ABC is best. Used to use Burst but had loads of problems with it on my
new system.

What BT client are people using - I've just signed up successfully for
uknova and installed the official BT client but couldn't quite seem to
work out how to start a download as the first file I clicked on just sat
at zero percent with a very slow dl speed of 21k - was it that file or
do I need to choose a different client?

it's best to keep checking regularly too. i couldn't get registered for
most of yesterday, but finally managed it late last night. they delete
inactive accounts regularly and then it's just a case of filling the
available spots.
there's no waiting list as such, it's first come first served. their FAQ
says 75000 members. but when i registered, it was showing as 30000
members and wasn't allowing further sign ups at the time, so i guess
30000 is the limit. Kevin - co-owner/moderator of the blind gamers
