I've been using Newsgroups for a while and I've just noticed that when you download a newsgroup for the first time it takes a while to download but when you go back to the same file later it downloads instantaneously, why is this ? I suspect it may be because when you open a newsgroup it plants a file in some sort of temp folder on your PC...is this correct ? if so, which folder ? I have been to thousands of newsgroups and would hate to think that there were thousands of small files stored on my hard-drive taking up valuble space..please explain.
