So I went into trouble shooting mode. Rather than just get the release index and
create my own nzb, I loaded up Newsbin for Astraweb and downloaded headers so
that I can view the posting to see how complete it is or is not. At least this way I
can hang onto my block credits instead of wasting them on a non-recoverable post.
One particular posting showed no incompletes, having already tried that posting as
mentioned previously. So I tried downloading that one straight from Newsbin. There
were incompletes, same ones actually, so what is going on? This process will not be
an option either. Incomplete files will generally stall at 98%.
In Altbinz, I loaded every Astraweb server I had info on, 6 or 7. This also did not improve
my completion rate.
There is obviously something going on here and the customer is paying for it. Ultimately,
it's buyer beware and good luck finding something solid. When I first joined, my completion
rate was not an issue (3 months or so ago).
Things really went bad after my next block account purchase and I have already wasted a
good portion of that because of this issue. The only choice for me now is who to try next...
