    Default Newsgroups Issue

    Anyone else having a problem with newsgroups. Been using tweaknews for a while and never had a problem since the last month or so.

    Virtually everything i grab is incomplete and not enough pars to repair.

    Anyone shed any light on what it might be

    Loads of my movie downloads seem to have buffering issues, which I can't explain. Nothing untoward with resources on my server.

    Perhaps time to get a block account as backup.

    No major issues here on Newshosting. Still soldiering on fine (albeit the usual DCMA's).

    I'm on tweaknews and have noticed a considerable drop in service. Like you most tv series I try and grab are incomplete. I thought it's because I'm tethering everything through my phone at the moment but obviously not. Probably time to get a new provider. Tweaknews are cheap but obviously too cheap. They will probably go the way of my last cheap provider (whose name escapes me) and close up shop.

    Been using Newsdemon for about 8 years and not had any real issues. You got the odd article that gets taken down almost immediately but on the whole it's OK.

    I'm also with newshosting and never really had any issues grabbing stuff but my speed has dropped significantly recently.

    DejaVu, what server and port do you use?

    newsdemon and newsleecher here, no problems
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Using macpar delux here (and it needs to rename all the files) and that does the job.

    Not had any speed issues. I'm still only using 25 of the 30 connections using news.newshosting.com with port 563 and SSL enabled. Grabs almost everything I want when I want it.
    Anything it doesn't grab, I tend to use a private torrent tracker for, but it's only for the odd TV Show that's DCMA'd at break neck speed.
