  1. err..isn't the "job"/purpose of antivirus software to "scan" files on your hard-drive disk for potential malicious code? Well...if you are checking your e-mail, through something like Firebird, Outlook, etc...the e-mails get retrieved from the ISP mail server, and get downloaded to YOUR hard drive, as? FILES! hehehe. So....if any AV can't detect viruses in e-mails...get a new AV. Or, just don't use one, and only execute trust-worthy files from trust-worthy sources.
  2. I cant see why this would/should be implemented into a "client". I didnt read indepth, just waht's stated in this thread, and yea, there are ways to run BT tracker clients on the server/tracker end, correct? So, basically, if a torrent on the tracker had low seeds, the server/tracker-side client would kick in, and start helping out by sending pieces out. Addressed to the peers, and From the tracker address. This seems more of a server side implementation. Like, for example, I believe when revision3.com, commandn.tv, and other torrent based pod/vidcasts release new episodes, they use something similar to this. remote machines, all over the world, to help spread out the torrent, on high speed connections until a reliable seed/peer ratio picks up, and tags along, at which time, they would disconnect their main servers/web seeding.

    Great programs you use

    Web- depends, IE6, patched to the core, High Security, etc. Or K-Meleon, or PortableFF, or OffByOne Movie/Audio: MediaPlayer Classic and/or VLC. IM: ICQ IRC: mIRC, bare bones, just tweaked out so it looks good, and functions decently. no custom addons scripts, etc. voip: ventrillo when gaming Unzip: WinRar Pictures: MSpaint.exe....lol. it works for what i need it to do. CD burnin: nero 7 ultra Antivirus: none. common sense, and general good computing is always better than memory/CPU hogging AV....though, I might try out ClamWIN/AV since it's open source and free. Firewall: Linksys BEFW11S4 v4. all 3 connected computers run Windows Firewall. no nagging, it just works . Also use pg2. FTP: I like FTP.exe....lol hm, i think thats it. Oh yea, text editors. i use notepad primarily, but also use(d) UltraEdit, ConTEXT, Notepad2, Notepad++ really, depends what im doing
