yes well let me explain more then, lol,
what you see in the search window is not realy an indiation of who realy is available for connection.
all the search window does is show you a record of who is suppose to have that fine, but it does not show you who realy is available for connection.
in shor don't belive anything you see in the search its not a good way of mesuring anything.
we have seen instences where a file had 1000 sources in the search window but not even one available source for connection.
i hope now you understand. the test showed that if connection is available then you can download it faster.
so the problem is not with you boss its the sources. they might even be the fake ones from the riaa, put there to discourage us from downloading. (as if that would stop us, lol)
