I've noticed torrent and nzb are awfully scare these days, and in the case of nzb there's a worrying thread of who's posting:
viewforum.php?f=49

I know people are downloading, as it says, but i was wondering if there's something about the format that makes it difficult to post a nzb/torrent at dead-donkey? I don't want to think that the software is preventing people posting them. I understand the "no registered trackers" rule makes torrent posting slightly more difficult due to most of it being closed membership and strict ratio trading, but nzb should be simpler.

If its the attaching; Rarring and attaching should be simple, install winrar and then right click the nzb and add it to a new rar. Then below your post, go to upload attachment, click browse then hit add the file. Then when its uploaded hit submit :)

Well, since I've lost access to free newsgroups through my provider I do virtually no
downloading via the newsgroups any longer. Do you think there are a lot of users here
that either don't have access or don't want to pay for them? I fall into both categories.
I did the futile search for 'free binarie newsgroups' but those are just a myth. I guess I
feel I can get most of what I want via private trackers and the mule.

Nothing really that complex...

If you don't know much about .nzb's and newsgroups:
Dead-Donkey guide: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=14869
Slyck guide: http://www.slyck.com/Newsgroups_Guide

NZB files may be uploaded for others to download (if you look in the torrent/nzb forum you can see the attached files).

Image
The above shows what you will see when you create a post. Just upload the .nzb as you create the post.

I am absolutely not interested in news groups. Most of the stuff I want I get from a private torrent tracker. Since I am such a great member I would not even need bittorrent since can download directly via ftp from their seedboxes. :-P
Funny thing is I don't do even this. Except for a few tv eps. I rarely download more than a single movie a month. And in most cases I delete it after 10 minutes. Maybe I am even pickier than I was before, but nearly all new stuff I deem as almost unwatchable crap lately.

you suck...

Even though I'm not watching most, I am stocking up; I'm over in spain with just my laptop now, but I've setup mldonkey on a nas which is trundling along and i can feed it remotely. Also got a windows box i can do remote encodes on but I have to use a "script" to change dvds in it (phoneImpl().phoneSomeoneToChangeDVD()) :lol: Luckily all the best p2p / download agents all focus on remoting so i can scp torrents across or use the webguis.

That all said, there's a lot of shit around... there always has been though.

For Bittorrent I wrote my own client/server program. Same gui/core separation as in mldonkey for edonkey. But since I suck, you won't get it. :-P

Yes and no. Of course I know this project. I also wrote an auto uploader for my favourite tracker. A new release just has to be copied into a certain folder via ftp or scp and it is automatically torrented, seeded and announced on the tracker website. For the seeding part I currently use rtorrent. Soon it will be replaced with my own client. rtorrent is good, my client certainly is not better, but allows me to implement features I want. And of course teaches me quite a bit about bittorrent and similar protocols.

Rarely use news in this period.

Don't down DVDr's anymore, and until I get my new rig early next year I have no need 720/1080 stuff.

For now, the mule and a few trackers like CG suffice ....

Don't most pay news providers host their own NZB files ?
