So? Some people don't have broadband. Hell, some people even have to pay
per megabyte that they download. You didn't take them into respect at all.
Not everyone is lucky enough to be able to download all that you've posted.
Jesus, its close to a megabyte that you've posted. Are you ready to send a
money order to all those people that had to download all of that who pay per
MB? I'd like to see mine in the mail tomorrow.

Plus it took me 20 seconds to download all that. Upload the stupid file,
don't put it as an attachment!

Woo! 20 seconds I bet you got really borred. Anyway, I can't help it if
you're ISP is weird or where you live. You can download it if you want and
I'll upload it for you.

Oops. That was my fault. My friend clarifyed to me that Outlook Express
downloads the attachment and the message at the same time and I didn't
notice it was doing this cause I have a higher speed connection. Sorry.

Hey, I have a really quick DSL connection and it still took me something
like 10 seconds to download the post. Attachments in newsgroups is a no-
thing, one should provide a link instead (if one feels it necesary to
attach something, 50kb is the Über-giga-max size limit that's acceptable).
Bad bluemoon, bad!

There was nothing technically wrong with the post you did with XNews.
The attachment decoded ok. The post just got sent as 2 because you
reached a limit. That is normal behaviour.

In non-binary NGs it should at least be announced in the
subject if there's an attachment.

I will keep most of my thoughts about your extremely arrogant
answer for me. Just so much : This is a global community and
not all places on the earth have the same infrastructure.
Some places are too far from towns, some countries have no DSL
and no cable at all in most regions.


Bluemoon knows about the problem so it should be OK now.


If you want to learn more about it, mr. big mouth, read about
newsgroup nettiquette before you post such a crap.

Ananas already said what I'm going to say, but just in case you didn't understand it, I'm going to spell it out for you.

Not everyone can get broadband.
Take the very small effort required to be polite and considerate of others.
Learn about newsgroup policies.
Be efficient.
For the love of all that is holy, post binaries in binary groups. Keep the rest as plain-text as possible. Logical, eh?

One example of basic newsgroup rules:

Lol, I have a fast DSL line already and it still took me 10 seconds to
download it because the newsserver is slow. Anyway, most of us have better
things to spend our bandwidth on than downloading bots we don't even want
(my ISP has a 1GB/month limit, if you exceed it without paying for an
increase they have fun setting you back to 64kbps for the following
month...).

Yes you probably can, it looks like the bulk of this program was in that
image it displays.

Yeah the image file is a 63kb jpg. The bot was written in Delphi and there's
not actually much code to it. All it does is go through a loop that checks
each cit number. everytime it gets a "not a cit" error it adds one to the
error count when the error count gets above the error count limit it stops.
Sence if you get 1000 not a cit errors in a row there probably aren't any
more cits after that :) When I get all the features working I'm going to
release the source so you can see it for yourself ^_^.

The key is based on your machine code so a code for my computer wouldn't
work on yours.

That's so silly, they said they would send it via e-mail. It must be
something via the web.

there was no warning, and aw does have to pay for the bandwidth that goes
through here, ya know.

561kb is only half a meg.... at 128kb sec... that's not huge

You download more than that just by surfing the internet every day.... chill

It is inefficient and unnecessary to post such large files in a non-binary group.

This type of argument has been made many times in newsgroups, and each time it's been crushed.

Can't the newsgroup server simply disallow attachments to posts?
