the next big thing in file sharing

in my most splended mightiness of mighty I have introduced you all to soulseek, audiogalaxy and morpheus when they were just starting out, and I feel it is my duty as royal dicknose of dickery [title given to me affectionately by Slipperypete] to tell you now about Direct Connect

Morpheus and the network it runs off apparently went tits up earlier this week. Most importantly it's network is centralized, meaning it can be shutdown.

Direct Connect has been receiving a lot of accolades from geek circles for a while but I could never get the client to run properly. Until now - evidently there is an open source version of the program that is even better than the one the original creators made, called Direct Connect +. It's an optimized client that has a much cleaner interface and seems to run better too.

In short, this thing rocks. It's not as simple an interface as audiogalaxy but in turn you have access to much more than just MP3's - you can share any type of file you want. It is truly a decentralized network, running off "hubs" which are started by users, so there isn't a real easy way for things to be shut down. Basically you connect to a hub, and on the hub there are users whos files you have access to. You can connect to multiple hubs at once. Hubs can be privatized as well.

Heads up - check it out, this has a lot of promise.

Yeah. Kazaa is a different owner or something.. based in Holland I believe.. Morpheus was American I think.. same software.. just on different networks.. they both shared resources though with each other.

morpheus and kazaa were the same program with different interfaces.

morpheus was down for a few days cuz they were creating a new version. The reasons are on cnet.download.com.

I've been using iMesh for a while now. Seen John Q, Harry Potter, Mothman Prophecies, pure live sets and oldschool tunes. easy to use.


WinMX, grokster... I found I didn't enjoy either of the two.

cough

audiogalaxy has been around since before tribe as an ftp search client

the satellite is just an extension of the ftp search, as it creates an ftp-like server on everyone's computer, and the interface just happens to be a web one

direct connect is a few years old and sucks badly because of lame people and such

it's good for porn though

i wish gnutella would catch on

well i already have this postmod

but i want something with a morpheus or napster like search function, since audiop galaxy always gives me results with red x's.

im happy with soulseek and audiogalaxy and the tbkftp and mIRC but aside from the latin channel on irc what good does that do for my dad's musical tastes?

i coulldnt find micheal murphy's wild fire anywhere and audio galaxy just produced red x's for it.
