Under $6/mon for usenet is a great price. I've used newsdemon in the past and had a good experience

thanks

With all the takedown notices, is it even worth using usenet anymore? Where's the best place to get Nzb's nowadays?

Great offer! thanks.

most of the good ones nowdays requires an invite
you can try nzb.is 
the usenet deal is solid though. got great speeds last time i used them. td's are going to be synonymous with all otherwise.

Great price for unlimited usenet. Works out to under $6/mo. Highwinds provider, if that matters to you

what is this for? like a proxy server to avoid tracking of your web usage/downland/torrentz etc.?

Great deal! Most news providers limit you to about 2 gigs a month.

Imagine a time before the www and before any file sharing when people would upload messages and share discussion and news to groups based on topics. Your newsgroup provider would keep copies of the messages and send copies you make out to everyone else's provider so you were all reading the same discussion in your newsgroup reader program.

Then imagine taking those messages and encoding files into them using a binary to text conversion process. New newsgroups were formed specifically for these binary messages. 

Then imagine those files being broken up into multiple parts over dozens or more of newsgroup messages and a method for recreating missing pieces was created. Even if your newsgroup server was missing g pieces you could still recreate the whole file.

Then imagine owners of digital content using takedown notices to have files removed.

Then imagine an encoding service which renames and randomizes the files to try to evade detection. You subscribe to this service so you know which files to download from your provider.

And you'll be close to understanding what newsgroups are and how they (now) work.
