    I've had enough with astraweb. I've shifted to ewaka and tweaknews. haven't had a single failed download yet, no more DCMA takedowns.

    Yeah takedowns seem to have killed EN as well.

    Oh and I was using "Usenetserver" which is an astraweb reseller. If you're using an astraweb reseller, you'll be just as borked

    Might have already been listed in this thread but is there a list of the "good" providers to go with?

    Astraweb reseller? I thought they had no resellers...and last time I checked usenetserver was on a different cluster, unless they were bought out...in which case I'm pissed as I buy yearly usenetserver and monthly astraweb.

    Every time I check the connections in sab, they always point to astraweb.

    I had a post somewhere (I think on hardforums) which had the info saying Usenetserver was a reseller

    So EN is a Highwinds reseller....so I assume all the rest of those resellers are also effected by the takedowns?

    I have astra with a BlockNews block account as backup and don't have many failures. Most of the failures I have are CRC. It is the really old weird stuff that fails due to not enough blocks.

    Are you referring to Article identifier? Because that is the provider the file was orignally uploaded to

    Aha, that would make more sense. Still, it's a PITA.

    Wow, couch potato just had a full spasm and added about 15 or so, most that shouldn't even be available until 2015. Stupid thing.

    3 completed. I bet they're all trash.

    Me 3, that is unfortunate.

    Also lately there has been a lot of missing blocks on alot of servers but the word is the servers that propagate the content have been delaying. So they suggest people try again after 12 hours. So i have been doing that and it's been successful.
