Search google for "bitcoin fallback nodes" and you will get a wiki page with a list of stable IP addresses that you can use.  Then start your client with -nolisten to reject incoming peer connections, -noirc to not bother listing on the irc channel so there won't be as many clients trying, and -connect=ip.address two or three times to specify the fallback nodes you wish to use.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

Great, thanks.

I can see about 48 now... it seems to be steadily going up for myself over time.

Here's a fun trick (that will blow your mind the first time you see it!)

Quickly shut down your bitcoin client... and start it back up again...

It should almost immediately inform you that you have ~100+ connections... WOW!?!?

But I assume that it uses cached connections from the previous load... until it can find new connections and delete the old ones... which is why it does this.

Gavin/anyone care to explain?

I've had similar experiences where I restarted the client because it would not connect and it almost immediately showed connections Huh.  I would love to see if someone had an explanation for this phenomenon. Grin

Until I opened up port forwarding it was at 8, afterwards its 100+ (113 currently). I would recommend people open up port forwarding, connections are much quicker and blocks seems to download quicker.
