I was new to the anime Naruto for awhile, so i had to start from ep 1. I used BT for the first like 50, then I switched over to DD, but found that to take too long. Then, I turned over to an unlikely source, Bearshare. I've found that 1 ep can take about 1-2 hours to download. Im not sure about you guys, but I find that better than the 6 + hours it takes to download on BT and DD. I bet you guys have your doubts about Bearshare or Kazaa, etc. but i find them better. As for the viruses, Norton does the job! You probably think that programs such as Bearshare are illegal? Idk but I still use it. So just a suggestion to those that dont want to wait, use bearshare as long as you have a strong antivirus program. ^^ just wanted to make a suggestion. Heck, i bet alot of you ppl use things other than BT and DD. :)

you guys must be on dial-up modems. BT only takes me 2 or 3 hours to get an episode, and Direct D/L only takes 3 minutes per episode

In your area there must be no one on the grid for cable. I have dsl and get decent speeds. But again depends on the seeder leecher ratio. Also 56k Users really fuck everything up for us. Once they start downloading forget about it it takes forever then.Sorry ahead of time for those who are offended, but damm it sucks when i want to download something off the net and more then 3/4 of the dls are 56k AHhhhh. Very frustrating. Plus this bearshare explian a little more about it

It takes you 6 + hours to download an episode? The newest episode takes like 20 mins for me. Only the older ones take a long time, but in 6 hours I can download like 6 or 7 episodes. What is Bearshare btw.

o_0 bearshare is this type of P2P like BitTorrent and Kazaa. lol maybe most of my downloads of bittorrent were 56k ppl;;;;; plus i was new to Naruto so i was downloading the first 100 eps. i never downloaded from NaruCentral though, because they never did keep the rest of the eps

garbage! all p2p networking satellites are crap and so is norton... if it detects one virus, be aware that you have another 100 viruses which it cant even recognize, everything you download from bearshare or kazaa, many viruses come bundled up with it, use Nuker, that will do the job to get rid of them, or just manually delete the viruses, and also, i've noticed Norton cant detect anything in the registry, and do you realize your pc slows down too much after too much use of those p2p garbages??

wait, how are the eps at NarutoCentral like less than 40 megs? Do they compress it? i go to any other site they're 170 >< thats why it takes so long i guess, idk

yeah i think they compress so ppl with dial up dont take as long. The quality aint as good though it is like less than a quarter of the others

Its beacuse its converted from Avi to Rm format. They do this for you 56k users. I believe one time Naruto Central Had it in full AVI format. But not anymore. BUt i hear soon it will be available in both formats here in naruto Lounge.

I also just heard that in some areas Verizon will be able to handle3-5Mbs. Thats Insane but i cant wait until its here in New York.I guess the Overall speeds for Dsl is About the same all Over the Country. But cable Seems to vary alot?

There are like 3 different speeds of cable modem. Better speed is more expensive (oviously) im not sure which speed i have.
