Thread: Do you use a dedicated computer just for downloading?

  1. #1

    Question Mark

    I've been thinking of setting up a comptuer just for downloads, because it sometimes ties me up. Sometimes I'll leave it on while sleeping but sometimes it makes too much noise.

    i do use one, an old Duron 1300+ overclocked, with integrated vga and custom made cpu cooler to be silent and don't ruin my sleep. 4 harddisks plus and IDE controller for further 2 that are coming.
    I control it with RDC and it runs on windows 2k3, cuz it is the lightest windows-based OS i could install and run all i need.

    this way i have all allocated resources to play on my main computer and seed 24/7.

    Nope. Though I do have a separate 500GB drive dedicated to file sharing.

    Been tempted to build a server, and use it for storage, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

    i am also tempted to use a machine just for filesharing since i have a amd 3500+ machine lying around unused. only need a Hard-disk. and since i can use file sharing only at night hours, the noise from computer disturbs my sleep

    Hi people !!!

    I didn't buy new PC but I'll be soon. Till that I'm using this one for seeding. He paused 2x times in last 70-75 days for 5 minutes (electric energy went down ). Sure that I'll make that combination when I get new.

    Regards !!!

    I just tried using an old 500mhz machine with 256mb ram and it was too slow to deal with PAR files :p.

    Its ok for P2P though.

    Its running win2000 with hardly anything installed.
