    lol same for me, excluding one time.

    BTW i know everyone is complaining about it, but i gotta agree that the rapidshare cats make capture codes so difficult to read.

    Yeah, I can't read those freaking cat codes...
    If I have to download roms now, I download them of FileFactory. No codes there [​IMG]

    I've have my Rapidshare stuck at 14 minutes for two days now. I tried resetting my internet but no luck.

    i reckon they should have made the captcha coloured, or have polygons instead of animals

    they have a stupid 3d doobie now >_> its harder to read. anyway, happy hour is there from an abundance of bandwidht leftover from a day, happy hour will continue untill the bandwidth is wasted away.

    I can't stand megaupload. In order for me to use it, I have to install the toolbar. And whenever I install the toolbar, it fucks up my browser.
    The toolbar is basically malware since it changes so many shit without your permission.

    I tried the user agent switching trick but it doesn't seem to work...

    Because if I don't it'll give me some bullshit telling me that all the download slots for my country are used up.
    When I have the toolbar it never gives me that. And once I even checked it to be sure. I installed it, it worked fine. I uninstalled it 5 mins after, it stoppped working. I reinstall it and wonder above wonder, IT WORKS!

    Rapidshare happy hour is on alot lately, but I mostly wait until off-peak times to download anything from rapidshare, but thats still rare but it does seem to be on every time I do use it.

    For some reason every time I tried (like 5 times), it was always Happy Hour. So yeah, Happy Hour isn't just one hour a day.
    Plus, Rapidshare bottlenecks at 80KBps which sucks.

    I've seen Megaupload download at 1MBps
