This tool is a file sharing software (like Gnutella or Napster), but it does not need a special server (like Napster) and does not have any problems with searching (like
Gnutella). The source of its efficiency is the Internat Relay Chat network, also known as IRC. The original purpose of this network, which connects servers all
around the world, is chatting. But what is the difference between a message sent over IRC and a request to look for a file? You are right, nothing. So this tool tries to
connect to the IRC network and sends its search request over a special channel there. Because I do not want to flood these servers too much, the search results are
sent over a direct connection to the asker (the results are much more than the request). The files (which contain even more data than the search results), are also
sent directly, of course.
