    You can go as far back as you want..just takes time to pull down the headers.

    Woot! Just had Sickbeard grab the first episode of a show using my local index. Getting there.

    There is a Newznab indexer (works with Sickbeard and Couchpotato) that is open for registrations. But it's for what the sites calls a 'probation' account. It's very limited but it will get you in the door and you can upgrade to VIP. I haven't used this site before so I don't know how reliable it is. The site seems very active.

    After posting 20 non spam messages you are auto upgraded to 'normal' user. But it's obvious that 'probation' and 'normal' levels are not suitable for Sickbeard/Couchpotato users. You get 10 nzb downloads for 'probation' and 20 for 'normal' level. You will have to upgrade to VIP. You can upgrade to VIP directly without posting 20 messages. Upgrading to VIP isn't automated. It involves contacting the Admins via private message or email. The easiest is to contact them and they will send you a Paypal email address to send funds to.

    Stumbled across more Newznab sites with open registrations. Again, I have no experience with these sites. I don't know if their reliable.

    I'm thinking of setting one up on an Amazon EC2 instance. Let me work on it tonight and I'll post here when I get something working.

    Curious to see what it costs to run one of these on an EC2 instance. Keep seeing people talking about it. Will depend on how much backfilling you do. I'm hammering my VM today pulling in backfilled data. 2 vCPUs on an X3440 system, 2GB of RAM, and a lot of disk I/O to my lab Synology...enough that I svMotioned that VM to a datastore on SSDs instead of spinning disks to try and speed it up.

    I would love to be part of a TFC private group too. NZBMatrix was my only source too. I haven't figured out how to get nzb.su working right yet.

    I used https://nzb.su/index.php

    In the forum the admin said why it's doing that.

    If any one needs help doing it let me know. I'm pulling in back data right now and I still may open mine up for private use. Just want to get it to a steady state first and move it to a protected network.
