Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

Hmmm...do you run regular anti-virus and spyware checks? Have you defragmented your hard drive recently?

Oh, and foobar2000 is a much better media player than Winamp as far as traders are concerned (and it's got a small footprint). It ain't pretty, but it's pretty powerful.

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

I've been looking at Foobar, really considering it. I need to learn more about php scripting, but I believe it should be my next step.
As far as antiviirus and defrag, I do, regularly, but I also don't see why it should be an issue on a comp that I just completely rebuilt from the ground up. The only things still extant from the old system are drives, and they c and d drives were both scoured before I did a clean install of a full version of xp home followed immediately by an upgrade to xp pro. (I have in the last few weeks realized that what I really need to do is learn and utilize some form of Linux distro, but for now, I need something that recognizes both my soundcard and my media drive at the same time, without a deep approri knowledge of bash) blah blah blah

please help me make microsoft not suck

Well, foobar does use less system resources than Winamp.

That being said, maybe you need to switch to another BT client for now. I've heard µTorrent is pretty neat--I haven't ever used it, but that was because it came out after I switched to Linux.


P.S. If you want to make the switch, I recommend either Ubuntu (easiest install ever--I'm currently using this distro because SuSE removed support for my wireless chipset) or SuSE (bit more involved install, but nothing too tough--they just give you more install options).

µTorrent, foobar2000, Ubuntu

I still use a hot-rodded winamp 2.81 (base program available at winampheaven.net) but that's a personal thing, not a recommendation.

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

I finally got a faster DSL connection, so I hope to raise my 0.83 ratio very soon

FWIW, I know this place is more than a bt site, but after a certain amount downloaded, I think something should be enforced.....I think most people will agree that the slackers on sharing the DVD torrents kill it for everyone

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

I'm new to this though having been a member since october. I unfortunately dont have any thing to give back to the site as in regards to music or videos, I do try however to give back by seeding what i had recently downloaded though my comp is firewalled. Any help would be nice.

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

for the u/l challenged, you know you can always "give back" to the community in other ways--vines, loops, B&Ps, freebies, .....................

no need to just throw up yer hands and say oh well...just find another way to share
