Let me preface by apologizing in advance! I'm probably going to ask for a few different things here over the next few weeks and don't want you guys to think i'm a nag. I would download all of them from myspleen, but bittorrenting ALWAYS get's my upspeed bandwidth THROTTLED (damn cablevision). I need that speed for my Vonage phone! ANYWAY. . .onto the request. . .

Could anyone be kind enough to upload the Wookie Groomer Split Screen (all 3 Discs) to alt.binaries.starwars? I'd really like to see this version!

What's alt.binaries.starwars, guys?

It is a usenet news group. If you search in this thread, you will find links with guides on how to use it.
Basically the concept is as such: A DVD is beeing split to multiple pieces of a certain size, in .rar files. Then each .rar file is posted as several mail posts (the usenet program you will use will automatically combine all the posts to one, containing the .rar file). You have to download all the .rar files and then decompress using winrar.
In case you miss any of the .rar files in the sequence, there are .par files posted as well. A par file is a file that can replace ANY .rar you might miss.
Newsgroups are not in the web, there are dedicated news servers (like e-mail or irc servers).
Unfortunatelly, in order to have good newsgroup service to get your job done, you have to pay for a newsgroup server. I would recommend you watch this thread, and if you see something beiing posted that intrests you, then subscribe and get it. You should pay attention on the date of things beeing posted, because when something is posted, it doesen't stay for ever. Good usenet servers keep the file for 10-15 days.
I was reluctant to pay for this service as you might be at first, because I wasn't sure if I would manage to get what I wanted.
I subscribed to a cheap service (www.news.astraweb.com 25GB for $10) thinking that even if i did not manage to get the file I wanted, the loss would not be a great one. I suggest you do the same thing.
Hope this was helpfull.
And now, for your feature presentation:
The Classic Re-re-re-release of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back.
In this version the word "WOOKIE" has been changed to "HAIR CHALLENGED ANIMAL" and the entire cast has been digitally replaced by Ewoks.

Not necessarily; the usenet service provided by my ISP (ntl) is quite good. OK so retention times are lower than a premium paid service, and the high-traffic groups are not available, but it "gets the job done" for me!

Hey gang,

After some local Star Wars activities on my end...I'm back with a vengeance! I've been out of the loop a bit here but I will be catching up doublequick.

...as far as alt.binaries.starwars goes...
Here's what to expect in the order that I'll be posting:

- a complete reposting of Dr. Gonzo's "Making of a Trilogy vol.2" (I screwed up the par2 set on the first post)
this is starting to be uploaded tonight.

- all 3 WookieeGroomer split-screen DVDs will follow afterwards (pending other postings).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

...as far as further volumes of "The Revenge Will Be Televised"...

- The second and third volumes should be done this weekend and posted on a.b.starwars
I'll send a set to Rik for distribution and I'd also be willing to send a set to someone to torrent them on Demonoid if anyone's interested...PM me.

"The Revenge Will Be Televised" is a series of DVDs that have various goodies that were on TV to promote RoTS. Nothing too spectacular, but cool to have and preserve if you're a fan.

Thanks to the EditDroid creator(s) for posting the "official" ROTJ DVD-ROM content in a.b.starwars

It includes two Lapti Neks (Club mix & Dub mix) as well as the JACKET_P directory
all missing from the aptly-named "Missing Content" torrent.

However, in practice you must take into account the “fuckwit factor”. Just talk to Darth Mallwalker…

Darth Mallwalker,

Is that all that's missing? Was there any missing ANH content from the "missing content" torrent? Anyway, would someone who is into the usenet thing be able to torrent these few left-out bits?

To contact me outside the forum, for trades and such my email address is my OT.com username @gmail.com

This certain DVD...is it the one we've seen before, or is it a special Zion version?

Does this certain DVD have an X and an 0 in it?

No?
