Seriously, what is your problem.

I dunno why anyone is complaining about it anyways. BT will be faster and the likes of GS and FS will get it just as easily for the others who don't have the ability to access BT.

I swear, I think people complain just to pass the time...lol.

The only draw back (Like there is one), is that those who have access to BT will get it slightly faster. Those who can't access BT should see increased bandwidth on GS and FS since the others who can access BT will be there.

Win/Win I think... but lets just bitch about it instead.. huff!

Peace,

I am hoping that someone off campus will grab it quickly and throw it on the campus DC hub though (Nothing like 5-6MB/s transfers from across campus). If this doesn't happen though I will be penalized speed wise because of their decision. Guess I will just have to hope and pray that I can get my hands on it through alternative channels.


Thats the speed you get when your using a router or a firewall and have ports 6881-6991 blocked. That's also the case if whatever your downloading has been released a long time ago, and there's not much sources. BT is great for spreading files quickly.

You also get that when you are packetshaped. I agree that BT is great, but not everyone can use it. I think they aren't going to reach one of their target audiences because of this decision. A lot of colleges have either blocked the ports completely or packetshaped it to hell and I would imagine college students are right in the middle of one of the age ranges they are targetting.

For those of us in this situation their is nothing we can really do except hope that it pops up elsewhere or ask for people that aren't on campus to help. On my campus specifically the total bandwidth allotted for all P2P programs is 512kbit on a T3. When you add in the fact that other students are sharing that tiny little pipe too it becomes useless...which is the whole intent of packetshaping.

Heh. I remember those days. All was fixed when I moved out of the dorms. Heck, it was even cheaper. Besides, you realize you're just whining about an hour or two you're not going to be able to play? Come on.

Yes! Emoticons make Internet Message Boards workable!

Sorry, my day hadn't been going too well at that point.

It's amazing that they even keep a user base. I go to www.3dgamers.com to get the filenames for something I'm looking for, and then just hop over to www.filemirrors.com and get it elsewhere.

Basically, anyone that knows this would avoid Fileplanet entirely.

I dunno, I really like Bit Torrents myself. When something new comes out that's big I always seem to get great download speeds off it using Shareaza.

I've got downloads that have taken me weeks too hunting down some obscure older TV shows and such, but the new stuff usually goes quick like a bunny for me.

Actually I still use fileplanet simply because it works for what I need it for. The waiting lines are annoying, but once I get the link all I have to do is copy it into Getright and I never have to worry about it again. And I've had some bad experiences with some other sites, for some reason some webmasters think it's cool to disable download resuming, which really sucks on a 56k with a file that's...well...ANY size, really.

Yeah that is usually what I do also but 3dgamers is now getting hit hard also because they link to filefront and every one is going there now. I guess we will just have to learn more patients. LOL it is funny when you think about it. We had to be patient when DLing with 56k then when DSL came out we were all happy for a while. Now because of file sizes and the amount of people using broadband now. LOL we are back at 56k patients. Talk about running to stand still.

Except for me, I've got the worst of both worlds at 56k speed AND large file sizes
Man, downloading a demo in only a few hours...it must be heaven...
