WinMX Shut Down

Source Title:
WinMX Suspends Operations
Story Text:

I have been using Winmx for a while now, there are many other networks that are better I imagine, but I got myself into a happy rut! I found it easy to use and the network seemed to be vast and I could always find what I wanted.

But I have not been able to connect for a few days now, slashdot have news as to what happened, I also came across a patch to let you connect via another method - have not tried it so I dont have a clue if it works or not, more info on the patch:
