Well, considering that the command line version of the app downloads
perfectly fine, I think we need to examine the Windows XP SP2
limitations and how Stefan is dealing with those.

Some things to speed up the client side:

1. Do a quick UDP strobe with DHT_HELLO_REQ messages to all
sources. This will bypass the windows limitations as far as seeing
who is online with an open firewall. The client DHT port is the same
as the file transfer TCP/IP port.

2. Do custom timeouts for the TCP/IP connections of 3-5 seconds.
Ignore the system default timeouts, as these can be stupidly high
sometimes.

3. Keep the number of incomplete TCP/IP connections to about 5-6,
the maximum total # of connections per download should be upwards of
at least 50.

4. Dylan needs to be checking both today's table for sources, and
then yesterday's table if today's table isn't returning enough sources.

The database is like the live state of the Ares network, so it makes
no sense to do another search. Though we may be able to organize the
source data differently some how.
