    You're better off sticking to P2P software. Newsgroups (Usenet) were never designed to move binaries around and when people started using them for it they completely fucked over the network. You'll almost never find complete files on free news servers and if you do they probably won't even last long enough to download them. Full usenet feeds top like 700 gigs a day now and most servers just won't/can't dedicate the required space/bandwidth for them. Especially when most people don't know they exist. :)

    the only way they are useful is if you pay for them.... and lots of software pirates are too poor
