Heard a lot about Usenet and it’s file sharing capabilities, but don’t have a clue where to get starting using it? You need “How to Make Use Of Usenet for File Sharing,” the latest manual by author Lachlan Roy.
It’s one of the earliest forms of the modern Internet, but Usenet is still alive and kicking. Why is it still around when it is so old, you ask? Because even after 30 years, Usenet is still arguably the best platform for file sharing out there (and quite possibly the largest, too).
Networks were very different back in the 1980’s. The Internet, as we know it, was not open or widespread, dial-up was king and hard drive capacity was measured in megabytes, not gigabytes. Networking was very much around, though. Computers all over the world could still be linked up, and there were ways of communicating.
One way was Usenet. While usability was very primitive by today’s standards, it still allowed users to share text and images as well as other small files.
This amazing manual will show you:
-What Usenet was historically, and is today
-What you can do with Usenet, and how to get started
-Finding a Usenet provide
-Searching Usenet for files
-Learning SABnzbd, a Usenet filesharing client

Answer by Kaela Amirkabirian
Usenet predates BitTorrent protocol and I have found it to be a relatively safe, stable, and effective method of file-sharing. Of course, newsgroup technology in general is also good for methods besides P2P file sharing. I highly recommend it.
