For BitTorrent users only.

BrF> It seems like you were the only taker here though.

I was a taker. But my connection could only be IPv4. The max
rate at any one time was about 130kbps, but the rate was jumping
all over the place while your system was the sole feed. The
roughly 230MB file took a little over an hour to get. The max
my connection is capable of achieving is about 650kbps.

BrF> I guess the MAFIAA has managed to scare people away from
BrF> the superior bittorrent world. Why download from 30-40
BrF> servers simultaneously when you can all download from one
BrF> single server, right?

Torrent tech is amazing.

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
