I have DSL!!!! *does happy dance* After them telling us we were 100 feet too far from the box, another tech guy came this week and said all he had to do was boost the signal (there was some kind of cap on the bandwidth that was interfering). And I just got a 4MB file in . . . ONE MINUTE. *gapes* *head explodes* Is this . . . heaven? XD I mean, when I was doing 2,000 bytes a sec on dial-up it was a good day. I may actually be able to get anime now! If I can figure out how . . . really breaks my heart now Audiogalaxy is gone, I'm back to Google searches to get songs.

Of course, the bad news is, now I may NEVER go offline, lol. Well until I have to go back to school . . . I was actually gonna ask for some anime/j-pop/j-rock song suggestions (I swear, my guilt factor is so high, I really DO buy the CDs!), but maybe I'll get some from the music thread.

Not from Kazaa or Morpheus I can't. (I'm a Mac user.) Sputnik was the last functional file sharing program for the Mac, and it died with Audiogalaxy . . . ;_; But, anyway, DSL is available in more and more areas, and I bet the price will drop too. Just hang in there Ina!

Welcome to the high speed club! :)

You're on a Mac? You poor deprived child... Try here- www.zeropaid.com

File sharing tools for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Yep, I looked there. There are plenty of Mac programs, but NONE of them work. Trust me. You do a search, you get zip, or you get search results and all the DLs fail. *sigh* 'Tis Google for me, or pleading with friends to send me stuff, heh.

Your best bet is to get a cheap low end PC. ^^

Well, I got a DSL connection, but here in Brazil they are kinda slow compared with the DSL in US and Canada.
At least I have a friend of mine who works in the Internet Departament in a Univesity, there is a conection of Gigabyte there!
Everyday he brings about 2 or 3 cd's with anime or manga! I think I will work at the Internet Dep. too.! ^_^

Ayaka, if you wanna download anime... You're gonna have to start using FileServers on IRC ^_^;;
It's a little hard to learn from the start... but first thing you wanna do is download mIRC (http://www.mirc.com). I'm pretty sure there's a mac version too.

Can you use Direct Connect on a mac? That program's great for getting anime.

Otherwise, I guess you could try and make friends with someone who's got an FTP server full of anime, hehe. XD

I'm working on a File Server full of stuff for peeps to leech... But I will ask that you upload in return. :)

I'm stuck in the endless loop though . . . most people won't give you stuff if you can't upload something to them, but I don't have anything to upload because I can't get anything because I don't have anything to upload . . . oO;;; Well unless people want MP3s, I am able to get those via Google, and I have a lot of manga translations . . .

I have an IRC program, but I CANNOT figure out how to use it. I'm not a total idiot, really, but I'm stumped. Guess I'll try and find a different one.

Get on AIM, and I'll tell you how to do the FServs and stuff in mIRC... It's all about what room you go to...
