NewsLeecher with the new SuperSearch

June 11th, 2010

NewsLeecherNewsLeecher is a very nice newsgroup reader. It gives really a lot of possibilities. The most important features for me are the constant development of the program, full support for NZB files and encoding yEnc, automatic support for PAR2 and RAR files which means that NewsLeecher automatically extracts data from files archived and assess whether they are damaged and then tries to make repairs. The program has several other very interesting features but one of the most important, which recently drew my attention to SuperSearch is a mechanism that allows you to quickly search all the binary groups by keyword, for example, which is the title of a film in less than one second as the company declares. So we can enjoy the speed that gives the Usenet and in addition we have the whole center of the search integrated into one program.

June 5th, 2010

newzbin2Newzbin operates again. The same domain, the same code with slight changes, the old users can log on to old logins and passwords. A miracle? No. It is a planned share of people under the name Team R Dogs. My favorite answer as service code got in their hands. They freed the code for the site. Code wants to be free. It is a thought.
Now, no longer fighting for freedom, but we are fighting for freedom on the Internet and that is to have equal access to the solutions which others prohibit. Read more…

Newzbin closed

May 19th, 2010

shutdownMain NZB indexing site was officially closed. Unfortunately, after losing cases with movie studios for copyright infringement came changes. After removing the disputed content search engine continued to exist until now. was closed yesterday, because I can not do their duty. According to information posted on the company is guilty of others, even several hundred thousand pounds, including the penalty of losing a process with the MPAA – the American Association designed to advance the business interests of movie studios rate of up to 230,000 pounds.
Closure of the site may also involve technical problems. Usenet users demanded from Newzbin publicity, however, the code search company did not agree to it. However, rumors circulate about a robbery and copy the code and databases. This is not meaningless because a good few years ago, hackers broke into the site and stole customer base item, and soon formed other NZB search engine with similar-looking code.
Other indexing sites can find in the earlier article on this topic here.
