After the downfall of megaupload and other hosters, it became very troublesome to download anime via one click hosters. If you don´t have several premium accounts, you have to wait hours to download an episode, days for whole series.

That´s why i hooked up with a premium usenet account. For movies and tv series it´s very nice and comfortable and most of the time it makes full use of your bandwith.

The only thing, that is hard to get on usenet is dual audio anime. Why is that so ? For a few months now, i´ve been searching for an anime usenet site/search site. But most of the encoders and anime sites still focus on one click hosters, i don´t understand why. It´s slow and uploaders/downloaders are traceable.

Maybe some users here can enlighten me. :lol:

If anyone knows good anime usenet site, you´re also free to tell. :P

I've never used usenet.

I tend to prefer torrents.

Speaking of which, we're in the process of adding our own tracker here. ;)

I´m kind of paranoid so torrents are even worse than file hosters. :sofa:

There are many law firms in germany that specialised in tracking torrent downloaders and sending them expensive warning letters ( ~1000€).

But ours will be from a private tracker! Hosted by us, for us. Therefore nothing to worry about. Just have to wait until it is set up!

Keep in mind, though, that access may be restricted in some way or another.

We'll keep you guys posted as we near launch.

I download anime from crazy places but never usenets before but to take a guess why there's no anime on them is because it not that properly (sad but the highest possibility).

I stick to mainly torrents, but I do things to protect myself like redirecting the torrent to another place and then it forwarding it to via a direct highspeed download

I recently used usenet to grab a couple BD's that weren't seeded on ADC. Average download speed of 8mb/s (100mbit connection). I was quietly surprised.

I never did like the idea of downloading through usenet... The idea of spending money to pirate something, really? Yeah, youre really spending money on the usenet experience, etc, but the end result is what I just said.
If people spent their time and energy on torrents (a much better idea) then it would be better off than it is now.

Who seeds these torrents for you? If all the seeders were on home connections, I doubt you would see speeds anywhere near what a cheap seedbox would offer...
I guess there are two types of people though. Those who care about the community and help out, and those who expect everything for free.

My provider doesn't allow me standard Usenet, and paying for Usenet costs money (money I would rather put elsewhere and use torrents instead).

All the offers of Usenet on the internet seemed like a scam, even though I know Usenet... I guess it's an okay idea idea after all.

Standard implementation of fansub distribution over IRC works kindof the same way, right?

Yes, the other methods of distributing content are a lot better than the likes of Usenet. But when you are looking for, say, a two year old torrent that's been dead for a year, there is no better place than Usenet.
I personally prefer xdcc and torrents. If they aren't available then I will use filehosts.

I have been tempted to ask members here to ship me a HDD loaded with anime.
" here is $200, now give me 2tb of anime!"

1) Hard disk drives are still super expesive from where they were a year ago.
2) Putting a data-filled disk platter that is meant to be perfectly balanced through the rigors of national/international shipping is hazardous at the least.

I can definitely recommend this if you have low bandwidth or caps on your connection.
I've traded many TB's this way with a friend of mine who lives in Belgium, where they have like 10GB/month caps.

1) Hard disk drives are still super expesive from where they were a year ago.
2) Putting a data-filled disk platter that is meant to be perfectly balanced through the rigors of national/international shipping is hazardous at the least.

1) If you're gonna buy one anyway, you might as well buy it filled with anime.
2) Nonsense, I've shipped and received dozens of hard drives around Europe without one ever being DOA. And even if it dies on arrival you can claim your warranty.

So, do you use styrofoam or something?

You can use pretty much any material as long as the drive can't move within the package and you have enough space between the drive and the box.
With bubble plastic I usually have like 5cm between the box' edges and the hard drive. With foam you could probably do with 2cm.
The material is only meant to absorb the collisions.

I usually just use the single drive boxes WD gives me, they have 2 pieces of hard formed plastic which keeps the drive in the middle of the box.
Or if you got a retail drive, you can use the box it came in for instance. Ofcourse you'll need to put another box around it though. :P

Says a guy who downloads things instead of supporting the people who created it by paying for dvds/blu-rays.

Bit of a pain to read, but if you are seriously interested in it.

Also remember that a drive locks once they power down, it takes a pretty hard impact to damage them in that state.
