Q: I'm new to usenet! How do I access TITANnews.com's Newsgroups? What is the first step?

*
1) The first step is to download a news-reader client like Ozum, Hogwasher, Forte Agent, YA-NewsWatcher, or Outlook (or any news-reader that allows you to have multiple news-server configured at the same time and uses the NNTP protocol. Usually your system comes with one of the above installed).

We, as always, for news-readers recommend the FULL VERSION of Ozum for Windows, or Hogwasher for Macintosh. They are very easy to use, low-priced, and handle multiple news-server extremely well, and are simply the best news-readers there are for your OS. Ozum is available for all versions of Windows. Hogwasher is available for Macintosh 8.6, 9.x, and has a fabulous OS X version.

*
The next step is to decide which type of newsgroups you are primarily interested in.

*
If you only read text groups or if you are interested primarily in binaries newsgroups, our uncensored news-server news.titannews.com will work for you LUXURIOUSLY FAST.

If you enjoy mostly binaries newsgroups you should consider the INCREASED LUXURY of Ozum for Windows, or Hogwasher for Macintosh.

Configure your news-reader (one that supports multiple news-server) with our News-Server news.titannews.com and your username/password and preferences. This will enable you to easily browse the newsgroups and obtain exactly the article(s) you are looking for.

*
TIP: If one particular news-reader isn't performing quickly or as you like - it isn't our news-server - it's your news-reader, upgrade to the FULL VERSION of Ozum, our recommended news-reader of choice for Windows. The reason we praise Ozum is its maximized speed and ease of use while having every feature you'll ever desire. If you're not happy with your Macintosh news-reader, upgrade to Hogwasher - superb in speed and features.

Then Enter Your Username and Password.
Click "Save Password" and/or "Always Authenticate"
Choose "Wizard" in the "File" menu or click on the leftmost button on the toolbar.
TitanNews
The Ozum Wizard button on the toolbar
The first thing that the Wizard will ask you to do is to choose a name for a new project. A project is a working environment that remembers your news-server, subscribed newsgroups, filters, and other parameters that you set. You must have at least one project, but can have as many of them as you wish, with the option of saving each one in a location of your choice on your hard drives.

To work with the large diversity of info on the Usenet, you may find it convenient to group similar newsgroups together. You can do this using projects. For example, you can have a Music project, a Humour project, a Family project, a Work project, etc. If you are a dad, you might want to protect your kids or protect yourself from curious kids by creating a DadsOwn project and locking it with a password. Kids (nor anyone else) won’t be able to open such a project. Also, it is a good idea to lock Ozum so that a password is required to add a new newsgroup to a project. If this is done, no undesired newsgroup can be added to a project, and thus accessed, without this password.

At this point, it is also useful to understand what a job is in Ozum. Almost any set of actions that Ozum has to perform in order to get information from a News-Server, or post information to a News-Server, is framed as a job. Ozum creates jobs automatically when prompted by user actions. Some are performed automatically and deleted immediately after completion of the required task. An example of such a job is reading headers of new articles from a newsgroup. Other jobs are required to be started and deleted manually, for example, downloading selected articles or posting files. A third type of job, like scanning newsgroups, can be used multiple times or programmed for periodic automatic use.

Follow the Wizard prompts until you have connected to news.titannews.com and subscribed to a few newsgroups. You will have news.titannews.com shown in the bottom left corner area of the Ozum window. Click on the "+" next to our server name or double click our server name. It will open as a harddrive would open. Double click on any subscribed newsgroup. A list of available articles will be downloaded and shown.

Congratulations! You have started.
