RE: WinMX (by JoeKuboj Sep 23 2005 in Non Aviation)

Although the WinMX network is currently down, this may only be temporary as developers seem to have relocated from Canada to Port Villa, Vanuatu.

It's not a bug, it's a feature.

WinMX is a cesspool of computer virii (at least in my experience.) I've been using iMesh lately and it works perfectly.

I gave up using it as it was flooded with spam for porn paysites. Small jpeg or gif files with the address of a titty page, spammed using thousands of keywords for popular searches.

That happens on any P2p Network. BearShare, my personal favorite, using the large Gnutella network is similar. Ignore WMV files and suspicious small (multiple of the sametime) JPG/GIF files

BearShare installs the Save! program but you can uninstall it and BearShare will work



What now?

I just called a friend, he recommended Soulseek:

I just installed it and it is looking quite nice.

Edit: I just downloaded a song, simply the perfect WinMX replacement!

I use Limewire, and I am nothing but pleased. Some quality porn on there as well, for those who are interested.  Wink

So, are eDonkey and eMule the same thing? I have eDonkey right now but nothing seems to start loading. Everything ends up in queue and I usualy end up being #3456 in line. Frustrating. I will give Soulseek a try.

GO CANUCKS!!

Shareaza is fairly efficient, but viruses abound. You can often find some pretty obscure music on the site.

Your best bet would be BitComet.
