How to Get to a Specific Date w/o Scrolling Forever?

The best way to find specific items using our service is to use the Advanced Search and not the Index Search as indexes are littered with spam these days. In the example below, we have set the group to alt.binaries.pictures.rail and set the date for today only:

https://members.easynews.com/2.0/index/advanced?st=adv&safeO=0&sb=1&gps=&sbj=&from=&ns=alt.binaries.pictures.rail%E2%80%8B&fil=&fex=&vc=&ac=&s1=otime&s1d=-&s2=nfrom&s2d=-&s3=dsize&s3d=%2B&spamf=1&u=1&sc=1&gx=1&pby=1000&pno=1&sS=3&d1=&d1t=6&d2=&d2t=&b1=&b1t=&b2=&b2t=&px1=&px1t=&px2=&px2t=&fps1=&fps1t=&fps2=&fps2t=&bps1=&bps1t=&bps2=&bps2t=&hz1=&hz1t=&hz2=&hz2t=&rn1=&rn1t=&rn2=&rn2t=&go=Search

And in the following example, we went one step further and searched for only image files in alt.binaries.pictures.rail that were posted on the 23rd and 24th of January, 2017:

https://members.easynews.com/2.0/index/advanced?st=adv&safeO=0&sb=1&gps=&sbj=&from=&ns=alt.binaries.pictures.rail&fil=&fex=&vc=&ac=&s1=otime&s1d=-&s2=nfrom&s2d=-&s3=dsize&s3d=%2B&fty%5B%5D=IMAGE&spamf=1&u=1&sc=1&gx=1&pby=1000&pno=1&sS=3&d1=2017-01-25&d1t=&d2=2017-01-23&d2t=&b1=&b1t=&b2=&b2t=&px1=&px1t=&px2=&px2t=&fps1=&fps1t=&fps2=&fps2t=&bps1=&bps1t=&bps2=&bps2t=&hz1=&hz1t=&hz2=&hz2t=&rn1=&rn1t=&rn2=&rn2t=&altgo=Search

In addition to fine-tuning your searches, you can also save any search you run for later use by clicking the green "Save this search" button at the top of the results.  This will then add that search to your Saved Searches area and you can run that specific search at any time by clicking the created link.

If you have any further questions in regards to our Advanced Search, or any other functions of our site, please feel free to send us an email here
