    Has anyone noticed any problems on astraweb the last few days downloading? For some reason, mine hadn't downloaded anything in 4 days and then it started last night.

    So what does this mean when I download a really new show (less than 7 days) and it says (paraphrasing)

    "Download Failed, out of servers retention?"

    Yeah but a lot of people don't know about Usenet (including me back then). I've been using usenet (newshosting) for two years now and will never go back to bittorrent :)

    I hope so. I encrypt all my traffic so they really have no way of knowing what Im grabbing. If I start to have issues because they look at the originating IP, Im going to get a VPN somewhere out of the country.

    I would certainly hope they only act when notified by content providers so that should limit it to P2P if you arent uploading. If not, thats a serious privacy breach.

    Prob ran into the same thing I did. Log into the newznab chat and ask newznab about hdnet. That one gave me tons of headaches.

    I apparently had three invites to NZB.su. I've given away two. Last one goes to whomever sends me a PM with an email address first.

    Sent my three invites. Go back to the site hours later and for some reason it's saying I have 5 more. I'll keep giving them out if you PM me your email address.

    This has also got me thinking that it's odd that I'm posting this in the Now Playing forum. Perhaps we should move this to Happy Hour and trade/give away invites to other sites?
