Why can I have the space character in the share folder's directory? that's completely ridiculous! I've been using this path for so long, I'm not gonna change the gazilion other apps that use this path for DC. This means that for this single reason I cannot use DC. And the other clients are even worst (Valknut's GUI is simply unusable). Please help!

If you're having trouble connecting to hubs, put in as your description (including the arrow brackets). This fools most hubs into thinking that you are actually displaying tags.

The S:4 part of the tag, for example, is supposed to represent the number of free download slots for your computer, so it should change dynamically as people download files from you.

It works for me, anyway.

It's impossible for me to dowload some accented words and, as I'm Italian, it's a big truble!
I also think that it would be better if there could be searched more files at the same time...

Serious flaws in file naming and creation makes DC for X
dangerous. First I must join the line of thankful mac-users,
this is the first really usable client for the dc network.
However, one should be aware of certain weaknesses that may
harm your computer. Firstly, files with names with non-ascii
(Latin-1) characters can be downloaded but the names are
garbled, two latin-1 characters add upp to one unicode
character in the filename, sometimes this creates unfortunate
filenames that cannot be deleted in the Finder. More
alarmingly, files created by DC doesn't always create correct
data in the file structure, or the HFS+ tree. This means that
the files are reported as erroneous when the machine is
booted under OS 9. I made the mistake of deleting such a file
while running OS 9 with the unfortunate result that many files
were lost from my hard disk due to a partially destroyed file
structure. After losing ALL data on my hard disk, I was unable to rescue any files using Norton and other recovery apps
