Default Winmx

Is it just me or when there is a new version of winmx released you cant connect to the servers until you have that new version? Its slightly annoying to say the least

Yes! That always happens. You must always use the latest version otherwise you won't be able to connect :/

Personally I'm a fan of newnet.

Winmx is excellent for mp3's though. The majority of what I want encoded at 320kbps and if there's no really high bitrate version there's always a semi decent one in the 192+ range.

Cool ahh irc...

real time chatting and a great place for information...

of all sorts

if i never got into irc, i probably would never have found out about 3dgpu.com which had a link to nvnews.net. and ive been here ever since...

in fact ever since i clicked on nvnews.net link from 3dgpu.com and read a few lines (the title bar which said something like ...a great place for nVidia news...), i made it my homepage back in november/december 2000. i didnt join the forums until early jan 2001 because i was still hooked on irc.

now i just real time chat every once in a while but i will definitely not forget irc


u can learn a lot of things at irc...


if not for irc, i would have never gotten into linux or unix based systems.

if not for irc, i would never have bought the music cd's i have in my collection now

if not for irc, i would never have bought the pc games that i am glad to own.

if not for irc, i would never have found out so much about 3d and digital video: it's industries, it's hardware, it's softwares, and especially it's awesome online community filled to overflowing with creativity and imagination and innovation

if not for irc, i would have had a hard time repairing, updating, and configuring my pc on my own instead of having to depend on others or worse yet pay others for resolving simple and not-so-simple or some complex pc problems.

and i could go on and on...


well if not for irc, i probably would have eventually found out about nvnews.net and everything else i mentioned above and then some but im sure i wouldnt have since i know my interests would have changed by then

Which ones the mp3's at 320? (I don't have a single mp3 encoded at 320kbps that's joint stereo) or the lower bitrate ones?

I do agree that joint stereo is crap.
