View Full Version : P2P QUESTION
07-02-2002, 07:31 PM
Whoa, by the look of all the other posts this one will sure seem pretty stupid... Anyone knows which is the best peer to peer software for actuarial information purposes? I mean, I dunno if anyone has ever tried to get information from a p2p network... It's pretty lame when you don't find a thing, but chances are if you do find something, it'll be good. Some papers and things you won't usually find in the Internet tend to appear once every while in p2p networks.
Nothing really urgent, just a curiosity.

(took me 2 minutes to figure out "TIA"... but then the brain isn't what it once was....)
never heard of a p2p, but it sounds like a great resource! i'll keep my eyes open and ears open and... well that's it.

A common-sense, non-scientific, home-user P2P (peer-to-peer) networks definition: those to which you can access with software like napster, Kazaa, morpheus, mynapster, and several others. These allow users to connect with one another, commonly via a server, and share the files they make available for sharing by moving them to a special shared folder in their PCs. So what you share, others can "see" when they search for a specific topic.
Some of the softwares are meant to work with specific files (e.g., napster: music), but nowadays most let you share and download files of any type.
Hope that helps.
