If it's music you are after, you could do worse than try the Binaries. Get yourself Forte Agent for downloading, and Powerpoast for uploading.

alt.binaries.sounds.mp3.full_albums
alt,binaries.sounds.mp3.complete_cd

To name but a few.

mirc or ftp are the best programs, mirc has loads of channels with great stuff. ftp is only good if u know the ftps and know where to find the addresses

The programs you are after are referred to as "peer to peer file sharing" or "p2p file sharing", so search for these terms on the net and you will find loads.

The people above are talking about completely different things to what you asked for.

Cheers.

Forgive me if I sound ignorant but I'm unfamiliar with binaries, are they similar to newsgroups? How do u find channels? eg like the mp3 ones u mentioned.

Also can some1 explain the basic commands needed for mirc?
Thanks for any help.

BTW, do people reckon there will be further clamp downs on peer2peer networks? Well I know there will be some, but I mean will new networks always pop up? I heard Gnutella is un-closeable, does anyone use that?
It was a shame when Audio Galaxy gave up without a fight, i expected a long battle at least....ah well.....
