IRC is a text based protocol... its almost imposible for it to go slow.

If you are refering to DCC (XDCC as its more common name) transfers over IRC then please SAY X/DCC.

Slingshot is 'prioritising traffic to these kinda sites" megaupload, rapishare, sendspace

1st 10MB are at FS then the rest is a 30KBps

As for the spelling, that argument is about semantics, the meaning could be understood.

As for the not look to see if there was another thread on the subject.  grrrrr.
