Drop me a PM Chris. I've got a guide using irc
Cheers guys

Mike, will give that a bash, thanks mate
Mike could I have that guide as well? I have used mirc for a chatroom but nothing else.
If you have Ebooks its worth downloading this program calibre-ebook.com/
can you hook me up with the guide too please. I think I have had it before but lost it.
Mods - Can i post the guide in here or will it be removed and my wrist firmly slapped??
Post it up - its Christmas
Hi Mikethemanc, you can post guidelines in here but no links to personal websites unfortunately

* Self promotion of businesses and anyone involved with them, including affiliate networks, marketing companies, SEO, PR etc, survey threads, post incentives, charity request threads made without prior permission, auction / marketplace sites (with the exception of those sellers approved by HUKD), personal sales elsewhere, links to personal websites, requests for referrals, referral links, third party affiliate links, advertising for personal gain and displaying of e-mail address in the forums is spam
IRC Guide

You need an irc client installed. I use chatzilla (for Mozilla firefox) as it's a small firefox add on
but any client will work. You can find chatzilla by searching for it on google.
mIrc is a common alternative.

You need to load up the client and then type:

Code:
/server irc.irchighway.net


This will connect you to the irchighway server. Once you're on there you need to type:

Code:
/join #ebooks

#audiobooks
#movies


This will take you into the ebooks channel which has more than 2.2Terabytes of ebooks
for free download. Once you're in the simply type:

Code:
@search name of book or author


You will get a message saying that your search has been accepted. A few seconds later
a searchbot will offer you a file. Select accept to accept the download. That will
send you a .txt file that's zipped. Extract that and you'll get a list of files. I
searched for James Patterson and got a list of 1000 files. Here's an extract from it:

Code:
!Bald James Patterson - [Alex Cross] - Jack And Jill (UC) [txt].rar - 202.21 KB
!Bald James Patterson - [Alex Cross] - Kiss The Girls (UC) [txt].rar - 197.63 KB
!Bald James Patterson - [Alex Cross] - Roses Are Red (UC) [txt].rar - 135.80 KB
!Bald James Patterson - [Murder Club] - Second Chance (UC) [txt].rar - 147.38 KB
!Bald James Patterson - Hide And Seek (UC) [txt].rar --------------- 147.96 KB
!Bald James Patterson - Murder Club - First To Die (UC) [txt].rar -- 164.34 KB


Say I wanted to download the first book. I'd copy the text shown below:

Code:
!Bald James Patterson - [Alex Cross] - Jack And Jill (UC) [txt].rar


And paste that into the irc window then press enter. After 2-3 seconds you get a prompt
asking you to accept or decline the file. Select accept and it will ask you where to
save to. Select a location and select save and it will begin downloading.

Using this method I've found loads of books that weren't available anywhere else.
If this seems like a longwinded way of doing things then so be it. It's a quick (once
you get used to it) way to get hundreds

BTW - the current Chatzilla works fine with Firefox 13.0
