    I'm curious if anyone else has thought of this.

    Today I was downloading a SeaLab episode and
    I was getting it from 4 people for a total of 58.3 K
    or so. But occasionally a few other users would
    pop up and it would show an attempt to get 22kb
    or some small part of the episode from them.

    Now sometimes I can see the progress bar
    show up for a micro second and then that user
    is gone before I have the chance to right click
    on them. But sometimes I can't see the
    progress bar at all and the user name disapears
    about as quickly as it showed up. So I was
    curious if a T1 or T3 connection would share
    a tiny part of the file too quickly for my computer
    to show it on screen.

    So I have DSL, so perhaps 56k or 14.4K users
    might not see my user name at all as I would
    send them 22kb very quickly. On second thought
    maybe this has to do with my slow video card ?
    I was told my Intel video card is not that great
    and a few years old. Do people with better video
    cards show more users ?

    Anyway, just curious what other people thought.

    ciao,

    Isn't this topic better in "Questions" Section?

    But to answer: maybe the user went offline. Or Kazaa Lite K++ organize your download in a way that this user is not needed at the moment for this file.

    >>>maybe the user went offline.>>>

    It could be that, if the user were only to appear once. However, 9 times out of 10, the users pop up quite a lot with little tiny snippets of the file.

    How does K++ or "organize" a download ?

    The user probably is offline, but KL++ re-attempts that source in the hopes the user is back online. It fails quickly perhaps BECAUSE you have a fast connection and has nothing to do with how fast the other end is... unless the other end is crashing alot.
