Piracy is wrong, it hurts most industries that produce digital media, its illegal and its naughty. We don't support piracy. We buy stuff we want but there are times when you may want to download public domain media. Stuff that has no copyright and you are free to get from the internet. Free music, Free amatur films, Open source software or games. even web TV shows. There are lots of reasons to use Usenet or even torrents that don't involve breaking the law. this guide is for those times. if you choose to use this information to get illegally copied and distributed material then its your doing not ours. - we don't pirate stuff here at Quest Hard or affiliated sites.
Great, now thats out the way let me first tell you that Usenet is an ancient (born, like me in 1980) method of transferring messages and later binary files through either. Have a wikipedia link if you want some home work.
Basically unlike torrents you don't share files with other people, you download them from a server. The server has something called 'retention' as long as the file is younger than the 'retention' of your server you should be able to download the file you want.
