    Hi Guys

    Just thought i would post a little message about how crap kazaa is turning into. The majority of new material these days cannot be sourced on kazaa. I am sure everyone has come across the dreaded ''NEED MORE SOURCES'' at sometime or other. Am i the only one it annoys. Kazaa is gonna need a dramtic turn around or it will be left behind like napster and other.

    bittorent and irc seem the only way forward for file sharing these days

    just my opinion i am sure some of you will disagree

    cheers

    andy

    It's sh1t Andy let's not kid ourselves, it had it's day, it's just those 4 million users of Kazaa have yet to realise this.

    Now I use a mixture of irc, BT, soulseek and emule..although I havn't been on soulseek latley, but it's always nice to have an alternative. Yes I know emule is slow, (or just plain unworkable for some folk) but reliable..at least for me!

    Kazaa does serve a purpose, it's 'usually' the first P2P app that most people who are novices to all this P2P malarky try, and due to it's popularity, it's now snowballing, hence the massive user base...

    It was cos I was trying to get CD images from kazaa (back in the day) before I realised what a complete load of pants it really was, it's mincing error correction is only good for MP3's and movies, and even then it's a bit suspect.

    Trying to download .BIN files was near impossible or takes 5 times as long as I had to keep downloading the same file again and again...till I get one thats relativley error free. Well screw that!

    I think BT or some similar app is the future of filesharing, although BT sites seem to get hammered (dos attacks) very frequently, as the RIAA and their band of gypos start using underhand tactics, to knock sites like suprnova off line.

    Anyway, I digress...just to say I was in complete agreement with you, as I'm sure there are a few members of this board who no longer use Kazaa at all.

    Peace

    Kazaa Lite had its day, and now its slowly dying. I am in a raging argument with several people over on the file sharing board who'd love to have my head for saying so, but the simple fact is that Fast Track from the beginning didn't work too well, and now that the RIAA is scaring off users, the death knell is approaching.

    well the RIAA is going to sue "thousands" of users

    so i'm getting familiar w/ es5.

    of course kazaa is going to tank, all great things do.

    (well it wasn't so great, but the idea was there)

    Agreed. IRC is for old school traders. Its not even a filesharing program, just a community of chatters who share files.

    I certainly hope Kazaa-lite doesn't tank. For my computer, it's the fastest file-sharing program I have. Even bittorrent is slow as dirt on my machine. Too bad RIAA is running everyone off.

    You should try the original method of filesharing --> Newsgroups

    I get a CONSTANT 74Kbs (Max speed) for the duration of the download.
