    Ares is a good substitute for Kazaa. Bittorrent just bugs me....everyone raves about how good it is....but it just hasn't worked for me....i had a bunch of downloads which just stopped halfway through!


    How Bittorrent works:
    You download a bittorrent program like ABC. You go to websites such as suprnova.org and click on the link to what you want. It will now appear in you ABC program as a torrent. It then downloads bit by bit to a folder of your choice!

    basically it's a file sharing program right. So the other people will have to be online for it to download. Try downloading something very popular. If it's still not working, it could be a firewall problem (maybe! i'm not a computer genius....it's just what i've been told before!!).

    you download a small .torrent file which hold information about where you can download the file you want. You double click the .torrent program (assuming youve got bittorrent or another client) the program will load and you choose a directory where you want to save the file, then you download the actual file through the bittorrent program. As you download it, people get parts of the file off you aswell. A good place for torrents is: http://www.suprnova.org , and for the bittorrent client: www.bittorrent.com

    It is hard to follow, but this thread tells you enough to get started. I have now begun some downloads, but it is a bit slow and people can flood your bandwith with uploads.

    uninstall bittorrent and use bittornado instead - in can give you faster DL speed.

    http://bittornado.com/download.html

    The usage is simple, basically you download small .torrent file. Save as or Open.

    If you choose save as you must double click on the file. It then acts as a shortcut for networking you with other peoples. Select a directory you want to save the files in.

    Please note that more 'seeds' there are for the file, the faster the downloading speed will be.

    When there's enough 'seed' to offer quick download, you must be active/contributing on the uploading of the section you already downloaded to other people, in order to gain/maintain a decent downloading speed.



    One last thing..







    Bittorrent = kazaa + winmx X 2 (for downloading animes anyway)
