I used it in college and Napster before it. I remember you'd be 95% through a download and the other person would cut you off God be with the days of 10 hour downloads!

At least with torrents they'd resume later on.

For some torrents there were .PAR files that contained redundant information so gaps could be filled in, in case you didn't get 100% downloaded.

Limewire was great, you could always mitigate the risk of viruses by listening to part of a track to ensure it wasn't dodgy.

The only problem in our house was the first phone bill we got after installing dial-up, I think I was about 350 quid. This would have been around the turn of the millénium, so that was punts.

Also, there was one local busybody who had figured out that if she kept dialling the house phone, she would eventually manage to knock off the Internet. I wouldn't mind, but she was only ringing in hope of getting some scandal. Can't tell you the amount of Limewire disuptions that wagon caused. She put years on me.

Same here, we got a package with Esat whereby if we only went online after 6 it was flat rate for the month.

Limewire! I remember I used it all the time. Was living in Korea at the time and it had the fastest broadband speed in the world (maybe it still does) It was reliable enough , could download Lost a few hours after it screened you in the States.Would take about 90 mins to download, this was 2005!
