Re: WEB SITES

Surprised you put in Kazaa.com Mick, THAT peer to peer site comes complete with a package that is FULL of spyware which is the reason Kazaa lite is so popular. It has nothing to do with Kazaa except that it fights the concept of spyware packaging!

Personally, I prefer Win mx which in my opinion is superb as a peer to peer site. The main danger of all peer to peer sites is the possibility of d/loading virus problems,

Before d/loading, check out the bytes, A single should be between 2 - 12,000,000 bytes and an album 40 - 70.000.000 bytes. Programs are considerably lower, but watch out for "100 / 100 available" or the user having the word "Girl" in the title!

These files tend to have very small bytes but are easy to "click on" Also, the file title includes words that cover a whole array of musical tastes "Bowie, Beatles, Small faces, Sex, Beastiality..." You get the picture?? Put in a search..and you will come across these!

Using common sense, you can d/load any amount of files, music and video's,....but be aware!!

Re: WEB SITES

if u want to download top goodies then bit torrent is the client to be using . search for it on google its hard to miss. many sites are offering it now as the primary download source. Esp where open source technology is concerned you will find links for torrent downloads for most ISO linux distributions these days.

honestly a bit rubbish think it uses the same files and peers as fileshare and edonkey,gronkyer or whatever its called there didnt seem much choice on it and it took to long to connect to the peers as much as kazaalite is bad for spyware if you run the microsoft spyware it sorts it and its the best for music singles

Re: WEB SITES

suprnova was shut down a while ago as were most of the major bittorrent sites. The developers are working on a hybrid which would use a gnutella(Kazza, bearshare, winmx) network to share the .torrents before switching to Bittorrent for the download.

There are some mirror sites left over from suprnova, i occasionally use Bi-torrent.

As has been said, make sure you know what you can expect when using any P2P. That is one of teh other beauties of using Linux, no spyware/viruses so I can download to my hearts content. at worst its wasted download time as non of teh nasties work under linux.

Re: WEB SITES

I have tried a few P2P - Napster (before it was shut down), kazaa, grokster, i-mesh, but they are all full of spyware. Don't know about Napster now that you have to pay for it.

I use winmx now as it seems to be spyware free, but if there are any better sites around I will have a look.

I saw something on Working Lunch last week about bit torrents - is this much faster than the usual P2P?

Re: WEB SITES

It can be, It is different. It tends to be faster for newly released stuff, but older archive stuff is harder to find. I can explain how it works if you can't be bothered to google.
