you need a newsgroup reader. If you have windows then outlook will have what you need, although it will suck. Open outlook then goto the Options menu and pick Accounts or edit accounts. Then when another window pops up find the newserver button, from there follow the steps to insert your newsserver info

Yes, it’s still illegal. You can’t legitimise stealing someones copyrighted property by paying a fee to someone else.
