Looks like even the Rapidshare servers have crippled all thanks to heavy loads on their server. If the code and counter weren’t enough, now non-premium users have to even select the network to download from.
The networks are termed Net-Mirror ‘Alpha’ and ‘Omega’ .It only adds to frustration selecting the network, waiting for the counter and then enter the code. Sucks! I always preferred rapidshare to download stuff from, if the file-size was less than 50MB or so. The new feature doesnt mean much to people like me with narrowband.
