Was thinking of joining a newsgroup, any thoughts? Unfortunately I don't know too many people IRL that are members.

I used to use ngroups.net in combination with newxbin to search. I've stopped downloading for the most part lately tho.

Oh! :D Well in that case I highly suggest an account with Giganews and using Newzbin to get your nzb's. Also SABnzbd is by far the best client around.

edit: looks like newzbin has gone invite only. PM me with your email address and I'll send an invite your way

I'll be needing your email address then :)

I can't say because I've never tried it, but SABnzbd *seems* better

I got this: Error:The provided email address is already in use by another user. If you are that user and have forgotten your username, you can resend it to your email address.

So I resent your username to your email address
