People still use these things? What for? I haven't used a P2P programs in a couple years and I download as much music as ever, probably more now than previously even!

From previous experience with this program and Limewire, they both stink/stunk!!

Virus all the way

Oh well, there's no news here... anyway, any P2P program using ED2K is crap, and the limewire is the worse of all, well, if you want virus i think that is the easy way to download them 8)
