At least update the status / news on the front page and let your members... er CUSTOMERS... know that there is a problem and that YOU KNOW about it. :roll:

Thanks !

I find it useful when SuperSearch is down or I'm surfing and want to know if something is available on usenet.

In fact, I've got this handy bookmarklet that searches for any highlighted word in my browser.

Code: Select all

javascript:q%20=%20""%20+%20(window.getSelection%20?%20window.getSelection()%20:%20document.getSelection%20?%20document.getSelection()%20:%20document.selection.createRange().text);%20if%20(!q)%20q%20=%20prompt("You%20didn't%20select%20any%20text.%20%20Enter%20a%20search%20phrase:",%20"");%20if%20(q!=null)%20location="http://www.newzleech.com/?m=search&q="%20+%20escape(q).replace(/%20/g,%20"+");%20void%200

maybe there is some other better indexer overall.

But as far as newsleecher goes ... suppa duppa search works best cuz it's tightly integrated into the main app. doing web site nzb things is a hassle for tha lazy azz newsleecher ... It alll works good as long as the fn suppa duppa searcher server is werkin... :roll:

The SuperSearch server was down on the weekend but it has been working for a couple of days. If you are still having problems, please read over this thread
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.

Thanks, supersearch was down again (second day in a row) and this helped me out. It may not find everything but my search for colbert worked very well.

At least they are working. It appears that the search engine stays more time off than online. They shoul at least have the decency to extend the epiration date on the subscription to compensate for the outages.
