    They have no automated DMCA removal process like Astraweb. Content remains on their servers longer then Astraweb.

    You could get a smaller/cheaper usenet block from them and use it as a backup server to Astraweb. The missing parts on Astraweb's servers could be downloaded from Blocknews.

    Thanks guys, this is what I did. :)

    Edit: Doh, except it looks like I still cannot download my Nashvilles. :) Oh well, at least it was cheap and now I have a backup server.

    I'd like to add myself to the list of those looking for a dognzb invite, if anybody has one to spare.

    The ones I need are still in Comcast's on-demand service, so if I just watch the two I managed to extract from the Tivo this weekend and the first one in on-demand, then I should be good for a couple weeks, since I'm guessing this week's is the last before the holidays. The ones I couldn't get off my Tivo were E03, E05, and E07... E03 is the oldest available so I need to get to that one before this week's knocks it out.

    I have one more invite. First person to send me a PM receives it.

    Oh and don't forget to include your email address. I'll send it to the first person who PMs their email address to me.

    Edit: Taken!

    I think that those editors have just announced themselves.
    The site's news posts date back to August. It does seem a tad weird that they waited until Newsbin closed it's doors before utilizing it's member database to get new members.

    They sent out some emails back in July (I got one). They didn't have the majority of the features they appear to have now. Their site was still kind of rough at the time. I visited a few times but forgot about it.

    Here is the email I received back in July.

    I signed up for it just to check it out. It's certainly nicely organized. I don't see any mention of a VIP type account... Are they just providing it for free for now?

    ETA: I'd still love an invite to dognzb. If anyone has one please PM me here: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/private.php?do=newpm&u=1876

    I would be most appreciative. :)

    They had closed registrations back in September but I guess they reopened when Newzbin2 closed.

    There were people that were upset that the operators of nzbs.in essentially stole the email addresses of the newsbin users in order to send out invitations to their site. So they didn't start out with the best of reputations.

    People's...
    nzb.su was just open a few days ago when I posted about Newzbin's demise. Guess they got a rush of registrations.
