Default A Note on Downloading

Fileplanet sucks. Not only do you have to register, you have to pay if you want any decent speed, and they have those retarded waiting lines. Go to www.gamershell.com they have no sign up, their servers are fast and they have all the new demos and mods and everything. I was downloading 2megs/second the other day from them.

File Planet kicks ass if your a member. I get between 400-600K down from there with no lines at all (immediate download). Of course my "Founders Club Account" was given to me by someone who works at GameSpy....heh..

Yeah a friend of mine gave me his Fileplanet account like 2 years ago. I don't even know who's paying for it. Not that I care, I changed the passwords and username and stuff. Got my WoW beta as well. Hah! Let's see Gamershell compete with THAT!

It only sucks if you are too cheap to pay for decent DL speeds and exclusive content.
