    dc++ not available for the mac

    Hi, i also used DC++ on my pc. The mac client is not very good, in fact, that's not the case, it is just that it is an official version (dc++ is not) and has the same limitations that the official pc version.

    I guess the best option is using dc++ in virtual pc. I have had no problems till now. DC++ is not a resource hog.

    what peer-to-peer file sharing program do you recommend then? I am open to everything but I just dont like those "must-upload" kind of programs like donkey and mule stuff...

    so you expect to download all you want and give nothing back to these people? thats pretty selfish. you want to use other peoples bandwidth but not allow them some of yours?

    people like you don't deserve to use peer apps

    all I want is to be able to control the amount I am uploading, because if I dont do so, my 128/32kbits of DSL connection starts downloading nothing when someone uploads with 4-5kbs/sec. I dont think thats selfish because there are people in the world who are not effected from uploads and there are people who are still connected with 33.6k dial-up modem..

    I just upgraded my connection from 56k dialup to DSL, hoping that upload wont slow the downloads, but unfortunately it does, so all I want is to be able to control it without the programs like netlimiter and etc..

    is this selfish?

    yes it is! it slows your downloads, not stops them. so you don't like to share just because it makes your downloads slower?
