    i was only refering to .RAR files when discussing ziping and stuff, all the others are fine, and dosnt ACDSee have problems with rar as well
    All is fair in Scanlation and Scanlator

    [b][color=green][font=tahoma]HEHEEHEH! Sorry, but anyways *ahem* I hate it when I download manga only to find it was the chapter I have downloaded before (I have experienced this), ex: I'm downloading chapter 246, only to find out it was 245 (wrong link) SHIT! I had to wait 30 minutes to download, as if choosing the bad link wasn't bad enough, the slow server added fuel to the fire!

    Well. The most thing I hate is when you have to pay for downloading.

    Ok...scanlating is in most cases illegal so help the manga with buying it!
    But the scanlation groups do it just for fun and as a free fanservice. If you have to pay to download it smells like you've been ripped off. The money doesn't go to the workers of the group but to the site owners.
    I can understand the bandwith costs money but my opinion is that those sites should be relying on donations mostly.
    See the greatest manga archive I ever found in the net: www.gotlurk.net
    It still works with donating money.

    Ah..and I love irc so it would never be a problem for me to use it.

    Yeah lurk is the best, I don't need any other source for downloading manga, since they have about everything ever scanlated. Now there's a good reason to learn irc.

    Sometimes on mIRC, I just freak out because I really don't know how to request files from the bots. I get pissed of at sites which suddenly tells you to pay. Hmm, what else? Having to download each chapter manually? Because I'm too lazy. =]

    [b][font=tahoma][color=green]Try to get something like "Flashget" and "Download Accelerator", you can downoad multiple files at once WITH fast speed. And the best thing about it, you can resume it whenever you want!
