First of all, I hope this isn't an illegal topic, I couldn't see anything about it in the rules so I hope it's ok.
Well after shamefully lagging behind using a dial-up connection for so long I am finally getting Broadband tommorrow. I was just wondering what people used to download stuff these days? Music, videos etc...
A friend of mine uses Bit torrent and has a Torrent search application which he recommended. Does anyone know anything about this?
Any thoughts, views....
Well p2p is actually quite dangerous now..with the RIAA and whatever AA after your ass when you start that torrent lol, although I use bittorrent sometimes to download stuff.
Actually there are alot of other p2p clients out there mIRC being one of them 0_o just have to find the right channel which can be a pain, and then you have to queue up before you can download the stuff, so I pretty much prefer bittorrent. There are others...but most of them contain spyware lol.
If you're scared of some body taking legal action against you then you have to watch out for what you are downloading, for anime you are pretty safe to download the unlicensed ones, e.g. naruto (though I heard that its been licensed sometime ago in japan, at least thats what my anime watching friends say).
Games are risky, movies and music are a big no no unless you want some guy come knocking on your door and ask you to pay some dumb fine for IP infringement. Pretty much its a use at your own risk thingee lol. GL HF
Shareaza is supposed to be good. It downloads files from several P2P networks at once. On other hand, this brings increased risk of viruses...
Don't even think about Kazaa, it sucks, full of spyware, adware and viruses, not to mention fakes.
Download a program called 'peerguardian', it's a firewall with the IP addresses of all the record companies etc, and blocks attempts to download from you from these (and thus prevents prosecution)
Move to Canada, it is not against the law here to share files.
Other great thing about that is I can post it here without any trouble for all you other Canadians.
Aside from that, yes I use bit torrents. Shareaza works for this and I would recommend it as the search functions it has are also quite useful.
Its where I get my torrents. Once again, this is legal in Canada folks, you can be prosecuted for this in other countries.
It takes about 5 minutes once you choose the catagory, there is a lot of back end sewarching that goes on with this page. It gives many many bit torrent results however.

I SUPPORT THE COMMIES!! FOR DA MUTHERLAND!!!!! 0_o
Heh, ok about buying original stuff, support IPs, pay the people who spent their hardwork on the product thing. I do buy original stuff sometimes, and only when I feel that the product is really worth it.
I usually buy original games and...ummm I only download them if they are too old and you can't find them on the shelf anymore. Otherwise I just borrow from my friends. Music? thats another problem I am not willing to pay 20++ bucks for an album and find out that I only like a couple of the songs inside and the rest were crap...thats why I am switching to Itunes =D. Pay for the stuff that you like yeah thats the way
Bittorrent and Direct Connect are the best IMO. But you have to share alot of files to get into the good hubs on Direct Connect.
P2P programs like Kazaa and limewire usually bring spyware and viruses, so don't consider those programs.
OK, so I`ve downloaded a few torrent-files. What now?

Do you have a torrent client? If not go download some.
You can try the original bittorrent client:
You can try out this java bittorrent client Azureus:
I tired them both, the original client works but don't expect any spiffy features or cool gui. I tried out the Azureus a few weeks ago and it works too, has nice gui so yeah its good.
