i have gone from using audiogalaxy (a looong time ago, but it was still BY FAR the best program i have used) to blubster (it was crap and always froze my computer) to kazaa (too much spyware and viruses) to kazaa lite k++ (was cool and worked well, until the fake songs started getting put in) to soulseek now (it's okay, and really good for finding less mainstream type stuff imo).

Shareaza is good, no fake songs at alol, lots of material out there. Finally got a divx rip of popmart mexico for my computer. If you use a router though, you must open up some ports(it says in the faq) for it to truly work well.

Hi Neutral:

Where / How do you find these newsgroups? Thanks.

Here's what you've gotta do: browse people's lists. Whenever you find someone with something cool who miraculously doesn't have a queue out to heaven, see what else he has. Check the people who are downloading from you too (if they aren't sharing anything, ban them, since leeches are the reason the network is starting to suck); most people give extra slots for people they're getting stuff from.

So anyway, once you've got a decently sized userlist, you can hop on whenever you're bored and just browse some people's lists. Not great if you're looking for one specific thing, but cool if you're just looking for interesting stuff in general. The search function is decentralized and weird, so it doesn't find everything, so a lot of people on your list will have no queues.

Check with your ISP - Sometimes, your ISP provides downloading from the newsgroups for free.....

I don't have a tutorial here @ work, but if you PM me, I will look at home.

I want to cry when I think about how good audiogalaxy was....Soulseek and a handful of bit torrent sites are okay, but I'm finding it increasingly hard to find anything I'm actually looking for.
