Direct Connect is good too but some hubs needs min share (sometimes 300megs or even 15gigs)
So there is much data in these hubs but they not usually allowed modems!!! and you need share every times something!
Like some of those Sweden hubs there is only fast connection... minimium is ISDN... so you should get your data fast!
Direct Connection can share everything... there is not so much MP3s but movies,ISOz,PSX,PS2 and Dc games and of course porn! much of porn! ;D
