    If you guys decide to do a private indexing site for us on TCF I'm in. I'd almost suggest you invite people (who request it) via PM rather than in the main thread and only invite people you know. I think the problem with NZBMatrix is too many people know about it. ;)

    Another victim of the nzbmatrix shut down here. I did have a dognzb login awhile ago, but hardly used it because nzbmatrix worked perfectly for me. Looks like they deactivated my account at some point. Argh!

    I too would be interested in a TCF index site... :)

    Dogzipp posted this about bandwidth usage with newznab

    "Not that much. Headers are compressed (if using astraweb), and pure text. And they don't even count agains your provider downloads (headers don't count). As for speed, not much. Probably less than 1MB/512K when updating. "

    Just be warned that the only usenet provider that newznab will do compressed headers is astraweb. That doesn't help me...but I'm less worried about bandwidth than time. The thing about newznab is that it's not hard to setup. It just takes some effort to configure it and then some serious download/processing time if you want to backfill a bunch of the groups very far.

    Just want to say this is horrible. I JUST gave NZBMatrix $10 a couple of weeks ago.

    And they run the adult NZB site I use as well.

    I'd be in for a TCF only place to go.

    This seems to be a site based on the NewzNab indexer.

    Yep. If you want to see what newznab looks like that site is running a stock install of it.

    Greatly depends if you want to go backfill a bunch of groups and for how long. To start indexing today going forward it's not bad at all. Go back 30 days? Not bad. A year? A lot.

    That was one of the things I liked about nzbmatrix... some of the non-tv stuff that I downloaded was from many hundreds of days ago.
