Can someone explain the Online Storage + VPN options. Anyone use those at this site? Is it easy to use and reliable? fast? 10 dollars a month for all three services seem pretty good, but can't find much information on their website about the VPN and online storage options.

Great Deal! I'm paying the same for usenetserver; and with this you get the online storage and VPN. The VPN goes through SlickVPN and the online storage is with StorageNinja. Not sure how realiable the services are. maybe someone can elaborate more...

just signed up with the $6 account, so far it seems good (I only tried some new articles and speed seems ok, haven't tried with old articles).

Can anybody comment on their DMCA takedown habits?

I am wondering about using this as storage - is it any secure / reliable?
Seems like could be more price-efficient then Carbonite type of services.

the $6 account gives you 10000GB of storage with storage ninja

10 TB for $6 a month? Where do I sign up? Google charges $500 a month for 10TB of storage. This is absolutely a steal.

If it sounds too good to be true... ??

I don't really trust this storage solution. The storage ninja website looks pretty cheesy and has very little information there. How on earth are they going to supply so much storage so cheaply through another website when the pricing on their own website is much more expensive. That doesn't make sense.

Yeah i do not know how it works out but when i signed up for an account it created the storage ninja account and that's what the storage ninja email said. free 10tb with the newsdemon plan.

i have the same deal but its with newsgroupdirect with 30gb storage via storage ninja for $5 a month. Storage ninja is alright. the biggest issue is that they dont have an app to upload and is done via web. it doesnt seem bad but to upload large files you will constantly timeout. Also slickvpn keeps logs. The two most important things about vpns are 1. Performance 2. Do they keep logs? Not necessarily in that order. I hope this helps someone

I remember Usenet's glory days. Now it's just piracy and child porn. What a shame. It was a great resource.

Usenet is dead now with the DCMA takedowns and indexers closing. Especially now that with Bit Torrent you get so much better speeds and reliability of releases, and it's free vs Usenet which you have to pay for. Oh well....the glory days are dead. Back to Torrent.

I did a little research on the 3 companies involved with this deal about privacy and DCMA (as someone asked above) NewsDemon DOES monitor all postings made by the account so if it infringes on a copyright, they will take it down and issue 1 warning after that they just simply ban your account. As for SlickVPN, they monitor almost everything including logging where you connected from and to IP addresses, time stamp, about of data transferred, basically short of the actual data that was transferred and is stated in their terms of use that they have no problems handing it over to any authorities. Storageninja seems pretty laid back though in that they don't actively police data, but do have an option for someone to submit a claim about a violation of DCMA.

If you're going to use it for nefarious purposes or don't like being monitored, not a service for you.

@theoriginalgiga: I think they meant "does NewsDemon respond to DCMA takedown requests?" Obviously they want to monitor what people post THROUGH them, but do they blow away/not mirror DMCA-violating content posted by other users through other providers?

Did more research: newsdemon is a highwinds reseller, who does respond to DMCA takedown requests.

But hey, I have astraweb now for $11/month, if these guys aren't any worse I'll take $6/month and call it a day.

@kstraka: You're absolutely right, I thought they meant did they take down what their users have posted. and for $6 why not right?

they drop you in a split sec
highwind servers not bad, but only few companies truly give you unsensored content (this is one I know, but you get what you paid for)

I cold turkeyed couple months ago, so far no withdrawal yet. Without DMCA I'd be all over this, things HAVE changed.

what's the retention for text?

Nice offer... Thanks OP!!

Just a quick question, under the description of the Platinum Gold Account has:

"$10.00 Monthly UNLIMITED USENET, VPN ACCESS and Unlimited ONLINE STORAGE. Keep it for only $10.00 A Month (Normally $53 A Month)
VPN Account Unblock Websites, Surf Anonymously, Increase Security
Online Storage UnlimitedOnline Storage with 256BIT SSL Encryption and Security
UNLIMITED USENET No Download Caps, 50 Blazing Fast Connections
Free Newsreader Award Winning News Rover News Reader ($30.00 Value)
24/7 Live Support
50 Blazing Fast Connections"

Does this implies that the Platinum Silver Account does have a download cap?

Thanks...

Use a provider outside the US, no DCMA takedowns. Many things posted with false/encrypted filenames as well which are not found by the copyright holder.

Any recommendations? I heard they are more exp and have crappy retention/speed.

If you use a SSL Usenet connection then there should not be any warning from your IPS unless you are adding files to Usenet; Correct?

Tweaknews and Thundernews have servered me well

Also not found by ordinary people who merely want to d/l it.

I can't find any option/application/add-on to upload multiple files or some sort of automation for the backups ...
Can anyone suggest anything?
