for hours? probably because the person downloading from that one person has a terribly slow connection and is attempting to download a file ment for high speed connections (ie; videos, dj sets, divx, etc)
With a little patience, you should be able to find what you are looking for.
See, the problem with WinMX is that you can set how many concurrent downloads/uploads that are going on at one time. Because it is all humans, and many humans are assholes, many will set their downloads at like 6 and their uploads to one. If you share a bunch of stuff, then people will be getting off you; then you right-click them and browse their shared. If they are assholes and move everything out of their shared directory, revealing amount of shared files = 0, cut em off. Though the search feature works well, too.
Most things I queue up for I eventually get; just queue em before you go to bed. And though there are a lot of busy signals, there's a lot of stuff on there too. And, no Spyware, the only program it crashes is itself (unlike Morpheus) and it'll resume your file, even if its from a different user than the incomplete one.
I swear I've gotten 20 Gb's in the last 5 months. Latest acquisitions:
Infected Mushroom - Live @ the Dark Forest, Amsterdam
John Kelley - funkydesertbreaks
LTJ Bukem - Breezeblock Mix
Chris Liberator - Live @ Bardo
Jori Hulkonnen - Essential Mix
H-Foundation - Essential Mix
like 5 Tunnel Trance Forces
3 Distance to Goa's (3,4,5)
and a wack of classic rock, including the complete Beatles White album, Zeppelin In Through the Out Door, and ChangesBowie.
And that's only in the last week or two!
A little patience will pay off.
Shit I sound like a WinMX commercial, but I've got this thing about badly made software that fucks up your computer.
