    So, I'm going to start to use Usenet for downloading Wii games, (yes whatever, I'm a pirate) and I was just wondering if I've got this right

    1) Buy a binary Usenet server (with SSL encryption?) thing from somewhere
    2) Get a newsreader and set it up and everything
    3) Go on an .nzb searcher site and get a .nzb of a game
    4) Download the game

    I should get 4 mb/s dl speeds 'cause that's my connection (see sig)

    Have I got this right? Anything else I need to know?

    Thanks for your help

    nope thats it.

    1) newsdemon
    2) get grabit...it's free and amazing
    3) if you want i could invite you to newzbin. its like 1.20 a month but its worth it.
    4) should get about 500-600kbs with your speeds.

    Thanks, I'll take you up on that invite! [​IMG]

    Do the invites expire? As in if you send it now, will it still work in January because I'll be joining Usenet when I get my new laptop for Xmas (writing this on my Wii)

    Just create a free account with the invite. You don't need to pay to make the account.
    I just hate the fact that Newzbin doesn't take PayPal payments anymore. I hunted down an invite for nothing.

    My method of choice:

    As for SSL, if it is free then do it. If you have to pay for it then consider not doing it (try it with and try it without, SSL can get around limits but tiscalli are pretty good about that sort of thing).

    I agree tiscali are as bad as BT or Virgin in some regards and would certain not suggest using them over someone like Be Unlimited but I found them to be OK if you did not go for the uber cheap package and did not have to call their support.
