"Waiting For Busy Hosts"/"Need More Sources"
Alright, it seems to me that every time I try and download a file, regardless of the availability rate, I receive a status message denoting one of the aforementioned problems, either a "busy signal" or one telling me there aren't enough sources.

Normally, I'd just shake my head three times, then move on to another file, but the frequency with which this is occuring is more than the constant speed drive on a Boeing B-52H Stratofortress long-range strategic nuclear bomber, which is roughly 4001 Hz. Okay, so it's not that much... but it's happening EVERY TIME I try to download any song.

Any suggestions?

Fine ... select the file from another source, else, stop it from the download window & reselect it from the search results & re-download. Back it up with the occasional fresh search. Some days or times of day or weeks are better than others. It always help to get much better results if you'er uploading at the same time. Always helps!

Alright, cool. I'll give it a go.

Appreciate it.

Didn't work. Something's not right here. It never used to be like this -- ever.

I wonder if it was a Windows or McAfee update that caused this issue to arise...
