and fast.

I never really could get myself into Usenet, I sometimes found there was too much spam on them...
