Re: What do you want?

PeerGuardian. At least blacklisted IPs can't connect to me and find out I'm downloading anything copyrighted.

It's still pretty open, you don't really need skills to use an ip that isn't on a public blacklist.

"I think I think therefore I think I am."

And both. I have a fondness for Latin, but I don't know much of it. And I love Ambrose Bierce.

I take it further than simply using PeerGuardian. I use other addons for Azureus that hide my IP. I block ports on my router that others could sniff.

And furthermore, I could (if i wanted) surf and download completely anonymous using the TOR network. But that would cause my download speed to suffer. Truthfully, I'm not at all worried about being caught because there are so many people out there who are easier targets since they don't go to links to hide themselves.

What do I want?

Premium memberships for everyone who wants one on Almost Smart! Including myself... but only so I can test HTTP versus torrent downloading.

Re: What do you want?

Can you get "Speed Grapher"?
I've only seen the first 4 episodes because Hollywood Video is cheap and they don't bother getting the whole series of an anime or manga.
And does anybody know if Inuyasha is going to come back with all new episodes?

You can run a WoW server off your own Pc if you want, although I have NFC how to do it.

I am sure I could figure it out but I wouldn't recommend doing it. Running a server is a huge strain on resources and I don't have enough of them to run a WoW server effectively.

Re: What do you want?

^ very true... unless you had two desktops (not old crappy ones) then you could probably host a server with one... but you would have to get it its own independent internet connection.... and in my case... get it TWO connections and bridge them together so that you can get one decent connection....
