My resonses:

1. The app will now, for each transfer, purge any stale or unused
sources every hour and connect to the server to get a new list. This
should fix any slowdown issues.
2. There is now a global variable that keeps track of the last time
an ares connection was made. Whenever a new connection is asking to
be made, if the last time is less than a second, then it is denied.
3. I think that moving all of my files into the root folder and all
the include files into an include folder or something sounds
appropriate. What do you guys think?
4. The default upload setting for new accounts is now "Medium" which
is the 60kB/s. "Fast" is unlimited upload. The download settings
remain unchanged.
5. Well, right now the keywords are added one at a time when an
account is created. Either we can, upon account creation, shoot them
to the edit account page to enter them in, or require that they enter
in say 3-5 keywords or something. Let me know what is preferred.
6. Done.
7. Well that's annoying as all hell ... But ok. (TODO)
8. Dylan? Serge? Whoever ... When you give me their queue and the
search results, I guess along with the rating value, give me a health
value as well, 0-5, and I'll just do the same things with the ASCII
stars. I don't know how you want to come up with the value, and I
don't really care.
9. Done.
10. Done.
11. Move to top works for me on FF OS X and IE XP, so ... yeah.
12. N/A
13. Done. (Although right now it's really basic. Just let me know
what verbage you want there.)
14. Well, for Ares files just don't send me the posted date, then.
Just send an empty JSON string.
15. Number of views will now only be visible if the value is over 50.
16. It's not as bright now. Better?
17. N/A

So new app, new applet, new php.
