    I hate that software! Actually, I hate all of them... but I admit they sometimes come in handy. :D

    Well, good for you then! Not everyone has access to those, you know! Or are you willing to share some IP's with us? Thought so. :rolleyes:
  6. I still say the best place for that stuff is Usenet. Just like being in a candy store :D

    I do pay $12 a month for a premium news provider (I use Giganews) but it's well worth it.
  7. yeah. alt.binaries.* is nice :)
  8. well doh.. ofcourse not.. and why ?

    1) it's not my ftp server, so it's not up to me decide who does and doesn't get access ;)
    2) I know some members here have a negative opinion on warez and mp3's.To prevent them from betraying me, by reporting the FTP to the BSA or the RIAA, i will not publish detailed info.. sounds logical eh ? ;)
    3) i'm an ***hole.. ( and darn proud of it :p )
    4) bandwidth ? helloo ??

    I absolutely love WinMX, mainly because it is so similar to the Napster that I was used to. A friend of mine swears by Morpheus, but there have been a lot of songs that I couldn't find on Morpheus, that I was able to find on WinMX.

    FWIW, I download songs all the time and will continue to do so, until record companies and artists put more than one or two decent tunes on their releases! ;) Also, file-sharing progs are a godsend to those of us with cover bands (or those of us that used to be in a cover band)!

    I downloaded and installed the 3.1, but uninstalled it and went back to the previous version. I dont like the new format of it.

    You might tell your friend Morpheus (and Kazaa) completly screws over your computer!

    It has a nasty habit of using 100% of my CPU sometimes, for up to a minute. Very bad.

    Someone, PM me and tell me more of these FTPs...Wherever I go, it seems like warz are just big link-a-thons, with no actualy D/ling happening...

    I didn't like it at first either, but the new version has multi-point downloading! I might have missed that the first time around, but I think it's a pretty nifty feature.

    Kazaa/Morpheus has spyware in it. If you don't want some multimillionaire company to know that some guy in the states is downloading porn, don't use it.
  18. I use AudioGalaxy alot, it has spyware to but I don't care, let 'em look!

    Make sure that you are connected. If you aren't, WinMX doesn't tell you that you're not hooked up, it will just let you wait and wait and wait...

    Also, if you're searching for something NOBODY would have, it's likely that, well, nobody has it. Also make sure you're looking for the right file type, i.e., Audio, Video, Pic.
