Usenet for ROMs, ISOs & Games: A Beginner's Guide
SIGN UP for Usenet Access: 14 DAYS / 150GB FREE!
Did you know that you could log onto Usenet to get all your files at BLAZING download speeds ? Usenet is the resource that nobody talks about. It's the place where all your downloads and more can be had with the greatest ease. This guide will teach you how to get comfortable with a Usenet client. You can usually access usenet for discussions and newsgroups for free, however to download huge amounts of data, you usually need a subscription to one of the usenet services on the internet. There are a number of usenet servers that are cheap and affordable, and most give you 24 hour trial periods however:
For a limited time, Binverse, a usenet provider is offering emuparadise.org users an *EXCLUSIVE* 14-day trial to their usenet server. To sign up for this service check out BINVERSE. You'll need to enter your payment information but this trial is for 14 days, NO STRINGS attached. Download 5GB of data at your MAX download rate and get a 1MBps download speed thereafter for the rest of the period. Pretty impressive! If you're unhappy with the service [after downloading over 150GB of data..], just cancel within 14 days and you will NOT be charged. Pretty awesome in my books..
So a lot of you are wondering how this usenet service actually works. Well, it's pretty simple. Once you sign-up at Binverse, you download their usenet client. The Binverse client is only available for Windows users however, I've compiled a simple how-to for Mac Users below. Read on!
Setting up Binverse and getting your files is REALLY easy. It takes just 4 EASY steps to start downloading at blazing fast speeds!
Sign up for a BINVERSE account if you haven't already. Emuparadise visitors are getting an EXCLUSIVE FREE 14 day trial. NO STRINGS ATTACHED!
