    SavvyLady,

    Well how many post have you seen where they ask "can anyone help me" or something like that. But no one every says NO. I have been wanting to do that for years and you are the real lucky one to be picked as the first.:D

    Don't you feel good about it.;)

    Apparently the "NO" you gave me is the right answer to my question.

    Seems No is correct, as it looks like nobody has used it.

    Hi,

    It seems just like another Kazaa, Grokster clone - a peer to peer file sharing program.

    This page has lots of user comments:

    Direct Connect Comments

    I spend my life trying to block programs like this from gobbling up my network bandwidth, so I'm downloading it right now to see what's up with it! I'll let you know...

    Thats what I need was to hear it from someone that I could ask questions of. So when you get it I still want to hear what you have to say.

    SavvyLady,

    See you just have to wait sometimes.
    Your lucky because you have Rikku testing it out for you too. Rikku can test for spyware also. I know that Kazaa is spyware and we don't like it do we.:)

    Finally got the link to work this morning...

    This program is both completely scarey and cool.

    I would say initially its like a cross between Kazaa and Hotline.

    Its Kazaa except its organized. Basically you can form hubs (like the Boards on Hotline) except the Hubs are filled with users and users all list the contents of their hard drives.

    So you connect to a hub that shares files that you're interested in (like Dreamcast backups) and then you just swap freely. When you connect DC lists all the users and how many bytes of stuff they each have. You can choose to search the whole hub for a match or browse each user's stuff. The hub I connected to had a total of 8 Terrabytes of information shared. And that was just one of many many hubs.

    However ALL of the files available were mostly warez,divx, or porn. Definitely much more complicated since all the users think they're elite and most of the hubs are European. Grokster, Kazaa are so simple - you just plug in your file name and go. But having to connect to Hubs adds a whole different layer of complexity.

    Cool prog though, and its spyware free!

    :D

    Thanks so much for the info & for going to that extreme to find it out.
    Maybe its something you'll keep??
    Kazaa of course is full of spyware so I have Morpheus instead.
    ( same thing , different server )

    It doesn't seem worthwhile to me however as Im not looking for all that stuff.
    Maybe others viewing this will be though



    Thanks again,

    Savvy :)
