Soulseek anyone

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Soulseek anyone

I was wondering if anybody has soulseek on here. It's such a better p2p network than the others. Basically looking at someones computer or at least the parts you want them to and they can take as they please and you can share as well.:thumbs:

Soulseek is actually pretty shitty compared to Ares. Check out Ares and you probably won't go back to soulseek. I've gone through a lot of P2P programs...DC, Kazaa, Limewire, Napster, IMesh, Bearshare, Morpheus, Soulseek, Ares...and Ares is the best I have used yet.

Does it use somewhat of the same setup as soulseek cause i love how you can find the people you know easily

Very similar. It's a true P2P program, no actual servers or networks that anything resides on, it's just a program for people to sit on for you to search their files. You can choose what files even load into your library, whether you want to share them or not, and whether people can actually browse your files or not. My download speeds on Ares have hit over 120kb/s, which is about the maximum that my net will allow, so that's nice to see. The chat rooms.....interesting to say the least lmao.

and... we all know how much Limewire sucks :clap:

What's wrong with Limewire? I use it if I need a couple of songs lol...Works fine for me.

yeah, i do too... its just that if you happen to use it too often... it can give your computer some serious viruses and crap... my computer crashed after having that on it for about 2 months... im not fully blaming limewire but i have reason to belive that it had something to do with it:thumbs:

Then you simply suck :P I have always had Limewire installed, I rarely use it anymore due to lack of sources + clean copies of songs, and having to deal with sponsored results, and never had a problem. Ares is now my P2P of choice :D

so then you also somewhat agree with what i said... because limewire doesnt always give you the best clean files there is...

For downloading large files, bit torrent is best. It downloads pieces of the file, and every sharer has like a small percentage of all the pieces. Downloading movies only takes a couple hours. It's not good for small files.

BitTorrent also sucks because you have to upload to download :(

posted by  dodgerforlife

Yeah but that's only fair...isn't Ares the same? (Where eople can download from you)...And getting games from Ares would probably be harder because most people don't keep the intall files on their computers...

posted by  chris_knows

mmm, true, but some games are available. But what I mean is I went to download the Windows Vista iso file on BitTorrent.....and I ended up uploading almost as much as I downloaded, which is a huge chunk...and that rapes my bandwidth doing it.

posted by  dodgerforlife

Yeah it really does I'm gonna set up ares tonight.

If you pop into any chatrooms, you might see me in there....Tяϊรพωϊяέ is me :)

I nearly max my bandwidth pretty much every month..I've downloaded stuff like a season of Brainiac (3.02GB) and uploaded about 8...I guess I should start relying a bit more on Ares lol.

Dude......I only have 5gigs down 1 up.....i dl'ed 5 and change and upped 4 doing Windows Vista :(

posted by  dodgerforlife

What happens when you go past your max bandwidth? Mine gets shut down and then I have to call them to bring it back lol.

That sucks...why are your limits so low though?

posted by  chris_knows

I get billed extra...like two bucks per gig.

And it's because im on wireless highspeed :)

posted by  dodgerforlife

Two dollars doesn't sound too bad, but it probably adds up.

Oh...I forgot you had wireless internet lol.
