1980 Posting

Postby ukcharts » Tue Feb 09, 2010 1:53 am

We're undergoing final preparations for posting 1980 at the moment. Due to the sheer size and volume, we're looking for people to help spread the load. Anyone that can help by downloading a portion of the post (25, 50, 100 tracks) from our server and then uploading to the newsgroup, please leave a reply here or get in touch with one of the team directly.

I think I can upload - I've never done it before! - so if I can be 'hand held' through it I'm happy to try.

A quick posting guide, presuming you're using a windows based thingy... !

1. Download the attached program (an updated version of the popular PowerPost) and unzip (it's in it's own directory).
2. Run the POWRPOST.EXE
3. From the menu item "View", edit your "Program Settings" (also CTRL-P). You will need to change your newsgroup host and any username and password you use to access that host in the "News Server" tab.
4. The program is automatically set up to enable you to try posting a test to alt.binaries.test (see the "Newsgroup" tab. Here you can add in other newsgroups, you'll need to add alt.binaries.sounds.1980s.mp3 at some point
5. Under the "File" menu, "Add Files to Queue" (CTRL-Q). Add a file or two and it brings up an "Adding Files" window with 4 tabs. The first tab is the post subject. $F is the filename, and the only requirement, but feel free to play. The second tab is the list of newsgroups. Select alt.binaries.test for now. The third and fourth tabs play no part here.
6. Click Ok and you go back to the main window with your newly selected files now listed. Menu item "Files" -> "Start Posting" (CTRL-R) will start uploading.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Hi

I am trying to sort out posting rights with my Newsgroup host.

If I get these I will be happy to post some for you. Let you know if and when it's done.

Archive 03 posted, getting archive 09.

Until recently if anyone said I'd have a copy of "Captain Beaky" let alone posted it onto Usenet I'd have laughed in their face. :lol:
