Could anyone explain the following thing to me?
If I join the Hub and share the Queen material can anyone enter my computer system and download any files on the hard drive or this is not true. And another question if I have less than 2 Gb of Queen material can I join the Hub anyway or I must have 2 Gb no less?
I'm looking forward to someone's explanation.

P.S. And please name some concerts that anyone downloaded at the Hub, just for me to decide.

The 2GB treshold is obligatory. However, if you cannot make this minimum, I'd be more than happy to send you a show through regular mail, for you to share.

When you are on the hub, people can download your file-list. (A list of the files and folders you decided to share.) They aren't physically accessing your HDD. When people see something in your file-list they like, they click it, a link is activated and they start downloading these files from you.

It's a rather safe project.

In addition, this is an old list of shows I'm sharing( It has grown the last couple of weeks):

Thank you very much for the explanation. And thanks very much for the list of the shows. If it is not a problem, could you send two shows:
1) Golders Green Hippodrome (1973-09-13)
2) Vienna Last European News (1978-05-02)
Here is my e-mail address andrey8764@yahoo.com

How is it possible to send through email? I mean sending two shows takes up a lot of space right? I mean we would be talking about at least 200 MB right?

Anyway I don't want to waste your time but if you happen to send shows through email would you prehaps consider sending me a copy of 1973-09-13 London =Golders Green Hippodrome? I've been looking quite some time for this concert but never found it.

My email is jeroen_van_eden@wanadoo.nl

I would greatly appreciate it! :-)

I meant regular mail. I'm sure you heard of it. You have a piece of paper, folded into a thing called an enveloppe. You put something in that enveloppe, like a letter or a card, or a CD. You write down the name and address of the person you want to send it to and deposit it in a red box, mostly stationed near a cash machine. People in little red vans collect this 'mail' and make sure it gets delivered to the person you wrote on the enveloppe. ;)

Sorry... I had a couple of drinks already. =)

Anyways, since my concerts are all in FLAC, 2 shows would prolly be 800MB or more. No way I am allowed to E-mail them. But since your name and E-mailaddress tell me you're Dutch I'll send you an E-mail and we can discuss it further. :)

Banshee, there is a problem I'm not Dutch. I come from Russia, so there is no opportunity to send them through regular mail in that "red" boxes. But there is a solution to this problem, at http://www.dbpoweramp.com you can download a music converter that can convert to any format including FLAC to MP3, you also have to download a FLAC codec, everything is free, if you convert FLAC to MP3 the size will be smaller, and two concerts would be appox. 150-200 Mb. If you could do this, I would be most thankful.

Why people just don't get it? Don't convert FLAC files to MP3.You lose quality.MP3 IS LOSSY!!! And you said that you wanted to come in to the hub but the 2gb share limitation is in your way.Would the smaller file size help you to come to the hub? I don't think so.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. And... why is sending through regular mail a problem when it comes to Russia?

You know I always listened to music on a cd and mp3 and I didn't find any difference. So it makes no difference in MP3 or CD. FLAC takes more time to download and more space on hard disc. So Banshee can you convert these two shows to MP3 and send them to my e-mail address?
