Re: What do you want?

Reason #3898593 that torrents are better:

It has taken me 15 minutes to download Office 2007 whereas it would take at least twice that time to download each individual RAR file from rapidshare!

Take that!

How slow is your internet connection? I've never had a .rar take more than five minutes to load on a free account, and since I have a Rapidshit Premium* account it takes about one minute each with concurrent downloads.


* I share it with two other people: we download a lot (recently all of the IMDb's top 250) but have never exceeded quota, and it worked out to be about three dollars each for a month.

You really have that many reasons torrents are better? I mean I know they are better in my book. I just can't seem to find what I want, and no one seems to be of any help when I asked for it, except for MDL

Re: What do you want?

I found some interesting input about torrenting here while catching up about Bit Torrent DNA, which supposedly is a mirror of utorrent though it also allows unknown remote uploads.

Re: What do you want?

Well, paying for a service for piracy is kinda idiotic to me. Since I could only download a file at a time and the rars are multiple files, it would take longer than 15 minutes.

Re: What do you want?

To each his own, I suppose.


Can anyone find a decent cam or a screener of Religulous (2008)? I keep finding fakes, and those that seem to be the real movie require a $5 membership fee, which I'm not going to pay. Any links or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. It'll be interesting to find out if they're compatible with non-U.S. hardware and software.

Thank you Kid for CAD. Next on my list, can someone get me Guitar Zero 2. It's quite a hard one to find since Activison is suing them for making a freeware clone.

Ohhh you're into bikes? I know next to nothing about mechanics and...engines and...all that. But I'd really like to learn. I was thinking about getting a bike instead of a car for a while, since gas and all, but I live in a rainy climate and it doesn't seem practical

Do you have a yamaha tzr 125 thingie? Google images tells me that's a hot ride :P
