Dont get me started on PC components, thats an even bigger "Bend-me-ova-n-give-me-one" price hike.

My net buddy just bought a swanky new 3 gigahertz bare bone system with a TFT for the cost of what we get a new Harddisk and Memory upgrade.

Total piss take on the cost of components....

Your CPUs ability to run and process information is directly linked to clock cycles, simply more clock cycles means more data can be processed or more programs can be given time to run or protect systems & services, you slow things down enough you can get into any system because the time allotted to...

Clock cycles are clock cycles no maytter how to dress it up or down. Also I was Hacked which is why I dont run it anymore and it also was one of the overriding factors in my Girlfriends machine as it kept crashing, since we got rid of the software we have had no issues. At the end of the day its you...

I use to myself like my girlfriends machine. I would like to point out a risk of running a machine thats connected to the net... if your using up all your CPU time thats spare, you leave no for your firewall to effectively protect your machine, a hacker relys on chewing up all your clock cycles, so ...

We really do get screwed big time here in the UK. for a shitty 600k service on NTL I pay £24.99 / month and for that I get at best a variable service of Up to 600k download and anything upto 360k upload but it averages at around 180-240k and downloading can be just as variable. Given that IM on a...

K, but your still missing the point....End users Simple at the end of the day, the more harder you make something to use and access the less likely you will be able shift the technology. So by the way this thread is going, it seems that people are not in favour of making something that could be user...

Possibly but IMHO a requirement, would you go uot and buy something and have no indcation that its working? Its why I ditch all non-GUI ended softwar like that because you have no visual indication that its working or has had problems, It does also make trouble shooting easier. Hmm, I wonder why ap...

just package it with a settings editor, which has a GUI. That way DCH++ itself remains easy to port, doesn't get bloated, etc. Well said Making GUI is unnecessary hassle in server product, especially when you want to make it cross-platform. It also bloats the whole thing and introduces unneeded com...

Have you ever seen any real server daemons, running on linux? No GUI there either, the servers are started on system startup and run in the background. You can control them through config files. That's how DCH++ will work. And, since DCH++ supports plugins, you can be pretty sure that somebody will...

If you goto sourceforge on the net where DC++ originates, you will find that its open source. IN other words development is done by a group effort in public, all scripting etc, binarys and builds are posted for all to access and write modules for. 'Private Mode' in the HUB means that you have to sup...

Sorry but I disagree that to bring out a client that has no GUI is IMHO sheer stupidity. Users like to have some control over the software they run, without any indication on the HUBs health and settings, how can someone add users in a private HUB mode? PLUS Why is this information about this client...

Re: Create a Hub..........

How can you make a Hub ?, does any of you know it, then plz tell me, so i can start a hub ................. Yeah I agree, I have visited the sourceforge site to keep tabs on the DC++ HUB, no one seems to be writing a HUB client. To be honest, I would like to see some major development on this techn...
