Is there a way to recover and collect former Usenet postings without long searches?

Question by Bobby: Is there a way to recover and collect former Usenet postings without long searches?
A couple of years ago, I posted many usenet postings about collectors items such as antiques to Usenet groups (using a different pen name) but never kept a copy.

Now I am thinking of making a blog to the same subjects and I would like to recover my former postings but I have the impression that Google archive is no longer that good and it is very time consuming to search for each of the postings that I made talking about the wonderful hobby of collecting things.

Do you know a way or a trick to get all your postings back quickly?

I tried the Google function “Search postings by this poster” but it is not working. I don’t find my old postings anymore…

Q&A: are there any other programs like usenet, but better?

Question by jettamadness: are there any other programs like usenet, but better?
i am familiar with programs like utorrent, mininova, isohunt, etc.

i see usenet is different…can u pull .avi, .rar files that may be on there? and how do u “pull them in”…does your pc recognize them?

do u have to have another program besides one like usenet to go along with it or just that one?…and last, are those programs for free?

Answer by Sparkling Wiggles
Usenet isn’t a program but a protocol. I think you mean UseNext, the newsreader. There are plenty of free newsreaders, but you need to subscribe to a server to see most good newsgroups.

The newsreader I use is Grabit:

I subscribe to Giganews:

Is there a Usenext trial without subscription?

Question by dionysos: Is there a Usenext trial without subscription?
Usenext is offering a 14 day trial for its usenet service. Thats fine so far but the downside is that you have to give them your details and agree to a subscription plan if you not cancel in time. Does anyone know if there is a way to try out usenext without subscription?

Q&A: Is there a way to download new headers in all newsgroups at the same time using Windows Mail?

Question by oklasoonerpoet: Is there a way to download new headers in all newsgroups at the same time using Windows Mail?
I used to be able to do this in Outlook Express and I believe the function was synchronize. Any help is much appreciated. Do not suggest I use a different newsreader as I am not looking at UseNet newsgroups but private newsgroups.

Q&A: Why are there unauthorized charges to my prepaid visa debit card from apple itunes?

Question by Jay: Why are there unauthorized charges to my prepaid visa debit card from apple itunes?
I just bought a prepaid visa debit card last week and I’ve just recently checked my prepaid card’s balance and there is like 7 charges of APL* MOBILE ME and 1 charges from USENET.NL but I dont remember using my card for APL MOBILE ME or USENET.NL.

Can anybody tell me why there are so many charges for stuff that I’ve never heard of?

Best answer:

Answer by Thomas
Cancel that card asap before more charges occur! Obviously some thief has it. Same thing happened to me yesterday. APLmobileme is through the apple store. I contacted them per my credit card telling me I should, and they said only the credit card can fix it. I have many others, blockbuster.com, some chldrens book place, etc...
