Then I might have greatly missed a real good software? Doesn't some internet archive file have that software or was that just an online website? I like the fact that HakuNeko gives the option to select your online source since Batato is most of the groups go to haven since they allow uncompressed full quality upload.
You could also IRC. I have found IRC to also a really good source to download manga. Most groups keep their stuff available over there, since it's much less hassle with copyrights and all and can be kept somewhat for a longer period of time.
DDS still works, but slowly some of the (dozen or so) sites are starting to stop working.
-That's what happens you you haven't updated in a few months.
You might try it out and see what you think.
-It's pretty easy to find a cracked, working, version of DDS.
-Not sure if Batato still works (I've never had a login for it, so I never used it).
