Where are the newsgroup tutorials?

Postby thecaller » Mon May 17, 2010 4:17 am

Guys i am trying to locate tutorials on newsgroups. There are many but with conflicting information. I'm beginning to get frustrated with all of it.

I downloaded a nzb file and after completion i see many files named from r00 to r37. There is also .par2 file and a single .rar file. Some of these files have a winrar association but others have no icon associated with them. When i double-click and extract the files associated with winrar, i get an error message - "No files to extract"? What do i do now?

I know my situation would have been played out many times, so therefore i would like to read a tutorial in helping me understand how to correctly download and using newsgroups.

Sorry if the question has been asked before, but i searched the forum for tut's but was mostly shown ubuntu tuts!

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

There are 10 types of people in the World; those who understand binary, and those who do not.
