Is Torrent good or bad???
    #11344798 - 10/29/09 01:55 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Is Torrent worth the price to join?
Are there legal things to download or is it all basically stealing?

torrent price?  Never heard of it.  Just download a free bit torrent program and use websites like http://www.torrentreactor.net/ to find files to download.  It is basically stealing though.

That's kind of what I thought. I was hoping to grab a few songs here and there to study but don't know how to feel about it. Karma can be a fickle old gal sometimes.
Maybe I'll just pass.
Thank you for that answer.

If musicians are really concerned about spreading a message with their music they wouldnt be concerned about making millions off of record sales.  Screw musicians who think they should be rich.  They make enough off of concerts as it is.  Really you downloading their music for free is Karma getting back at them for being so materialistic.

you don't have to worry about that, karma is as real as god, santa clause, the tooth fairy, or the boogie man.

Torrents are free man, if you pay for downloading torrents, your getting ripped no matter what...lol

its a massive ugly program.  a bittorrent proggie needs to connect to the swarm and download a torrent file, and maybe have a few filing options, but it doesn't need all that bullshit that vuze has...

i use deluge for linux myself, great client, though on windows i used uTorrent until bittorrent bought them out.

Deluge looks good. I'll try it.

A lot of music is on Youtube, but not near as much as what's on torrents.

U torrent +pirate bay= endlesss data, music, and movies.  I like pirate bay because there are legitimate reviews of every torrent, also torrentz searches all torrent trackers.  If you're really worried you can also use peerguardian which masks your ip address.  And if you are paying for a torrent client you are getting jacked, they're all free.  Torrents are good for music if you are looking for say, the whole discography of a band, or maybe a whole album, but specific single track are pretty rare.  For that I used to use bearshare pro cracked, but they shut that down so now if I can't find what I'm looking for through torrent sires, I use limewire pro cracked to find specific tracks.

last time i used peerguardian it didn't mask your ip, it blocked ip's on a "bad" list from connecting to you.  the only way to block your ip is to use a seedbox or a proxy.

correct. if you mask your ip no one would be able to connect to you.

to the OP: make sure you look up how to properly configure your router and/or firewall for best speed. google "port forwarding." no reason to get 6k down when you can get a solid 800k.

a good BT setup and an rss reader can eliminate the need for cable tv also. check out http://www.ezrss.it

in addition to the pirate bay i use mininova also. and if demonoid could figure out how to run itself without going down i would use that pretty much exclusively..

Personally i love Transmission for Mac/Linux though ill have to look into deluge.

It really makes me sad that pirate bay is going to a pay system now, who knows when, but still, im getting all the good torrents i can while i can.

Demonoid is great, until the recent events...

To OP, as hinderpits said, look into port forwarding, it will help A LOT.


As for private trackers, keep an eye on http://filenetworks.blogspot.com/search/label/Giveaways they announce when some private trackers are allowing signups.

Some are specialized trackers (eg. just movies, just music, ect.), some are general media, all in my experience are kinda small but have some good shit.

I appreciate all the good information and I have followed most of the links. My main problem is now understanding all of the info.:shrug:
I'm not berry tech savvy.:facepalm:
I'm not completely clueless but I'm concerned about downloading too many programs and not knowing exactly what I need and don't need. Or more importantly not knowing how to use what I download (programs) that is.

All you need is one bit torrent clinet. I love uTorrent. Other than that, that's all you need.
