Default Graf - Encyclopedia of Electronic Circuits - File 01 of 14 - Graf - Encyclopedia of Electronic Circuits - Vol 1.pdf (01/68)

Just out of curiosity, why does the pdf contained in the attachment to this
message give me an error when I try to open it with Adobe Acrobat Reader
(8.0, I *think*)? File corrupted and could not be read, or some such. Am I
doing something wrong? I've got time on my hands, and was going to just
download the bunch one at a time.

Thanks,

Dave

PDF does not like a file chopped into little pieces

Well, you can download 'the bunch' one at a time but you can't
save/read them one at a time because they're 'parts' of a pdf file,
not a pdf file themselves.

The message you're replying to is "Graf - Encyclopedia of Electronic
Circuits - File 01 of 14 - Graf - Encyclopedia of Electronic Circuits
- Vol 1.pdf (01/68)." Note the ending (01/60). That means it's part 1
of a file that, all totaled, takes 60 parts to make up. Each 'part' is
a separate USENET message. (This rather cryptic methodology developed
because USENET was not originally intended for transmitting binary
files)

To get the *file* you have to download all parts and combine the parts
into one. Then you can save the reconstructed file.

Outlook Express is not a very good reader for doing binaries but it
can combine them nonetheless. Select all the parts then right click
(or from the menu -- MESSAGE) and choose "Combine and Decode." Make
sure all parts are in order in the window that pops up, then click
"OK."

Most, if not all, 3'rd party news readers will do that automatically
and if you would like to take advantage of USENET binaries I suggest
you get one, like Xnews or Gravity (both free) or a pay for reader.


Thanks,

Dave

Why thank you, Flipper. I thought there was an error in the uploading of
the different parts because one contained an attachment and the others
didn't. I'll try what you describe. Thanks again.

Dave

What news reader did you use to download them? Outlook can barely
handle email let alone a multipart large binary - if that's what you
do use . . .

I use(d) BNR3 and seldom have a problem. I downloaded them overnight
on dialup pulling from two news servers, and set them up to download
one volume at a time, first to last. He's got recovery files there
and the par 2 said that it didn't need repairs.

Actually, it can. It's just that you have to manually select the
messages and tell it to "combine and decode" them.

- if that's what you
do use . . .


Tip. If you look at his message header you can tell.

He was/is and that's why I was pretty sure he just didn't know about
the multi part "combine and decode" thing.

Yes, I saw he was using IE. binary readers combine and decode
automatically.

Xananews (free) works fine, you just have to tell it which parts to
decode and combine, after you have them downloaded. Grabit Newsreader
(also free) will identify and assemble them all by its own little self,
but it's a bit of a hassle using it directly so I grab the nzb from
http://www.binsearch.info/groups.php.

WOW! Thank you for that link. I had no idea such a place existed. I guess
everything's out there, if you know where to look.... Man. Much
appreciated.

BTW, I am guessing I can use Grabit on nzb files I get from there? Or am I
off on the wrong track again?

Thank you

Sure. All you need is an account in a binaries server. You can rustle
up some free ones in alt.free.newsservers, but they tend to be flaky
and have short retention. I subscribe to Forte's APN service, at 3
bucks/mo for 5 gigs it's worth it. After all the files there's still
enough credit for more pr0n than you can shake a mouse at.
