    kazaa isnt cutting it anymore, i need more of a selection. anybody know about any popular file sharing programs?


    simply to download "backups" of files i have purchased. sad but true.

    well i fink my isp = throttled kazaa. so i use emule

    if you want quality of files go with emule but its a slow process dont think youll get files at max speed you just gotta wait i suggest you have broadband and leave it on all the time of the download. but theres no Bull**** with them and alot of worthwhile files are ORGANISED and INDEXED on http://www.sharereactor.com check it out

    when something gets popular like kazaa all the *******s that TK on CS and stuff think they are the funniest ****s going by putting duff files on their... but their just simpletons... and i ignore them

    i download "backups" too dubstar but i can never find the "originals":rolleyes:

    i went with e-mule, but oh man, it doesnt seem like its working right.. its telling me 317/318 Sources for a file, but its "waiting".. and then sometimes it starts downloading, but at 1kb a second.

    "Remaining: 4days 4 hours" is this right?!?!:confused:

    my lowest "QR" is 19, and my highest 5764.. and then it just goes blank

    my favourite P2P app is

    NeoModus®' Direct Connect™

    you have to share files to get into the hub > so there's no leechers
    specific hubs catering for all kinds of intrests
    fast connection hubs > no slow downloads
    every hub is moderated > no dodgy files
    resume supported

    :cool:

    im an old user of Direct Connect and i cant stand to use the prog any more it has gotten way out of hand with the min shares in some of the hubs and all the slots you need open i only have 128k up and 3 slots open will kill me to the point where i cant even surf the net so now i use emule and man let me tell you i can find any thing i want on there its alot better then Direct Connect

    i just turn it off when i finish downloading a file. e-mule takes forever! but if you turn off the program when your using the comp, and turn it on when you goto sleep.. you probably wouldnt mind as much.

    yeh dubstar like i said it takes ages to do somin

    but you just gotta leave it on and youll work your way up the queue till you get a slot

    and emule is big on uploads (thats what makes it work) it has a rating system and the higher rating the quicker you get through the queue

    I've used KaZaAlite +++ for quite awhile. The problem is it sucks for quality of file. You can get fairly consistent download speeds. I've been using emule for awhile and get quality files that actually will redownload corrupted files. The problem with Emule is its slower then _hit!!.. I'd like to use KaZaAlite more but its rare you get the real deal and most of the verified links now are dead..
