Newsgroups: "binaries" - What the..?
Posted on 2001-06-05
I am completely baffled by binaries newsgroups. I am trying to access some MP3s which have been posted...
Can anyone direct me to a clearly written, easy to follow explanation of how these work?
Any webpages I've found are as clear as mud. Surely it can't be THAT difficult?!!??!!!
Previously tried to do it on Free Agent but huge files, supposedly of several songs,produced 39 seconds of MP3.
In the newsgroup, I typically see "part 1 0f 5", "part 2 of 5", "part 3 of 5" but they never seem to have the full numerical sequence. Sometimes even "part 0 of 5"!!! (Since when did we count with zero?)
