    Yup,I saw a DVD screener of 300 on usenet a little while after the release.

    So i assume they got pretty much anything.

    As the last poster says, you can get everything from the newsgroups. Giganews is the best, but they charge you for it. I'm with a service that costs 1/2 as much as I can get everything off it I want.

    I think I'm going to sign up for giganews again. I usually do the unlimited service for a month and get what I want then do it again a few months down the road.

    If you don't see what you want, you can always put in a request and see if someone uploads it. I usually get my rare movies and music off that thing and it's much better than using bittorrent since I go at max speed.

    I don't use newsgroups simply because I can't afford to use them. My ISP only gives me 1 gig of free newsgroup downloads a month. [​IMG]

    heres what i did


    get giganews unlimited.

    get a 500 gig external harddrive

    sign up for an account at http://v3.newzbin.com (less than 2 bucks for 30 days access)

    search for whatever you want. simple as pointing clicking and downloading the .nzb file and the search retention is as long as the retention giganews has.

    oh silly @theorgan
    dont pay 2 bucks when you can use binsearch.info or binsearch.net for free.

    usenetserver is 100days retention and cheaper than giganews

    EDIT: omg i just saved you 7 bucks which is half the subscription to usenetserver.
