A post by imnotanaddict in another thread got me thinking about Sharman's claims that Kazaa 2.6 Supernodes won't allow users of older versions to download from the 2.6+ versions.
Could we not ideally do an experiment to answer this thing once and for all?
Post a new unique file on your shared drive - like a harmless text file with a harmless "blah blah" message on it or something.
Run as a Supernode in Kazaa 2.6. Do not run an older version.
Have someone somewhere else running K++ 2.4.3 do a search for that file (e-mail them the details of the file so Sharman can't botch the experiment).
Have that someone else try to download the file.
If they CAN download the file, would that not mean that what Sharman is saying is untrue? Is this not a scientific way of determining if Sharman is blowing smoke?
Could someone try this out?
