There are some technical problems with our phone payment provider.
We are working on it, but it can take a while to fix.
Please choose another payment method or try again later.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Not everybody has access to a PayPal account, so we started a 'Pay by Phone' method in 2005. This has been very succesfull, so we started to make deals in different countries to make this possible. At the moment the countries below are supported.

The price per country can vary, but these are the best prices we where able to get from the phone operators. The price for an account is for 20 days of GrabIt Search access. The account will be closed automatically after 20 days, after which you can open a new account to continue the usage of the unlimited GrabIt Search.

Made some changes to the backend system to improve the speed of the Members Only page. It should now come up immediately, even for long time members with multiple years worth of statistics.

Fixed some small bugs and did some performance enhancements on GrabIt since the 1.7.4 release was a quick release to fix the GrabIt Search problems. The updated version is now available in the form of GrabIt 1.7.4 Beta 2. Happy grabbing!

Did a lot of work on the GrabIt Search in the last few weeks. It is now better at searching for partial words. The search also returns better results for complex searches and exact matches with special characters. If something doesn't behave as expected please let us now using the support. I'm behind answering questions but I'm going to spend a lot of time to get back to everybody in the next few days.

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.

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!
