    Is it easy to setup? Do you have to install anything to get it to work?

    What are folks using for indexers? I was using nzb.is but they recently broke something in their API so Sickbeard/SABnzbd can't grab NZB files automatically. No idea when they'll get around to fixing it.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the info but unfortunately both are invite-only. I'll keep an eye on new registration announcements.

    (Unless someone here has an invite to spare? :))

    Hello - I just registered for this board as I was looking for some information on NZB sites. I noticed the posts about PF Monkey invites. I realize this is my first post but would it possible for someone to send me an invite?

    Regards,
    NZ

    Well, thanks to Malcontent, I just joined so it'll likely be a loooong time before I get any invites.

    But when I do, I'll let folks know.

    (Perhaps NZ will have a few more posts by then as well. ;))

    If anybody else has a PF Monkey invite, I would really appreciate one.

    Yeah, me too. I live a life on the edge of legality thanks to the generosity of strangers. Help me continue.

    My dog is about to expire. I have never done btc before and wasn't sure the best way to go about it. Any recommendations on services to buy from?

    I have used Newsgroupdirect blocks as my primary for years. I also have a small block with Astraweb and a larger block with usenet.farm.

    I let my Newsgroupdirect block run out with the thinking that I would switch to Frugal. As they are both Highwinds, other than retention, I shouldn't notice much difference. Now I discover that usenet.farm uses Highwinds for it's older stuff. I just recently had a hard drive crash so I do need a bit better retention in the short term. I suppose I could increase my block with Astraweb or even go with their $15/2 month unlimited deal.

    An other suggestions?
