Well, you'll need a news reader (Microsoft Outlook express is okay and comes free with Internet Explorer 4 and above... Agent is good to, it's at: http://www.forteinc.com)
Then, you'll need to find out the settings for your Internet Providers news-server and put this info into the newsreader settings, and then go to the above-mentioned groups and download them.
Please note that the servers will dump the uploads within a few days. The length of retention time is dependant on your Internet Provider. Some keep longer than others.
Also, I have a shared folder that is accessible from the normal world wide web. I'll have more info on that posted here soon. It might be easier, but the space is limited (only 300megs right now).
p.s. Some Internet Providers ban some or all of the alt.* groups, because there are some objectionable groups therein.
: This is great to hear, but how about someone explaining to us of 1938 technological understanding how to access an alt. site?
: (Seriously, I have no clue how to access an alt. address!
: : Hello all:
: : I've been capturing the episodes of Tales of the Gold Monkey and posting them on the internet to the newsgroups. Primarily, they've been going into alt.binaries.multimedia, and one recently in alt.binaries.vcd.
: : I've just been able to create a new group just for us:
: : alt.binaries.tv.gold-monkey
: : I'll be crossposting to this group all the episodes I have, both in RealMedia and Mpeg format (videoCD compatible). This group can be posted to by anyone. Pictures, sound files and more are welcome.
: : This is mostly for those of you with fast connections (like T1, DSL, cable-modem, etc), unless you've got a lot of time on your hands for downloading. The RealMedia files are typically 140megs (320x200 at 30fps).
: : If you can't download these, see my previous note here about the video tape sources.
