ne hub on???
Hi to all my blogger/ non-blogger frenz,
This is a small story about how i hit a jackpot….
Lights, Camera, Pepsodent 🙂 :-
I had brought a brand new P.C. a few weeks back & it has a huge & spacious hard-disk, to be very precise its 160 gb. So now i was on a mission to fill the hard-disk to the max & i knew it was a hard job. I started mailing ppl who were in my locality to share some movies & songs with me. One of my freind readily agreed to it.
We decided to come online @ the sametime so that i could explain the steps to her. But she came with a new idea, she asked me, “Do you have ‘IP Msgr‘ installed on my machine?”. I couldn’t believe my ears, she was talking about the same messenger which is the back-bone of many in my office & i was one of its slave when i had joined my firm 🙂 (those were the days). Luckily i had the installer for IP Messenger with me, i quickly installed it & we started our tranfer, but we couldn’t tranfer much coz the transfer speed was very poor. So, we called it quits @ 2.00 in the night.
A brief intro about IP Messenger, this msgr works as a normal messenger, its not a flashy one, as most you u might think. Its the drilled down version of Yahoo & MSN. Close to wht G-talk looks, but even G-talk is way ahead of IP Messenger. It only works on a LAN, so you cannot add ppl as u do in the rest of the messengers.
The next day was a different story, i saw around 15-16 people on my IP msgr & i knew no1 from the list, so i closed it and went back to work.
All of a sudden i got a message on my IP msgr, “ne hub on???“;
i promptly replied to his message , “Which hub are u talking about? ”
The reply was ”any private hub”
I said, “how do u connect to a hub??”
he said,”Download DC++ & u r all set”
I asked, “How do i connect to a hub once i download DC++?”
He replied, “Just press ctrl+Q and key in the IP address of the Hub”
I asked. “Where will i get the Ip addr from?”
He replied, “If any one hosts a hub, they’ll circulate their IP addr, so tht other ppl can join & share stuff”.
I thanked him for helping me, coz i was doing all this for the first time.
Later in the night i got a few hub names tht i could join, and from there it was a different story. In the hub u have access to almost anything & everything. From Games to movies to songs to installers to porn, etc, etc…..
Its a heaven for all.
I was really suprised by the hub thing, coz i never expected a hub in my locality. I had heard from a fren of my abt the HUB in his network & was supposed to subscribe with his network. But somehow things didn’t workout properly & i had to go for my current network. But now am really GLAD.
i never realised tht the small message would change my life so much.
