    Not sure which forum to bring this up in so I thought here maybe...

    I'm using my IPs newgroup access new.verizon.net and I do a binsearch and find files in a group called binaries.bonless or something like that but when I select the files to download using a program called Grabit! it says that the group cannot be found on the server.

    How can I get access to those other servers?

    Get a premium usenet server. Your one doesn't carry the group , pretty much nothing you can do except switch.

    Yup. I'd recommend Usenet-News. 110 GB for $24USD (10% of downloads are not counted toward allowance) and the "data block" never expires.
