man, now that i got bittorrent working good.. i'm starting to like it more than emule and irc for games.
Here's the way i think of the software/info search"IN Line-Up (sorted by popularity.. kinda):
Kazaa= Good for mp3Z, videoZ, small softwareZ under 100mb, DocumentZ, uhh and whole lot of other cool/weird/how-To/poRn/top-secret stuff..
Bittorrent= Good for Games/Software ISOs, BINS, Movies, etc (hell it's faster)
IRC= You can get lucky with normal and rare stuff at high speeds in IRC-Ork
Google= Find anything about anything (dont forget the image search... lmao)
Astalavista= Master of all crack/serial search engines (not altavista.. mistaken by newbs)
Filemirrors.com= Kinda cool, find a bunch of mirrors of files.. comes in handy
Emule= You can find REALLY rare stuff like Macintosh software on it
Hotline= Mainly macintosh software, hard as hell to use.. similare to public ftps.
FTP= Dunno, public ftps are crap, but Ftp is good for like sending a file to a specific person with privacy.
Online HD= 95% of em are DEAD LiNkEd
Direct Connect= They say it's huge, but i could download @#$%* on it! not a single file!.. also they like rate people by how much file size they share.. some people cheat and it says they shareing like 900 TB.., but it says DSL or Cable Internet used! LOL
-- do ya know of anything else?
