I just tried it, there's definitely a problem on the Supersearch end. y0himba, if Supersearch used to work for you and it's not working now, it usually means Supersearch is down, you should come to this forum and report it -- no need to check your firewall each time. Supersearch is up about 95% of t...

Sorry, Magsel.

Some users equate "down" with not working properly, I think that's why you're seeing posts that seem to you as if they're off topic.

Where do you think Politrix should have posted his/her concern?

Politrix, The reason you weren't getting any hits searching on alt.binaries.sounds.mp3.complete-cd is because you misspelled it. The group is complete_cd, with an underscore, not a dash. You can specify only part of a group name, so you can search on "#altbin@efnet group:complete" (without quotes). ...

Hey, Smudge,

Smithmum said he turned off Avast and tried SS, to no avail.

Is it possible to *think* you turned off Avast and didn't? Can the mere presence of Avast on one's computer affect SS?

Smithmum, One thing to try is to turn your Firewall and your Virus Checker completely off, and if you have a separate real-time spyware checker turn that off, too. Then try the search again. If it works, then you know the problem is with one of them, and you can narrow it down. (If it works, don't d...

First of all, thanks, Spiril. Your workaround works.

I'm having the same problem as Prodigy about using the little after-the-big-search search filter. Can't figure out the logic for what's not being included.

On the erotica side it's not just missing recent posts, it's not picking up lots of things it has always found before. For instance, last week I'd search for part01.rar during the last day, and I'd get dozens of hits. Now I search for part01.rar for the last 50 days and I get 6 hits. It's not that i...

Phantom, I just searched for and leeched a few ebooks from the general groups and a few dirty pictures from the erotica groups. No problems at all. You might want to check to see if your internet connection and newsgroup server is working outside of Supersearch and NL. I use the free Xnews newsreade...

Just for once I'm going to post a "thank you for fixing it" message instead of the usual gripe.

Like AtomicJew (AtomicJew??? should I be offended?) I'd love to hear what caused this problem.

Here's a weird problem. In the erotica category, no matter how I fill in the search boxes except for max days (min kb, min days, group, etc.) it ignores the search boxes and returns from all groups, any size, any days. Also, again in the erotica category, when I search for "part01.rar" (without quot...

Saturday the 14th around noon in Philly.
Supersearch for the "erotica" category has been down for nearly an hour.

... Ya pay for paradise, all you get is a garbage dump. Actually, SS seems to be up about 95% of the times that I'm trying to use it, which ain't that bad. When it's down, the alternative isn't that bad... you search on binsearch.info, check off what you want and download the nzb, and import the nzb...

I'll repeat what I said before...

All the Newsleecher/Supersearch people have to do when Supersearch goes down is say something somewhere (here? front page?) that you know it's down and you're on it. Communicating with your customers is a good thing!

Well, the porn part's still working so at least I have something to do this evening. :) The "general" part has been down for a few hours. To the Supersearch admins: We don't expect perfection. All we poor grunts need to keep us happy is some sort of indication that you're aware of the problem and ar...

Same here, for about 3 hours. Both areas.
