When I first got access to the 'net (end of 1980's) Newsgroups were already established, the main source of my collections. So I cannot answer questions related to BBS, sorry. I only have an idea what is it was about, a kind of predecessor, but that's all.

hello! I just stumbled across this and was remembering the good old days of image collecting. I often wondered what ever happened to Hunter. It seems its long since gone.

Are the suze collection newsgroups still active and is this still a valid 'hobby'?
Anyone have a link to hunter or any recommendations on anything more updated?

thx!

Hunter still functions perfectly well if you use the workaround. You can download Hunter here: https://www.broquard-ebooks.com/hunt...ction-manager/

The suze newsgroups are long since defunct and full of spam. Whether this is a valid hobby is a matter of opinion!

Not sure about the Suze groups, but a.b.pic.nude is still very active, with CSVs and attention to detail for the collector/completist. Best for softcore photosets.

Is renaming movie files really such a niche thing that there's no easy-to-use tool for that?

I had a look at those CSV tools and they're way too overcomplicating things. Go through a folder with files, calculate their checksum, compare them to the ones in a list and spit out the according, correct movie title with year and publisher. Is it so hard to code something as simple as that? No it's not, it's just that no one wants to code a program that's easy to use. I managed to code a renamer as a shell batch file, but it's too slow to be released for the public and I don't have patience to learn new programming languages.

I have a suspicion that what's going on there is a kind of "security by obscurity". Various anti-piracy organizations got wind of Usenet long ago, and started going after newsgroups hosting content.

De-indentifying the file makes it harder to issue a takedown notice.

As you say, the coding problem of making a table of checksums, comparing it to a list equating checksums to names, and renaming the files shouldn't be hard, but presumably it was first done long ago, was "good enough" and never got improved -- there are a lot of tools like that.
