I was just playing around with mldonkey a bit.Is it just me or is it real easy to find new 'friends' with mldonkey?
I had suddenly two dialers on my box that definitely didn't belong there.

what kind of "dialers" I've been using mldonkey for about 3 months, and never heard of anything like that. If you're not running mldonkey as root you shouldn't have any problems with software installing itself, even in the worst case scenario.

I am not 100% sure that it was dialers but it looked like it - the one I remember was called hotsex.exe; I don't see what that has to do with the non-hotsex-stuff I downloaded.
I didn't feel like installing wine to check out what it really is.
Plus - d/l'ed some stuff and the system clock changed - no biggie - I just changed it back.After that mldonkey crashed - but not all of it.So I go and kill it all (nicely).After that my suse 8.1 download is no more a suse d/l but 18yrs_old... - you can guess the rest.I keep downloading that whatever it is right now because I want to see what is finally popping up.
Plus there seems to be a problem with servers - when I shut down mldonkey yesterday it souldn't connect to any servers anymore from it's new list.So I go and install the thing again with the server list that comes with it and is about a week old.Connected within 2 minutes??!!
Something is screwed up there.
