Happy New Year Pete.

Is the list of newsgroups lists on the FAQ page, the complete list that your NewzNab uses ??

TIA.

Not exactly -- I'm importing from archives that use groups that aren't regularly updated. Also, some groups listed aren't actually being updated (only a few) during the import and will be backfilled later.

Why?

Thanks.

You're in for a world of hell. I have probably spent a good 70-80 hours fixing their code and optimizing how their database and process works for the version we use here.

Thanks for the heads-up.

It all seems to be a very slow, laborious process, and this is the quiet season !!

There's so much crap uploaded to UseNet as well.

Only if you use the default scripts/procedures. You'll find you'll need to optimize the hell out of it, too.

It's an amateur project... and lots of it is done really well, but there's huge gaping holes where it isn't.

There's gonna be a lot more NewzNab servers popping up, so hopefully the additional donations will spur them on to a better package.

What do you mean "gonna be" ... there's already hundreds that have popped up in the last 5 weeks since NZBMatrix went down. :P

I think the influx of new sites is finally dwindling.
