What are these postings??

Postby markeh » Thu Jul 29, 2021 12:48 am

I don't get around usenet as much as I used to.
Looking in a.b.e-book, I see a lot of subject headers like the following:

uMSLZYpXnz,UmwBHGeGRL671761578-01.nzb HMP-26
uMSLZYpXnz,gONokHkVXL671761614-02.nzb FA-26
uMSLZYpXnz,UWJWcuTUmq671761646-03.nzb DW-26

Mostly curious, can anyone point me to some information as to what these are??

Lots of usenet postings have gone private using encryption. Some postings are NZB File only now too meaning header downloads won't return usable date for these posts. There are still people posting the old fashioned way too though.

For these NZB's in particular. I'd probably download one then feed it to Newsbin and see what comes out.
