Re: What to do if SuperSearch seems to be down ?

SS has been down for several hours (connection timeout) and the status page shows errors on the service.

Re: V7 final - Registration problem

It does not instill confidence in me that there's been no response to this for months, and I'm also having the same issue on a program I pay for every month. What the fraK? Please tell me what exactly I'm paying for when the program won't register. The solution on the support page is "download the l...

NL Password Manager doesn't work (6.3b1)

Under the spam detection settings, the fine print on "Passworded RAR Files" says: "Before eventually marking 'Passworded RAR Files' as spam, NewsLeecher will check the password against the custom list of passwords, as specified in the NewsLeecher Password Manager. - The Password Manager can be acces...

minKB broken

5.2 Beta 2. minKB:614400 should be returning files of 600MB and up, but it's returning files as low as 4KB.

SS hanging

"SuperSearch in progress" for the past half hour or so on one search. It was doing it before then too, and restarting didn't help. v5.0b12. I can still do everything else fine in NL, just not search. Just tried the search in the "heart" category too, same thing.

Connections exceeded + hanging connections with Giganews (solved)

I'm on 5.0b12. My internet connection dropped and my ISP assigned a new IP. Everything else is working fine, but NL stopped downloading anything. What I've tried: removed NL and deleted contents of directories completely (%APPDATA% and Program Files). Reinstalled, used default settings to try to dow...

This just happened to me with 5.0b10. I only have 7.5mb down, and the drives it's happening on (one external SATA, one internal PATA) have plenty of free space. I don't know if it's a coincidence, but dropping the number of concurrent threads from 10 (which I've had set for years) to 5 seems to have...

"Newsleecher is pausing to let the download queue catch up: articles are being downloaded quicker than can be written to disk" when downloading to external drive. I'm only on a 7mbit line, the external is USB2.0, 7200RPM, and much fast than anything this computer can throw at it. Reverting to b4 mad...

I have the "pause rar-in-rar" feature enabled, and it froze NL entirely when I hit one of those files.

Did you try Spiril's workaround? Without it, the files are missing from SS results (adding 20 days to mindays to compensate). With it, the files show up. It looks like it is some kind of bug since the results are clearly in the database.

Well let's just use this as the sticky for b3, since one doesn't exist. We need an option to "activate group on selection," perhaps in advanced tweaks. I was also going to complain about the golden stars and how they make it seem like I'm downloading articles through a Wii, but I found the option to...

This is kind of a serious issue, guys. What happens when someone tries to open an .nfo file and winds up opening a trojan-riddled .exe instead?

Here, this is easily replicable. I just picked a random .nfo file from alt.games.binaries.wii and opened it from within the group to verify it's correct. Go to the SS tab and enter this search: 10381 nfo The second entry is '10381 - "square.nfo" ' which is currently showing 33.3 days old on SS (the ...

This is a corrupted ID on the news server, not on our SS server. I don't believe that's what's happening, at least not in my case. I searched for something in SS and tried to download it, and ended up with episodes of a TV show I didn't want. Then I went into the group which still has the files I w...
