I think Bit Torrent worth a try because you can get what is just out (movies, games and tv shows the day they are released or aired). Here how it work: Bit Torrent has been invented by a computer programmer (Brahm Cohen) who was tired of uploading his new programs to his customers because uploading is slow. So, he had the idea to use the upload of his customers to send the informations they already have to the next customer (smart, indeed).
So, basically, you use a file named torrent (usually found on various websites or on irc) that contains various informations such as the address of the "tracker". the "tracker" is on a server, exist more or less a month, and its function is to connect you to other users to start sharing the file. There are 2 kind of users you'll be connected to: "seeds"=users that has downloaded 100% and now just upload it to other users, and "leechers"=users that has just some parts and share them with you if you don't have them yet.
The more seeds they are, the faster you'll download, so don't hesitate to wait for popular torrents to have lots of them (usually a few hours or a day later, depending on the size), the number of seeds and leechers is usually indicated near the name of the torrent on many websites.
The main advantage for me is that contrary to eMule (or else p2p), there's a list of new torrents every day which allow you to discover lots of nice stuff you've probably never heard before!! Although, it is probably safer because it lasts less time and you don't share lots of files but only one (the main legal problem is when you make a file available to others). And of course, it's really FAST with popular torrents, a lot faster than eMule.
I don't know if I can give you links to good websites that host the torrents on the forum
but if those interested pm me, I'll be happy to give it. Grinler
: ABC is an improved version of Bittornado which is an improved version of Bit Torrent by Brahm Cohen! It's a really good program, I use it often too!! And for the upload, believe me, I never set it above 5kb/s and I usually download above 100kb/s (my record is 280kb/s).Bluie
: I hope it's clearer, sorry, I know I'm usually not expressing myself clearly at all!!! Don't worry, it's really easy to use! You just have to install a client (ABC or Bittornado), then download the torrents you want and just double-click on the torrent file and it will start your client which should start to download within minutes. Don't forget to set your upload limit to have a good download rate.
The forum I gave would of course display informations a lot clearer and more accurate that I could ever write!! But remember that you have to post 3 posts in order to access the full forum.
I hope it can help someone! I have other tips and interesting things to know, if you are interested don't hesitate to ask!!
