    First you need a Delorean and some weapons grade Plutonium, then you need to phone up Micheal J Fox and ask him if he still has Christopher Lloyd's number. :)

    After LimeWire was closed down on 26 October 2010 (LimeWire was under a court injunction to stop them from distributing and developing P2P software) FrostWire 4 became increasingly popular as it was almost identical to LimeWire and had similar features. After version 5 FrostWire can only download torrents, those using the Gnutella network either have to use version 4, or switch to another client altogether.

    Under the current climate of pirate bashing, folks wanting to P2P freely may still be wanting the Delorean to avoid prosecution in the future.

    Ah, the good old days. Looking for something was the thrill of the chase.

    Wheeling and dealing to get accounts, and the joys of getting 4k/second on a 33.6 or 56k modem (ie 17 Mb per hour was the best you could get).

    Requesting files of bots in IRC. Now those were the days. Back then I'd download just about anything for kicks and giggles. When I say back then, I mean like 1994..
