|What is .GET?|
|.GET, pronounced dotGET, combines the best features of IRC
(@find/@locate, fserves, xdcc bots, kryptnet, dcc transfers, etc) with the
ease of use of Napster clones (Kazaa, Morpheus, etc) without the hassle of
using another application. It can be thought of as a Napster, that can
not be shut down, for IRC.
For a long time now, IRC has been the premiere way to get new files. From TV shows to audio files, all usually appear on IRC before they do elsewhere. .GET simply provides an advanced interface that makes locating and transferring of these files simple.

|This application is aimed at users of IRC who are fed up
with the time it takes to find what you are looking for with fserves, but who
still would rather use IRC than an application such as Napster.

Also, I was just mentioned, it is for mIRC. This means that unless your using an emulator, you need to be a windows user, and use mIRC as your IRC client.
|How is this better than any system currently in place?|
.GET is a migration of many
current systems. Here is a brief explanation in the ways it is better then
NO SPYWARE! When you install Kazaa you
get many other programs installed on your computer that are used by advertising
companies to sell your information, and give you ads.
Napster uses a centralized
server. This makes it very easy for someone to shut it down. .GET uses
any IRC server and any IRC channel. As long as you get together with
others users, it is 100% server configurable. As long as you can get onto
IRC there is no stopping .GET. And the best part is, .GET has no
proprietary files like the new Napster is going to have!
While Gnutella boasts no
centralized servers either, it can be very slow. .GET has a semi-centralized
