Hi, I was thinking..
Does anyone really care about DCC's ack packets?..
Think of it.. i mean.. if a packet is lost, then it means the socket will time out, hence when you get the file again, you can resume and it'll be all perfectly fine again.. so why would we actually need these stupid acknowledgement packets that do nothing but waste our up bandwidth?
Second point.. don't we all have /fsend enabled? (/fsend makes 'DCC sends' send without caring about ack packets.)
I think it'd be nice if there was an option to disable the ack packets. Possibly even to disable it to a specified list of users perhaps. I dunno about that, but I'd like to see an option to disable these ack packets.
Without ack packets, users like me, with a sort of decent download bandwidth (and crappy upload bandwidth) could get files faster as the get speed wouldn't be somewhat relative to our upload bandwidth (which ack packets waste).
Thank you Khaled if you're reading this. =)
