Usenet and Bit Torrent, give me answers
« on: February 13, 2003, 06:39:08 AM »
I feel pretty stupid, surfing the internet since 96 and still I don't think I've ever used a "usenet"... exactly what is it and where do I find it? Don't just say google! :)

Ok for bit-torrent, yea I know how to leech off people, but how do you use files like off a website and such? I'm a bit confused about that... if no one is on it, won't there be no downloads if people click them?

Usenet is a world-wide distributed discussion system. It consists of a set of "newsgroups" with names that are classified hierarchically by subject. "Articles" or "messages" are "posted" to these newsgroups by people on computers with the appropriate software -- these articles are then broadcast to other interconnected computer systems via a wide variety of networks.

Some helpful links:

Just so you know it took me 0.00001 sec to find this on Google.
