    here

    http://www.dapcentral.org/index.php

    go there and click on freakazoid (all the way to the left) scroll all the way down when the next page loads, then click on the HYPERLINK that says "text" and it tells you the "eDonkeylink:"

    Hope this helps the both of us :)

    i just had a look at that site and all i could find was the eDonkey address for that episode. then i had a look at their site: http://www.edonkey2000.com/
    it looks like eDonkey is only available for Windows and Linux.

    i don't know what the next step is??

    I Think I'm Paranoid

    (with apologies to Shirley Manson & Garbage...)

    I got a little paranoid with eDonkey - for one thing, stuffing around with the Terminal doesn't sit well with a pleb like me who doesn't quite understand Unix (I pulled the reins back pretty hard after BASIC, Cobol, Fortran and Pascal. I think my head might explode if I attempt another language!).

    Also, more paranoia - with all the latest Security Updates from Apple, it seems they're still trying to plug the gaps for people trying to access your computer as "Root". It seems to me that eDonkey (along with some other P2P clients) would be an ideal platform for hackers attempting to do just that - and therefore create havoc with your system.

    Example: A colleague of mine installed Limewire on his iBook running OSX, and funnily enough, still uses it with a broadband connection. However, when he came to me with a problem when his hard drive kept erasing files, I found that a few extra users had been created in his login screen.

    And since no-one else - apparently - has access to his system, it seems a bit suspicious, don't you think? (cue: "Twilight Zone" music)

    I dunno... :rolleyes:

    !

    5) open cocodonkey, preferences, locate your mldonkey



    THE STEP ABOVE IS THE ONE I HAVE TROUBLE WITH, where should the mldonkey be? is this the file in the applications folder? I always get this message in cocadonkey: (image below)

    [​IMG]

    I guess step 5 is where I get stuck, oh and witch mldonkey file do you put in the donkey o mat and where is it located and what zipped file does it come from
