Results of SS not available on my servers?

Post by teecee »

I've been trying to figure what server SS moderates to gat the list of headers available. Most of the time, when I try to dl from the results of a search, the files aren't there. The headers were only about 10 days old. I was using Giganews, Newshosting and Teranews. All of these should have handled 10 day old posts. The group was a.b.p.erotica.

maybe the ss is giving you incorrect message-ids, it is however more likely that the post was done with binhex/base64 encoding, newsleecher doesn't support those encoding formats. turn on detailed logging in the options menu and check what the logs says.

Activated the detail log and repeated the search. This is the log it gave me:
12/15/2004 11:31:58 AM Starting Super Search ... Please Wait ...
12/15/2004 11:31:58 AM * Category : Image
12/15/2004 11:31:58 AM * Search For : "*hegre*".
12/15/2004 11:31:58 AM * Max Days : 18 Days
12/15/2004 11:32:00 AM Super Search - Article Entries Fetched!

What should it be telling me?

To further investigate this anomaly, I downloaded the headers for a.b.p.erotica to bnr2. I used the same servers as before. The posts found by SS were not listed here, either

Weird... I get the same problem when using your keyword. I have to admit this is the first time I'm seeing anything like this with SS and my NSP, UNS.
