700mb AVI is 716800kb at 6kb/s average it would take 119467secs or 33 hours. I will leave it up to you to decide if it is worth it.

1. Download the following
a. A newsreader like Xnews or Agent from
b. WinRAR, also from
c. SmartPAR from ***********

2. Call your ISP and ask them what your news server (or nttp address) is. This is also usually found on the documentation they gave you.

3. Install your news reader program (I forgot to mention that Microsoft Outlook is NOT a suitible newsreader). It will ask your for YOUR news server address. Input it and wait while the news reader gathers a list of groups.

4. Find and subscribe to the groups you choose. The rules do not allow the posting of the group names but it should start with alt.binaries.and contain what your looking for (vcd, etc). This should not be difficult to find.

5. View the headers in the group (double click, usually) and find the movie your looking for. They will be split into sections and look like this:

6. Download all the parts. And use WinRAR to combine, leaving you with your movie.

7. The par files (.p01, .p02, etc) are only used if you are missing parts or have corrupted parts. Download one par file for every bad or missing file you have and use SmartPAR to fix.
