That is a great way to get stuff... We found a decentralized program. It doesn't have a server. Each computer uses broadcast traffic to show what files it has, and then you can download it. Completely secure, and completely non-tracable. We also get 1megabit downloads here at school off the dorm network with it....Only works on lans though.

for some reason i doubt my p1 233mhz 64Mb 80Gb box will handle that.... i don't even have 3d graphics for crying out loud... i type faster than this thing can display with only YIM and MSIE 6 running... i warped my motherboard last week.... 4Mbps... that'* a fantasy to me.
