Post by kevinivek »

Will supersearch be updated to accommodate this?

I just got that notice aswell :) (... sweet ...)

But yes, I'm sure newsleecher will be updated to support futher search retention, mind you it would be nice if it went upto 280 days or something being that often in certain groups the actual retention held is longer then stated by giganews.

Their website now advertises 240 days retention. Hopefully Newsleecher will have an update soon.

Why not have a custom value that we can set up in the option dialogues?

Well, anyway, this needs to be implemented. :)

That isn't a bad idea. Leave the field blank and the user types in the age. Either or doesn't matter. I got excited seeing the new beta and then saw this hasn't been changed. Hopefully you guys are working on this...

We are working on a new SuperSearch engine that will be able to hold a LOT more but it will not be available until a 64bit version of the Delphi compiler is available in early 2009.

Currently the SuperSearch limitation (190 days general, 75 days erotic) is due to the amount of memory used by the index and that it is built in a 32bit environment. As soon as we can switch to 64bit, there is the posibility of thousands of days indexed, not that any news provider would have that kind of rentention.
Please be aware of and use the following pages...
Services Status Page : SuperSearch and Usenet Access server status, retention, server load, indexing time, etc.
Support Request Form : Use this if you have a problem with billing or account status. The forum is only for NewsLeecher application issues.

I don;t know about the search back end, but newsleecher itself is. There's nothing wrong with that...

Once again newsleecher fails to stay ahead of the game. Thankfully newzbin learned their lesson and did this go around. I know newzbin is not a newsreader but it is similar to supersearch. If newsleecher was smart they would of been proactive and prepared for a retention upgrade by giganews. It always happens and will happen again. I bet the next time newsleecher will be behind again by the time they just caught up.

What, when we go to 128-Bit Operating Systems?
Once they go 64-Bit there will be no issue.

Yeah, come on guys, how sloppy is that!! I mean, next time you see such a problem, write your own Delphi compiler ;-)

What it is about whining before reading?

You know what would be sweet? Newzbin integration.
Type in a postnumber and RnE does the rest.
(you can see check SABnzbd to see how it's done)

I know they are somewhat of a 'competitor' but it would be frakkin' great.

Since you seem to be so brutal in your criticism, may I suggest coding your own apps? 40 a year equates to approximately three dollars a month (three and one third). This is not a ridiculous sum, for the quality one receives. Additionally, since we're on the subject of being smart, your phrase, "...they would of..." should be replaced with "...they should HAVE..." Remember that this is an application that takes time to write, troubleshoot, and update/upgrade. Rather that bitch and piss and moan about what you're not getting, offer a suggestion as to how to correct. This kind of post helps no one.
When rational thought precedes action, justice almost invariably prevails.
