Any FastTrack based P2P app (Kazaa etc) is to be avoided; full of fakes, corrupted files, virii, 56k users etc. I hear eMule's good, but I couldn't get on with it.

DC or BitTorrent all the way!

Oh, and you people install FireFox while you're at it :p

i agree fully.  except if you are going to use bit torrent, stay away from suprnova...

Private trackers are much better for it.

Also, there are many good dc hubs to get many good things.

That's all I'm saying.

Patience. Connect to the server that has more users. Then wait. Add some shared files. Wait.

When you are new it can take a bit to hook the first download, but after some days it will begin much faster.

I see, you so it's kind of like a point-based system? More you upload/download, better privelages (and download priority) you get?

Most likely. When you try to download a file, you enter in other user's (who have the file) queues. People in the queues are sorted depending on some rating systems. For example, if you want to download a 700 Mb AVI file with the latest movie, you get more "points" if you are sharing 700 Mb AVI files with movies. Also, the more time you've been waiting on someone else's queue for a specific file gives you more "points" the next time you connect and enter a queue.

In just a week you'll realize how downloads start much faster, simply 'cause during the first week people will be downloading from you more than you will be downloading from people and that flow of data counts.
