  • Can you believe it? We're up and over 13,000 registered Sharky Forum members this week! Of course with this many users there is a whole lot of excellent posts, and this week in the Forums Spotlight we've taken several interesting threads on LAN Party networking, Favorite Games, the Palomino, Freeware FTP programs, Dial-up Networking, and many other useful topics, and put them all together in an easy-to-read format.

    The Forums Spotlight is a highlight of just a few of the new topics posted in the SharkyForums, where over ten-thousand enthusiastic computer users post daily for help, to discuss the latest trends and products, or to just shoot the breeze in the Off Topic forum.

    Each week in the Forums Spotlight, we take several of the most popular, insightful, or even controversial threads and present them to you for easy digestion. Feel free to add your own thoughts (subtract the profanity, please) and help us multiply the reader participation here at Sharky Extreme (and you thought math was tough...). We've added links on each spotlight page so you can easily add your own comments and contribute to the debate! If your repartee strikes us as useful, humorous, or otherwise entertaining, it stands the distinct possibility of being featured next week.

    Without further ado...
