What, are you referring to the link??

If you are, yeah youre right, they don't provide the iso for ahem "legal" reasons, but there are other places you can get it.

yes, you can try edonkey, thats where I heard that there's a few good copies floatin aroiund, also you can email me and I'll give you an irc server and channel thats handing them out, I dont wanna post it because I ve heard of message boards gettin shut down for ppl postin this info, so mail me, if stank is ok with me posting it right here, I will do it, but unless he says so...

the irc method is slow, and not just snail slow, turtle trippin on shit slow, I have been waitin for like 6 hours in queue, anyway...

one of the 25-30 gig ones.... you do know with plusplus you can get on multiple hubs right? make sure you don't have "only show open slots" clicked.... everyone is trying to get this ( because its free ) so most ppl that have it have no open slots.

about your share..... share your windows folder.... they don't check it on log on they have to physically search your share!! probably give you another gig and a half..

hmm, sweet, thanks for the info, actually I was thinking of copying my windows folder like 10 times to be able to get into the really big hubs...they're prolly gonna figure it out in a couple of days ans kick me out, but thats just about enough time I need to get longhorn, btw I was using ice chat for an irc client, and I had been queued up for like 8 hours before my turn finally came, but I had previously tried to get the longhorn iso and it stalled after like a minute but I forgot to delete the 500 kilobyte iso file that had downloaded, so this dumbass chat client when propmted for a dcc send if the file exists in the downloads folder it will just ignore the dcc send, and me not being home I couldn't do anything so now I am tryiing to get back in queue, but I cant access the fserver anymore, prolly cuz of all the traffic, dammit, I hate this, well maybe copying and pasting the windows folder like 10 times will help.....

i don't think it would be a couple days.... more like a couple hours. and if you have a big share they might check it right away. I was reading the forum @ dc++ and they have a script that will pick out the windows folder and auto-kick/ban them.... but i have not seen alot of hubs that use this script

yeah, right now I'm going at 5-7-8 kilobytes a second, it aint turtle trippin on shit slow, but, but it could be better, like 16-20 kb's that would be much better.
