What P2P networks (like Kazaa or WinMX) are most popular nowadays? How do they compare?
Anyone knows where I may find some info on the topic like filesharing network rating (based on average numbers of hosts involved or average amount of content being shared)? Some sites containing information about different p2p networks?
I need to do a little research and here I have all of them blocked so I can't even download a bunch of p2p clients to take a peek myself.

My boyfriend's new loft apartment has a very large glass door that leads outside. Winter is coming here and it gets VERY cold overnight in the entire apartment (and it's only October). We have the heat usually set to about 70F, but it still get really cold because heat is leaking through that door.
Is there anything we can or make the apartment maintance people do to stop, or lessen the heat from leaking outside overnight?
I really doubt the apartment people would even consider replacing the entire door or anything extreme like that. -_-;
What is your exact favorite color? (with as much detailed description as possible. Not just "blue," give me a break ;P )
Do you remember the item or something that made it your favorite color?
One of mine is a rich ruby red and I used to have an Old Navy t-shirt maybe sophomore years of high school that I looooved the color of and it's been my favorite color since.
Another is pastel baby pink. In senior year, this really pretty popular girl wore the day before Christmas break a pastel pink sweater with matching gloves and beanie and it was the cutest thing ever that I fell in love with that color of pink.
And my gay friend's favorite color is pastel baby blue because he used to have a crush on a hot guy who had a baby blue sweater and he's loved it ever since.
I purchased something on ebay, the person siad they'd only deliver it using UPS not the post office. It would've been great if they used the post office because I have a PO box, but he wouldn't work with me.
Is there any way to get UPS to NOT deliver a package to your house at all, just let you pick it up at the UPS place? On the website it says after one delivery attempt you can place a "will call" on the tracking number and it won't go back out on a truck - but I don't want them attempting to deliver it at all.
My parents are really nosy and I don't need any questions about what my package is, so does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? I know to call UPS and talk to them about it, but it's 1am and obviously I can't call them right now so I was just seeing what you all had to say.. :)
Oh and my mom is out of work right now (she hurt her back) so she's home all day, as is my dad because he works at night (obviously if they worked during the day this wouldn't be an issue). So..thanks for any and all help. :)
2. If so, do you dual-boot another OS? What OS? How much time do you spend in each?
3. If not, have you ever tried Linux?
4. If you have and gave up on it, when did you try it? What made you give up?
5. If you haven't, what would it take to get you to try it?
[Edit: I'm asking these questions because the local Linux User Group is planning a LinuxFest where people can bring their computers to get Linux installed, or just come in and ask questions. We're planning to support Fedora Core for business interests, and Ubuntu for home and general use. I'm an Ubuntu guy (my home and work computers both run Ubuntu exclusively) so I want to get a feel for what kind of experience regular people have with Linux.]
Last night I watched Wait Until Dark on the telly. It was a good film, but I got distracted at a crucial point in the film! Please can you fill the gaps in my brain?
Susy had been looking for the doll. She managed to find it - but where did she find it? Next, she phoned Mike to tell him she had the doll. I glanced away for a minute or so. Next thing is, she is sobbing and sobbing, holding the doll - she then proceeds to smash all the lightbulbs - she has realised she is in danger. What happened in that minute I missed? Did she notice the doll was filled with drugs?
Where can I find a picture or stencil for pumpkin carving that isn't too complicated, but is pretty cool.. stuff like cats, bats, witches, ghosts, etc. - stereotypical Halloween stuff that isn't faces. Thanks!
Okay, the following is sort of a long, not-really-question that I have. I posted it to my own journal, but despite all the people on my flist who like to bitch about politics, I don't usually get any sort of an answer when I post things like this:
I live with my boyfriend and our roommate. My roommate has a girlfriend who has been one of my good friends since high school. (I was the one that introduced them.) When the three of us first moved in, we all got along great. The three of us were best friends. We've been living together for over a year now, but our relationship has changed.
My roommate, K, and his girlfriend, T (who spends a bulk of her time over here), never want to go and do anything with us anymore. This hurts, especially because T has been my friend for so long. Whenever they leave to go out somewhere, they just walk out without letting us know where they're going. It's not like I have to know where they are every second or anything, but it's just a courtesy they never extend- like when my boyfriend and I go somewhere, we're like "Hey guys, we're going out to eat, see you later." In addition, they're always making subtle rude comments towards us, acting like they're making fun of us as friends, but it's really just a veiled insult. Also, I have both K and T as friends on my myspace account, and lately both of them did a little meme/survey thing that asked to list your top ten friends then answer questions about them. On both of their lists, neither my boyfriend and I were on there (and they had both listed some of their coworkers whom they never see outside of work as friends).
I want to have a sit down talk with K, because if he has any sort of "roommate" problems with us, then he needs to communicate them to us so we can fix it. I want to save our friendship- I miss both of them terribly, even though I see them every day, we never really "spend time" together. And as a side note, our lease is up in February, and my boyfriend and I can't afford to live on our own.
But my boyfriend doesn't want to talk to them. He says screw them, if they don't want to be our friends then that's it. But I want to talk to them because I miss both of them so much.
I'm really nervous about bringing up the conversation, and if my boyfriend were there to back me up, it would be easier. I know I just need to do it, but I don't want to mess things up more.
Advice/comments/additional questions are welcome. I'm just trying to get a better feel for this situation.
Your nephew is 4-years-old and afraid of the dark. Every night he asks his mom to lay with him because he is scared. She tells him: he is not a baby any more and he needs to grow up because only babies and girls are afraid of the dark. Then she closes the door and leaves him in the dark. If his parents hear him crying his dad will come in and spank him. They refuse to give him a night light or let sleep with stuffed animals because they say that he needs to get over this. Do you approve of this? If not would you say something to your brother or sister about this? What would you say? What would you want to say but wouldn’t?
There are 3 people: A, B, and C. Their Parents are all best friends. (With another lady but her children are much younger) They all are over 20 years old and all live at home while going to school or saving up to move out. A is the only male. B is 3 years older then the other two and could be described as a spoiled brat. C is B’s best friend. She is getting tired of B and is using her boyfriend an excuse to break plans. A would like his girlfriend to become better friends with C, but doesn’t want to ruin things with B. If A’s girlfriend and C were to make plans and B found out she would throw a fit and stir up things between all the moms. They have tried to make plans together, but C always cancels. A’s girlfriend is also babysitting quite a bit for the mothers’ friend because B always complains about watching them. She also says she’s got too much school and what not. But when someone else baby-sits B gets upset. Everyone would so love to tell B to shove it, but they can’t because it would ruin their moms’ friendship and make living at home really hard. Did you understand that? Have you ever been in this situation? What would you do about it?
I was checking my hotmail account when suddenly I realized I wasn't viewing my e-mail anymore but someone else's (my sister who happens to use the same computer). but this happened to my dad a while ago when he was checking his library account and came across someone else's information (a complete stranger).
has this type of thing ever happened to you? does anyone know WHY this happens? it kind of freaks me out.
The cell phones in our household (we have a family plan, through Sprint) have not yet changed from DST, and when we've tried to manually reset them, they just flip back. Anyone else with Sprint having this problem, or are we just cell-phone-time-pariahs?
This question is inspired by The Swiss Family Robinson. I'm watching it right now- this is one of my all time favorite movies.
If you had an island all to yourself, what would you do with it? What kind of cool things would your island have on it? Who would you bring with you to the island? Would it be a private island just for you and your friends, or would you invite others and try to establish your own government?
How does fate function in Beowulf? Lame I know, I have a lot of good quotes of Beowulf mentioning fate. But, I don't understand how specific parts add to it? Like, duh he tells people what to do if he dies and stuff, but is that the obvious/only answer?

Me and a friend were talking about Christmas lists and she said it was rude to make a list of what you want. Do you think it's rude?
I told her that my family wasn't religious, so we don't celebrate the religious part and we just get presents, basically. We'll put up a tree and decorate it, and my mom puts out Christmas decorations and such. We don't usually have a Christmas dinner either, just watch Muppet Christmas Carol and drink lots of egg nog. So I also want to know how everyone else celebrates Christmas. Do you also celebrate religiously by going to church?
Is there anyway to get the smell out of Hockey gear?
My boyfriend is a hockey player and he claims there's no real way to wash and clean the gear, thus it smelling absolutely wretched after every game. I said febreze but he said it doesn't work. Anyone have any ideas?

Any spefic one that is just so good I have to have over the others?
I'm addicted to My Fair Brady but for the life of me, I can't find out anywhere on the internet if they are still together. Could anyone point me in the right direction or just tell me if you know? Thank you for aiding my addiction.
For those of you who are fans of the Friday the 13th Movies or the Halloween ones.
Do you feel Jason and Michael Meyers are similar or different?
Here are the facts I have gathered...
They are both silent guys who wear a mask who chose to kill people mercilessly.
Both use knives, axes or whatever they can get their hands on.
Both walk at a speed of 1 mile a year, and both can teleport right behind you the second you look away.
Both are stronger than the average person and can toss, snap or otherwise mangle a person with little effort.
Both have inhuman resilience to injury, they both just keep getting up....
And no matter how many times or in how many creative ways you kill them, they just keep coming back again, and again....
Now the differences...
Jason has a child like mind that uses only to kill "deserving" people, and any who get in the way.
Michael Meyers on the other hand is just on some hidden agenda to only murder his family, and any who get in the way.
The only other difference I have seen is that you never see Jason until he is right on top of you. Michael Meyers you see him stalking and moving around and you usually get to run from him for quite some time.
So do you feel they are basically the same thing OR are they very different?
What other similarities or differences do you know of?
If a guy is tutoring his girlfriend of 1 month, and her friend (who isn't friends with the guy) at the same time/in the same hour , do you think it's fair that he charges her friend $20/hour, but he doesn't charge his girlfriend?
edit: the friend does know that his girlfriend is getting tutored for free.
Is there any way to make that stupid windows start key not open the start menu when I hit it? It's annoying. I've tried to fix it myself but I can't find anywhere to disable it. I have a dell laptop so it's really easy to hit by accident.
