IRC Klipper will be closing

Another XDCC site closing!!!! not much left for those that use xdcc search sites which is a shame because
its a great way to find some excellent content. Also looks like goodbye to support for the mirc search scrip ,
another very sad day :(

Very sad news. Rapidshare/Megadowload are replacing IRC (somewhat) though.

IRC's got several problems:

1 - steep learning curve
2 - crappy download integrity - it's easy for stuff to get corrupted
3 - dearth of decent free clients. mIRC + the XDCC Browser script is practically the only user friendly option out there, and that's using the term "user friendly" very charitably. Did I mention it costs $20?

But anyway, as the OiNK shutdown showed, uploaders will simply find another avenue of distribution.
