  • torrent sites, advice on good ones and bad ones?

    Just getting into computers as a whole and have discovered torrenting. It's awesome. Can anyone tell me some good torrent sites to check out? I dont know if there is any truth to this but someone told me some are dummies that dont really have a lot on, and may have tracking shit on them? Can you half tell Im outta my depth here..

    torrentspy used to be great, but they've disabled the comment system (the only way you can tell if it's a legit torrent or not), and they dont display anything new for some reason (any of the 2nd season of heroes, etc). it's crap now.

    other than that i used piratebay.org/isohunt.com, but neither of which have a comments system, and as such, you're susceptible to downloading 350/700 meg rips of some tv show that was incorrectly labeled.

    torrents are fairly easy to track, and the same with torrent clients, however we don't get raped and spat on by the US government over here, so you're safe for the moment.

      A court ordered torrentspy to track it's visitors from the US.
      This is general advice only and does not take into account your individual objectives, financial situation or needs (your personal circumstances). Before using this advice to decide whether to purchase a product you should consider how appropriate it is in regard to your personal circumstances.

                  Demonoid only opens "self-invites" occasionally, you just have to keep visiting them and hope they are open when you drop in. Failing that, current members can generate free invites.

                  Demonoid is a pretty good site, though they had some issues about 5 weeks ago, and were nearly shut down permamently.

                  Torrents(z?)forall, Wildbytes, Torrentleach (if you can good a good ratio FFS!) are all great, as well as any number.....once you get a good torrent search going and get some torrents, just check the url of the tracker and visit the site, work out how to get an invite and you're up and running....

                  Failing that, there's good 'ol mininova

                      Or you can bypass the middle man, and go straight to usenet. Anything you want, delivered at the maximum speed of your link. You typically have to pay to get cache access though. Speculatively, If i were to want to get a video out from the video store, i could download it faster than it would take me to drive to the store and back, and it's less than a kilometre away. And if it's in the video store, it's on usenet. The only torrent site that came close to usenet that i've ever found is the old somethingawful tracker.
                      Or at least this is what i would do if i stole movies/software
                      "In all the human societies we have ever reviewed, in every age and in every state, there has seldom if ever been a shortage of eager young males prepared to kill and die to preserve the security, comfort and prejudices of their elders, and what you call heroism is just an expression of this fact; there is never a scarcity of idiots." -The Culture
