    i was working in a big publishing house at the time and remember myself and a few others all queing our downloads at night because they only had a 128k connection
    I think that was the first type of file sharing i'd ever seen or used. Seems to have been over 10 years ago

    edit: just found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotline_Communications

    there is no problem runnig a HL server now, but without a tracker ... is hard.

    Funny you bring it up... Just had to boot old Mac 9600 to do some Disk Copy work with floppy and saw all of the old Hotline stuff. Probably still have a Prepress Elite shortcut. tracker-tracker.com had a list of all the major servers...
