Is Usenet the generic term for newsgroups?

will give altbinz a go once I uninstall grabit.

grabit conflicts with kaspersky so wont use that anymore :thumbsup:

Thanks anyway Barney.

solved... good.

I was just going to say that I have never seen my cpu get to 100% because of grabit... Only problem I have is when I am trying to watch something from the harddrive while downloading... especially high def stuff seems to stutter... But apart from that grabit is good.

yep, kaspersky must have been scanning big time as speeds are constant at 10mbps! :w00t:

why I stuck with utorrent all this time is embarrasing! :oops:

6 mins to download a tv episode :w00t:

I give it 2 weeks before you get totally bored with the speed. I lasted a lot less :lol:

lol... I am not a heavy downloader but it will be good to be able to download highdef stuff 5x quicker...

I just hope they dont throttle the speeds like the currently do for me on 10mb...
