Black is GOOD (plenty of fellow users with this file to share)

Purple is BAAAAAADDDDD (few users with this file)

Look down the Availability column (far right) and select the one with a high count.....but be aware that new stuff may take a looonggg time to dl if your stuck in a queue. Try pausing for a few minutes then restarting if you don't seem to be getting anywhere.

Oh and Overnet goes on the amount of files your sharing and NOT the SIZE of the files like most p2p appz.............so dload plenty of small files....like cue files or nfo files to up your rankings ;-)

Check the files on Jigle or FileDonkey for fakes...or use the new FakeBuster app.
