It's 2 years since I used eMule. I now just use newsgroups.
A couple of days ago I installed Neo mule as I used it before. Going to grab a few TB of old stuff to save it before it dies out for good (the files and not the network).
As I have a neighbour that is a total idiot, and is using my parking lot when he wants, I just use his wireless router/internett acces for the mule.
He has 8Mbps/1Mbps.
Now to the interesting part:
When I used eMule before I had MAX 100 KB/s in average speed during 24 hours use, even though the mule was on 24/7. And believe me, I tried every client out there with different settings to get it faster, NO GO!
Now the mule has an average of 250KB/s. Of course there is some files that is faster than others, depending on the sources. I have been up to 624KB/s as max.
Is it just because more and more people are getting ADSL/CABLE/FIBRE etc. or have my previous years just been a total disaster?
