Re: "Sampled" articles - only partially downloaded from Superleech

Like you, I have a Ready-To-Go subscription, so also using Newsleecher's servers. Using NL 7.0 Final, I searched for and found a file with the exact same name as in your previous post. All details the same except the posted size was slightly different: 3,247,787 KB instead of 3,245,282 KB. I downloa...

Re: Speed question

On my HTPC I'm getting a little more than the 75 Mbps I'm paying Verizon FiOS for. That's using either NL 7.0 Final or 8.0 Beta 1 UFR5 and Newsleecher's servers. I also got full speed back when I used Giganews and NL 4.0. I've played with the number of connections, currently using 9. I've limited he...

Re: Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

I don't know where Fixxxer found a beta, but as I posted in another thread of this forum (Wishlist for Santa/New version?) I got unofficial forum release #4 (ufr4) from the NewsLeecher site, using a link posted by Spiril back in January. That's about as official as an unofficial release can get. And...

Re: New version?

I just updated to Newsleecher 8.0 Beta 1 unofficial forum release #5, dated 2/6/2019. It's too early to be certain, but so far I've seen none of the error messages or disconnects I had with ufr4. There's a new feature (at least I didn't notice it in ufr4) to show the most recent 24 hours worth of de...

Re: New version?

There's a beta on here somewhere but I can't find it now. Anyhow I'm using it alongside 7 Final Spiril posted a link to an unofficial beta back in January. Here's his post . I've been using it since then, also with 7 Final to fall back on. The beta's best feature is that it renames deobfuscated pos...

i am experiencing article corruption bugs while browsing Usenet groups. Need Help
Everyone did. See the Feb 13 note w/update on the NewsLeecher News & Log tab.

It seems to be fixed for later entries but the corrupted articles may remain corrupted.

Re: Can i Move Group Cached groups to other HDD

The second post in that link is for 4.0 and later, including 7.0 Final (and 8.0 Beta if you're playing with that). The .ini file doesn't exist until you create it and save it to the NewsLeecher program directory. For example, my computer has 3 internal drives: C: for the operating system, D: for pro...

Re: Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

While I would dearly love to be proven wrong, I predict that there will be no V8 (beta or otherwise) before the end of March at the earliest. How about January 5? That's the date Spiril posted a link to a beta , Newsleecher 8.0 Beta 1 unofficial forum release #4. Don't expect perfection. It's a bet...

Re: Can you browse just whole groups without searching?

If I understand what you wanted, that's one of NL's normal options. On the Manager tab, subscribe to the newsgroups you're interested in. On the Articles tab, check the box next to the one(s) you want to see headers for. Right-click to select the number of headers or days to download in all groups. ...

Re: de-obfustication idea/request

It would be good if NL would rename the file after downloading it. Maybe in version 8. Update: Definitely in version 8. Check out this thread which has Spiril's link to an unofficial beta. It does exactly what you asked for. The new layout will take a bit of getting used to but no real problem. Tha...

Re: de-obfustication idea/request

In Advanced Tweaks you can set "Download Descript.ion File Enabled" to TRUE. That will save both the name and subject of each downloaded file to a hidden file called descript.ion in the same directory. Descript.ion originated with JP Software's 4DOS, an alternative to the MS command processor in the...

In the group list under the Manager tab, add a field to show if the group is indexed or not.

Add a universal Stop button

Sometimes I accidentally tell NL to do something that will take a long time, such as when I intend to delete a large block of headers but hit the Enter key instead (they're next to each other on my numeric keypad) and NL starts to download them all. I want to stop it but that takes several steps (pa...
