Mar 1st 2017
Usenet has been growing so quickly in the last month that I was having problems keeping the GrabIt Search engine up to date and running correctly. I installed some extra hardware last week to compensate, but now we have reached a technical limit inside GrabIt 1.7.3 so it can't download articles newer than January 2017 (The 'No articles for this Grab' error message).

I just finished moving into a different house and I didn't have time to work on GrabIt 2.0 at this time. But since the GrabIt Search is not usable at the moment, I will release a patch to fix GrabIt 1.7.3 today. Please stay tuned. Sorry for the inconvenience and the wait.

Jan 31st 2017
We have a problem with one of our main servers. So some of the services are unavailable at the moment. We are working on it.

UPDATE: murphy's law in action. Server had hardware problems. Hardware replaced. Then while trying to change some configuration on the server to boot with the new hardware, my internet connection went down. So started using Internet from my smartphone which died 10 minutes later. Everything is back online though (except the phone). The search will just be a bit slow for the next few hours and the results will not be up to date for the next hour or so. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Jul 1st 2016
I just finished installing some new GrabIt Search servers with more memory and more speed. The GrabIt Search retention is almost 2700 days now (yes, that is 7.5 years) and I need the extra hardware to keep the search fast. Everything seems to be working great on the new servers, but I will keep monitoring this weekend. If you see something that is not working, please drop me a line using the Support button on the left. Happy grabbing!

There is a problem with the pay by phone system. So for now the phone payments are not available. We are working on it.

Feb 4th 2016
2015 was a hectic year. I became father of twin baby girls and spent a lot of time being at home enjoying my family. But I started to work some more on this project every week since January. Next week I'll ramp up GrabIt 2.0 development again. So beta testers stay tuned!

In the mean time I did some upgrades to the GrabIt search and added a lot more groups to the index. They should become available within the next day or two. If you are missing a group that you would like added to the GrabIt Search, just let me know by using the support button on the left.

Happy grabbing!
