File-sharing apps

    What are people using these days for file-sharing apps? I'm mostly looking for software I guess... but some music too. I have soulseek which is alright for music but poor for everything else.

    I just installed DC++ a few days ago but don't like it so far. For one, I don't yet have 30+GB to share and thus to get onto the good hubs with. Furthermore, I can't seem to download the remainder of incomplete files if a connection gets dropped. Is there any way to do this? When I try to search for the file again, it starts a new download, so the 400+MB incomplete file that I've spent hours waiting for is useless. And is there any way to download the same file from multiple sources like in Kazaa?

    I've downloaded bit torrent before but can't for the life of me figure out how to get it properly working.

    And there's no way that I'm putting Kazaa on my PC again. Too much spyware crap to deal with.

    E-Donkey2000 is pretty good for software. If you can find a good bit-torrent then that's the way to go otherwise E-Donkey suits me well.

    Yeah, I'd recommend Kazaa-Lite. It's Kazaa, with all the spyware and popups stripped out.

    E-Mule (a derivative of E-Donkey) is better IMO.

    And if you use either, use sharereactor.com as your "yellow pages" for finding apps.

    i've been using bittorrent for the last little while, its actually a really good program, but only if you have high speed(i guess like everything)

    head on over to www.sharingthegroove.com and go to the message board for a fairly good tutorial on how to use it.

    i installed it and figured out how to use it in a half hour from the info on the site. You are downloading and uploading at the same time with a whole bunch of different people. The more people with open windows, the faster the download. and it uses .shn files which apparently are better quality than MP3(although waaay bigger in size). I downloaded a 680 meg radiohead concert in about 1.5 hours.

    hope this helps!

    I'm still going to leave my money on newsbin.

    browsing for warez thru endless binaries groups may be gritty.. but once you get comfortable with it.... you'd never go back to downloading at 40k/s

    even rogers cable users should get about 1-2mbits/s

    (just over 1000k/s) wheee!

    I downloaded two 700 meg iso's the other day in less than twenty mins. (btw... terminator 3 sukked. hehe)
