Meh, IRC became outdated when websites started using mroe than plain text. And unlike newsgroups, which have managed to adapt and offer something new, IRC for many was a bit useless.

True. And IRC downloads are more prone to corruption (errors in transmission) than other media. I haven't picked up something useful over IRC in quite a while.

There is room for both IRC, newsgroups, bittorent etc. As long as they get me free wares it's all good.

IRC is still useful for that hard to find MP3. Though, by the time I'm out of que and down downloading the mp3 on irc I would have already unpacked the entire album using newsgroups..

Either way, IRC was fun when it started out. I loved confusing the heck out of my friends with it, they were never able to figure it out.
