What program or service do you recommend for a usenet search engine?

Question by Freedom: What program or service do you recommend for a usenet search engine?

I am very new to usenet. I’ve got a bandwidth limit (250 Gigabytes comcast) that I am trying to maintain, I’ve discovered that downloading the headers for newsgroups that I subscribe to can be massive. I discovered that there is a usenet search engine or two (hopefully more). The two that I have tried are grabit and usenet explorer. Both seem to do the job well, however I slightly lean more towards favoring grabit, their program seems faster, easier to use and their search seems more complete. I am hoping that there are more than these two to pick from, if you know of any, I’d love to hear about them.

Thank you.

There are several good search engines for usenet, some require a small fee (usually a few dollars a month), while others are free. There is a good list of search engines here: http://binarynewshowto.com/resources – this site also has good general usenet / newsgroups tutorials.

E-Plus stellt Ortungsdienste ein – Kanzlei Wilde Beuger & Solmecke Köln

www.wbs-law.de www.wbs-law.de Hotline: 0221 / 400 67 55 E-Mail: info@wbs-law.de Erst vor wenigen Wochen wurde im Internet bekannt, dass E-Plus seine Lokalisierungsdienste bis zum Jahresende abschalten will. Ärgerlich ist dabei, dass das Unternehmen bislang noch keine offizielle Stellungnahme auf seiner Internetseite abgegeben hat- obwohl davon nicht nur direkte Kunden von E-Plus betroffen sind. Zumindest eine frühzeitige Information wäre angebracht gewesen. Nach einigen Meldungen im Internet sollen bis zum 31.12.2010 im Netz von E-Plus sämtliche Lokalisierungsfunktionen abgeschaltet werden. Hierzu hieß es zunächst am 27.12.2010 bei mobilfunk-talk sowie in dem Online-Verbrauchermagazin teltarif.de dass nicht nur Privatkunden, sondern auch Polizei und Feuerwehr in Notfällen keine Handyortung mehr durchführen können. Die dramatische Folge wäre, dass zB schwerverletzten Unfallopfern nicht geholfen werden könnte, soweit sie über keine räumliche Orientierung verfügen oder nicht mehr zu der ordnungsgemäßen Abgabe eines Notrufes übers Handy imstande sind. Ganz so schlimm scheint es doch nicht zu sein. Nach einer am 28.12.2010 erschienen Meldung bei teltarif.de habe die Pressestelle von e-plus angeblich klargestellt, dass Notfalldienste nach wie vor Handyordnung durchführen können. Dennoch ist die Sache für Verbraucher unangenehm, die zB einen Vertrag mit einem Handyortungsdienst abgeschlossen haben. Diese können diese Funktion über das E-Plus Netz plötzlich nicht mehr nutzen

Why so many categories, so many regions but no traffic bar?

Question by Darius: Why so many categories, so many regions but no traffic bar?

I visited Yahoo Answers India by a chance, coming from Google.
Today I discovered, Yahoo Answers is run regionally.
Regional answers for regional questions.
But it doesn’t make sense to ask general questions as regional ones.

What counts is traffic, number of web visits, number of questions, number of questions answered.

Visiting empty categories, visiting empty regional categories, not visited by anyone, does it make any sense ?

Please have a look how does i work with Google Groups, Usenet groups.
You have categories (global categories) and you can get to know number of subscribers, messags in headlines view.
And what counts the most is statistics .

I have already asked few questions and I am sure today, nobody was interested to give me an answer, as I asked general Yahoo Mail questions in regional forum.

So general should go to general, regional to regional.
There is no need to run regional interfaces to Yahoo Answers
as one general interface is exactly ok
and should follow next is
categories tree, like in Google Groups, Usenet.

Some categories may be specified as regional, some not
but it makes no sense to ask the same general questions at each of regional Answers web forums.

And traffic load bar and statistics are the most important features.

Why should I ask any questions not to be read by anyone in a specified category ?

Please improve Yahoo Answers to smart service.
Usenet groups worked fine for years,
Google Groups worked fine for years,
today number of web forums goes in millions, number of Google Groups goes in millions.

More web forums, groups, categories than users to populate them.

The issue is Yahoo Mail and new settings, flagging inbound traffic as Spam, what actually is not any Spam at all.

Just run self-test and send test e-mail to yourself, to see how it works and what flag gets your self-tested mail.
If spam, as in my case, it mean , there is something wrong with Yahoo Mail as before.

I don’t send spam, keep system clean of viruses, trojans, malware.

IP assigned is dynamic IP assigned by my telecom cell modem operator.
IPs assigned from national operator are rated poor by Senderbase, Ironport, Spamhaus.

What can I do next ?
Already contacted my operator, notified him with a problem
and got standard form reply and no human response in 14 days yet.

Assigning poor rated IP addresses to customers is playing not fair,
any assigned IP should be first checked against mail filtering databases and kept clean, as what I inherit is history of previous users of the same IP as assigned dynamic, temporary to me.

If you know a solution , please let it me know.


Should I ask my lawyer to contact my national telecom operator
and tell its COB what is he doing wrong ?

I tried reading all this, but it’s a lot & its hard to read. It seems very disconnected.

It sounds to me like you have more than 1 issue that needs to be resolved. And perhaps you’re not asking your question(s) in the most specific category.

It also sounds as if your issues with Y!A need to be taken up with the people who actually run Y!A, not with the people who are answering on Y!A.

As for your mail issue, you need to ask that in the Home > Yahoo! Products > Yahoo! Mail category (and even from there you could go into > Problems with Service or > Spam & Bulk Mail), not the Home > Yahoo! Products > Yahoo! Answers category.

Good luck!

I need a way to auto download from a list of MP3s, either through torrent, usenet, rapidshare, doesnt matter.?

Question by Sean A: I need a way to auto download from a list of MP3s, either through torrent, usenet, rapidshare, doesnt matter.?
I have a list, can be plain TXT, Excel, CSV, doesnt matter how it needs to be formatted. I would like to take this list to load a queue through any type of download service. Any ideas?
Basically something that will search, and automatically add to a download queue, using a program like Utorrent or something similar. My list is too large to manually replace my collection. Any ideas? Maybe some sort of script that can handle this?

Using Wget it seems possible. See the following link, its the 3rd option down.

Clip from the article “First, create a text file called mp3_sites.txt, and list URLs of your favorite sources of music online one per line (like http://del.icio.us/tag/system:filetype:mp3 or stereogum.com). Be sure to check out my previous feature on how to find free music on the web for more ideas.

Then use the following Wget command to go out and fetch those MP3’s:
wget -r -l1 -H -t1 -nd -N -np -A.mp3 -erobots=off -i mp3_sites.txt

That Wget recipe recursively downloads only MP3 files linked from the sites listed in mp3_sites.txt that are newer than any you’ve already downloaded.”
