How reliable are the Netherland News Servers

Postby eclapwannabe » Wed Oct 12, 2016 6:05 pm

I just tried d/L 2 chunks of files from Astraweb and half the files in those chunks are not on their servers.
The headers are about 27 months old.

I have been thinking of trying a block account from one of the Netherland News Providers. Tweaknews in particular. They state 1100 Days of retention but I would need to pay in euro's. What I would like to do is buy a prepaid visa card and load it with euros. That way I would only be paying an exchange rate one time. How would I go about this? Are there other NL news providers that people have had good result from them, retention and reliable headers?


Any input in this matter would be appreciated.

TIA

I like Usenetserver for old stuff that's typically not DMCA'd. For DMCA you probably have to use a foreign server.

I had an account with tweaknews a couple years ago. I found it was good for some things, but the retention wasn't good. I also have a usenetserver account that I'm happy with, but like pretty much all of them, they're subject to dmca. I found that tweaknews was much slower to take down stuff. But if I was looking for something over a few months old, it was often very incomplete, and not due to dmca.
