Well, I want to avoid to download hundreds of disco polo hits and listen to all of them. Besides, I don't know "usenet", sorry...
Well, if you have a decent Inet connex, then it shouldn't take too long as I don't believe there can be more than 100 Disco Polo songs in all. Bad taste is one thing, but I don't believe that even the ppl who make this cr*p are that stupid anyway.
As for usenet, do a search on Google, I am sure you get loads of hits. Usenet is a little parallel to to the Internet. It uses the nntp protocol and is perhaps the oldest form of Inet like networking. Started out as newsgroups and still uses this format. Advantages are: nearly untraceable downloads, faster, much faster than torrents, 99% chance of getting no crap, but the real stuff. All movies appear first on Usenet before they even make it to the torrents. Usenet is maybe a bit too complicated for newbies or Inetbimbos who just know how to click on a link on a site, but it is in my opinion the best way to get stuff for free. Well, not entirely for free. Due to the very nature of Usenet, as it basically is considered a little extra by ISP's on Mainland Europe (here in Ireland they don't even have Newsservers), the options you get with your ISP are good, but you have to be very fast in order to download stuff. Better idea is to subscribe to a good usenetserver for, say $40,= for 3 months and download as much as you like, fast and unlimited. Plus you can virtually find EVERYTHING on Usenet. But check Google for links and sites. I personally use usenetserver.com
. It's up to you.
Movies, music, etc, are delivered to Usenet in the form of attachments to emails. Since the amount of data to attach to an email is limited, you will get the file split up in several .rar archives. For example: if you want to download a DVD of 4,37 GB, they you will most likely get it in 80 .rar files of 50 Megs. Since the .rar files can be broken, making the entire download useless, the posters generally add a certain amout of parity (.par or .par2) files to it. These nifty little files can actually repair broken .rar archives or even replace missing archives as well, providing the poster has made enough of them. And if you ask nicely, they might be willing to make even more for you. Just go check it out.
M-G (good luck)
