    Well, queues are the name of the game. I'd rather wait in que for a day, then wait a week or more for a copy to hit Kazaa. Files are rarely corrupt in my opinion, but it does happen. Start asking around in the IRC chatrooms for good warez servers and rooms. IrcSpy, packetnews and others have helped make IRC easier to use and navigate. However, most of the servers listed are in constant que due to everyone trying to get in. As with all filesharing, keep trying and you'll eventually get to the source of the rip. B)

    jibbler ur totally correct mate, and if the queues worked properly i would be happy to wait, but mine go back like position 1 out of 1, and stay that way, or even go backwards in the queue, and never get to the download, or it says no such nick/channel half the time

    Yes, this is a problem. Serving scripts are getting better. Sometimes a bot will be serving a file, like Matrix 2, and it will sometimes "timeout" and leave the room. A minute or two later, it comes back online, but the 20 or so people in que will have to re-request the file. Some scripts are more advanced, and they will restore the entire que, so you don't lose your place.

    Keep in mind something else. You talked about being in que, and sometimes even going backwards. This does happen in some channels, as some servers will push your que to the end if you aren't serving files in that channel. But if you are serving files in their channel, they will give you "priority queues" and you get moved up. Its like thier way of dealing with leechers.

    Truly IRC is a great community, chat first, filesharing second. B)

    Without hackers, we'd never get warez. Someone has to figure out the encryption systems and rip this stuff.
