Well, to take this to an extreme, people are still gonna murder each other no matter what, so why is "the man" trying to do all in their power to stop it?

cuz guns r bad

Code: [Select]
f(u,c,k,_,y,e,a,h)
{return u*u*u*u-u*u*u*_+u*u*y-u*e+a?k?f(u+1,c,k-1,_,y,e,a,h):0:putchar(u-c+h)==f(u+1,u,k-1,_,y,e,a,h);}
main(){return f(0,0,34,84,2423,26628,72864,98)<putchar(32)>f(0,0,40,125,5809,118995,906750,96)==~putchar(10);}

I prefer p2p networks with integrated search capabilities to torrents.

When I do torrent though (god forbid) I use the pirate bay. Those guys are just... awesome.

Last time I heard, the torrentspy blocking US ips thing was basically a kneejerk reaction to RIAA/MPAA threats of doom, which is to be expected.

p2p networks aren't nearly as effective as a torrent is for delivering either A) special packages, B) large files, and C) Entire albums, or collections (music or otherwise).
This is going in my sig. :)

yeah, getting 3 GB+ files like discographies are hard to find/get on something like limewire... emule is pretty good with huge shit, though


We pressed on. Shortly afterwards, we arrived in a poisonous, post-apocalyptic hell - a sprawling, toxic dumping ground stretching for a mile or two. This is the final resting place for your old TV, computer or mobile phone.

I use the edonkey network, yeah. It plays nice with firewalls and routers.

I've usually had no problem with locating something on ed2k, but I have had problems locating specific things on piratebay, isohunt, etc. The whole 'specific' thing goes two ways I guess.

So you'd be better off with both.

Well, edonkey is built on a network that seems to work better for downloading single large files and whatnot. Kazaa and such are better based around smaller files, because people tend to you know, go offline and fuck up your download.
This is going in my sig. :)

Yeah, the whole "lol discography" aspect is the reason I tend to get torrents, because I'm a total whore for completeness, and don't like missing stuff.

See, a lot of people try to defend torrenting and P2P with all sorts of things, but the way I see it, I know I'm stealing. I just don't care. I'm not one of those people who's going to defend torrents to the end of the earth with some stupid point or technicality, unless it's gonna save my ass from jail/fines, but other than that, I'll readily admit to stealing and pirating.
This is going in my sig. :)

Shareaza is an awesome p2p app. It uses the edonkey, gnutella and gnutella2 networks (as I recall) and pools the resources of the three of them. Very thorough. And also has advanced filtering options which is a must when searching for something like 'horse' or 'twelve year old'.

I do pirate music, movies and porn but I don't like doing so. I refuse to pirate software (this copy of windows is legitimately set up as far as I can tell... I'm probably treading on some part of the EULA... I expect some men in black to come beat me up any day now), especially if there's an open source or at least free equivalent.

Shareaza is a pretty good program.. one of the few that could actually max out my connection.. Until I got uTorrent that is.

Well, I will pirate software and such, minus windows. I just don't like running copies of windows that required some crap to get them activated and then worrying about windows going "not genuine?? go buy me you pirate!" I prefer my programs not to know they're pirated ;)

Also, it's just better to get the high end programs and such, because usually they're better than the cheap alternatives. I hate to say it, but Open Office still has some kinks to work out before it's as good as MS Word. Albeit I'm too lazy to pirate word, so I do happen to have open office on here.
This is going in my sig. :)

I've never really understood that argument. OpenOffice works spectacularly for me and even has a couple of features I'd really rather not do without, for instance the multiple text selection thing. (where you select text, then hold down control, and select some more text in a separate paragraph.)

As a word processor it's fantastic. As a word processor to counter microsoft word, it's fantastic.
