Do you want 1 from each SIDE of the picture, or just from different clouds?

At present the best combo is primary Frugal-Usenetnow-Blocknews (all are one entity but different product category) and a euro backup block (right side) on Laria's pic. If you already have Frugal-Usenetnow-Blocknews primary using Astra/Highwinds/Giga would be of little help.

I'm stuck with Astraweb primary for a long time because I bought a 1 TB block. I have only used 52 GB of it so far. I just signed up for the free Tweaknews, though... hopefully that will let me get the one Nashville I'm missing so I can continue watching the show!

Can someone explain supplemental nzbs to me?

I still was not able to complete the episode of Nashville from the euro server. "Repair failed, not enough repair blocks (590 short)". I never seem to have any luck completing things if I click on "Retry" in SABnzbd. But the popup window has "Optional Supplemental NZB" that I can add.

Before I just go trying to download another nzb to see if I can complete that, is there any way to salvage the one I already tried to download? I already used 1.3 GB of my 10 from Tweaknews trying to download this one.

You can manually search for par files.

Believe supplemental nzbs are just ones that are self-created that contain additional PAR blocks from another source. Its like a manual version of having a backup provider setup in Sab+.

Hrm, ok... I guess I will just try the other nzbs and hope one of them completes.

So if I end up with my setup being

Frugal - primary
Blocknews - backup
Astra - backup
euro backup block (right side) on Laria's pic - backup

Would that pretty much do it automatically? So if it fails downloading then there is no chance anywhere for it right?

Frugal and Blocknews are the same company which uses the same backend Readnews servers so it doesn't help. Astra has automated takedown so it would be useful only for incompletes. For price/speed considerations use a provider from the left side as primary and one from the right as backup. As a poorer alternative use any left side provider that is non-Readnews server and then a block acct from Blocknews (Readnews provider).

I understand the redundancy, frugal only has a 300 day retention, so anything >300 I use blocknews for

You'll have to reset PW. Nzbsu had a security issue. Also you can no longer use your email/pw has to be username/pw

Wish it was. As it is right now, it's frustrating.

Found out it was due to some massive nzbs someone had put up. Saw there were several over the 400gb range and even one at 598gb. Just removed those from the db and it worked fine again.

Same here. I just posted about it on the Dognzb 'Staff' IRC channel. Hopefully it will get fixed soon.

NZBs

It looks like my fave, File Sharing Talk, is gone. Any recommendations on other good NZB sites?

NZBsRUs.com. But it's gotten pretty pricey since I joined and bitcoins are required to buy a subscription.

Ive heard lots of bad stuff about this site ripping people off. I registered an account but Bitcoins is just too much of a PITA.

I never did really get into, or even understand usenet. I think I'm missing out but it always sounded kind of like it was for "shady" activities but I guess in reality I don't know much about it. The bitcoin thing just makes it even weirder to me. What are the top uses of usenet?
