      Re: rapidshare

      Though I'd bump this thread instead of making a new one, I seem to be having probs downloading off rapidshare lately (free account). It was working fine up until a few days ago, now I get 'limit exceeded' or the 'already downloading a file from your IP' message. Anyone know what the problem could be?

      Re: rapidshare

      Thanks for the replies, I guess I have no choice then.
      By the way IAmNotTheEnemy, as I was using a free account it means I can only download a specific amount, then wait about an hour or two before downloading again. I don't think it has anything to do with full allotment of downloads. And like I said this was never a problem until recently, it won't let me download anything at all.

      Re: rapidshare

      i don't know whats wrong with it, its been fine to me lately, downloading at roughly 1100-1400kbps.

      though, if you pay $6.95? roughly, its 4.88p in the uk, so it is quite cheap, on rapidshare, per month, to download anything that 1 month, gain points by downloading, use points to pay for another month, etc.

      how much is yousendit a month? for comparison.

      Re: rapidshare

      yousendit is free (for files up to 200MB i thnk) - and on my 2MB connection is get 250KB/sec at least at all times....rapidshare varies from over 200 to sub 20KB/sec which is why i dont use it

      there are download limits to files though (the number of times a file can be available - not just ur downloads per hour)

      I've recently started to get this as well.. restarting router to get a new ip doesn't work either. They must have blocked the proxy or something..
