    Dodgammit. If this is gonna be like some private torrent trackers, it's gonna end up being a long-term prowl for sign-ups to re-open.

    1MBit/s sucks ass, but you can't beat free. Especially since it takes forever for new scene content on usenet to hit more publicly available sites. The time spent downloading the file certainly beats the time spent waiting for it to be upped on *insert ROM site here*.

    Usenet is an older way of filesharing. Similar to torrents or limewire, I s'pose.

    1Mbps is worthless. Just pay the 10USD/month for an unlimited Astraweb account.

    It's fucking cheap.

    Your sig is actually spot on. 1MB/s (megabyte) is the same as 8Mbit/s (megabit) which is what your speedtest is reading. So 4500 (4.5Mbit/s * 1000 to make it kilobits), divided by 8 (4500/8) = 562kb/s (kilobytes per sec), which is roughly the speed you said.
