    I've been a fan of the quaint little p2p program Poisoned for a long time now and have had a fair share of problems as anyone would expect from an open-source, perpetually beta project, but this new one has me thrown for a loop.

    It started this morn at about 1 AM, when Poisoned "Unexpectedly quit". Subsequent launchings of Poisoned have without fail immobilized my computer, revving the cpu up to 100%, spinning my disk alarmingly fast, and using all available memory and upwards of a gig of virtual memory. The program never actually connects to any of the servers either.

    I tried to go to the poisoned project page but it appears that they are unavailable. Does anyone know what is going on? Has this happened to anyone else? Is this an indication that there is a huge memory leak in the program, and can memory leaks "grow" out of previously stable programs?

    Poisoned runs fine for me and I can connect to the Poisoned website without problems. Seems like the problem is on your side. Perhaps you should trash the preferences or something like that.

    Thanks...That seems to have done the trick.

    *fingers crossed*

    Still can't connect to project site though.

    Some times mine can't connect to the servers so I just quit and relaunch it and it seems to work fine.
