More about alt.binaries.nl and binary search
My take on the situation is that alt.binaries.nl is either blocked or has been forced to cease operation. I suspect the latter. But don't dispair. In the US, I can use Google to search with the search term "binary search" and I can find the new alternative to alt.binaries.nl. I find that the new site is probably superior to alt.binaries.nl. One question is if anyone in Europe can see the new site, or if it is blocked. We want a binary search capability to look for various sorts of binary files in news groups. The good binary search sites don't keep content on their server and only look at headers (and information about attachments).
