A warm welcome to usenet.de, where you will find everything you wish to know about
the Usenet and Downloading from the Usenet. Many people
are not precisely aware of how the Usenet works and of what is available in the
Usenet newsgroups. This website will attempt to explain things.
Downloading from the Usenet
Perhaps you have already heard of downloading from the Usenet. Downloading from the Usenet operates in a very similar way to sending messages, although a so-called binary file (or "binary" for short) is sent. The sending of files normally takes place in binary newsgroups. These are also referred to as binaries. You will recognise these binary newsgroups from the name of the newsgroup itself, for example alt.binaries.games. In order to be able to read or reply to messages and to download files which have been posted, you will require a Usenet Reader. This is frequently an extremely complicated piece of software which needs to be used to put downloaded files back together again (the files are often sent in the form of "chunks"). The Usenet structure and the fact that the downloading and recompiling of these files was only possible with the assistance of complex software meant that the Usenet remained a playground for computer geeks for some considerable time. Today, however, a large number of good commercial alternatives are available, making the Usenet software easy to operate. One example is the Usenext software which recompiles separated files fully automatically. Usenet software also uses special Usenet servers, enabling you to download as much content as you wish at full speed in exchange for a low monthly fee. Server retention time is 200 days for files and 1,000 days for text messages. To find out more, visit Downloading from the Usenet...
