Updated: 05/10/2005

Newsgroup Pictures Fast!

It's like Magic! Using advanced computer intelligence, Pluckit finds and downloads pictures, movies, and other material that interests you.

Stop wasting time manually searching. Let Pluckit take over and do the work. Just tell it what you want, and then sit back and enjoy the show! 

Pluckit is automatic, intelligent, and gets what you want while rejecting what you do not want. 

Pluckit searches Usenet. Usenet (also known as the newsgroups) was created in the very early days of the Internet. Unfortunately, to this day many people don't know how to access Usenet and benefit from what it has to offer. 

Usenet is a gigantic, global repository of pictures, movies, and music (literally millions of files). These files are submitted by people from diverse countries and cultures around the globe. As a result, Usenet contains a variety of pictures and movies from every culture. From Denmark to Detroit, the people of the world use their computers to exchange material through Usenet. The varied interests of the people of the world are all present there. It is a global community for everyone to take from and give to. 

But the problem is this: 
Usenet is undergoing explosive growth! Manually searching through the millions of Usenet articles to find just that material that interests you is now truly beyond human capability.

Pluckit solves the problem! 
Pluckit is a very smart software agent that works for you. It actually reads usenet articles thousands of times faster than any human being can read! Then, based upon your pre-defined likes and dislikes, it sifts out just what you want.

Just tell Pluckit what you are interested in, then sit back and watch as it scans. Pictures are displayed one after another on the built-in viewers. Leave it overnight and be amazed at what you find in the morning!

SBNews version is 9.4


TBJ Rating:


Updated: 05/10/2005

SBNews/Newsbot is the internet's premier tool for retrieving pictures, music, and other multimedia files from newsgroups! SBNews will go out on the internet for you, find the files you want, exclude those you don't want, and download them to your computer -- all by itself. There's no need to spend hours laboring through newsgroups with cumbersome low-tech tools like Outlook Express and manually decoding news attachments. SBNews/Newsbot finds the files, automatically decodes them and splices multi-part files together.

SBNews/Newsbot is designed to automatically download and uudecode files from binary newsgroups. SBNews makes no limitation on the type of file that can be downloaded -- everything is possible including archives, executable files, sound clips, and images. Small files (such as images) which fit in a single news message work best, as news servers do tend to drop portions of large multi-part files. SBNews will handle multi-part files, although if the news server has dropped part of the file, nothing can be done to reconstruct it.

What are binary newsgroups?
(Presumably you already know this or you wouldn't be here!) Binary newsgroups contain binary files which are typically encoded via uuencode (or mime64) and sent as text. These newsgroups are a popular means of distributing data across a wide area, and in most cases newsgroup access is inexpensive and posting is allowed by anyone. Newsgroup content is very diverse -- including Newsgroups dedicated to archive files, executables, sound clips, images. Most binary newsgroups are in the alt.binaries subtree. The biggest problem is ignoring unwanted, off-topic advertisements (SPAM) which are present in newsgroups, and SBNews is designed with this important feature in mind. 

What kind of binary newsgroups are out there?
There are thousands of newsgroups, on all sorts of subject. The newsgroups contain images, and SBNews excels at downloading from these picture newsgroups. The alt.binaries.sounds and alt.binaries.mp3 newsgroups contain music and sound effects. You can find video files in the alt.binaries.mpeg and alt.binaries.multimedia newsgroups. There are also other newsgroups that contain archive files and executable files. 

SBNews downloads all types of file attachments from newsgroups - jpg, jpeg, gif, bmp, mpeg, mpg, mp3, m2v, mov, avi, rar, zip, wav, and more! 

What special features does SBNews have?
SBNews has many features that make it unique. Most important are advanced methods to lockout and reject unwanted articles. The newsgroups are filled with off-topic advertisements these days and SBNews is an excellent tool to avoid wasting your time downloading junk. There are also extensive duplicate elimination features to avoid downloading the same thing multiple times. SBNews includes a full-featured JPEG/GIF/BMP viewer, as well as thumbnail viewers which show the image download in progress. There are extensive statistical functions to help you keep tabs on what's going on. File Encryption is built in to automatically encrypt sensitive data when it's stored on your hard drive. Although SBNews is intended to automatic and unattended download, manual selection features are present to allow you to manually decide which articles to download. Keyword specification is supported to allow you to further limit downloading to only articles which have a specific keyword field in the subject or author fields.
