Usually I get a chance to enable registration to be able to download before this happens, but I havent exactly been available.

I hope we are able to purchase some overflow bandwidth for this month.
Ya, rly.

Hey Nerd, how come you haven't got any adverts on the download pages? That way each download can pay for itself.

A couple of questions:

1. Where will the other sources come from?
2. Will users have to download a BitTorrent client or could it be achieved transparently? If I had to install a BT client in order to download 1 file, I'd go somewhere else.

Sound Azuntech Prelude, 2x WD Raptors 10k rpm Raid 0.... Backup 300 gb Maxtor HD nd I think this machine gave me leukemia.user posted image

Maybe we could give non-forum members a slower download rate.
