Spoze you wanna know if limewire's still a thing too?
Also why private sites are better. Additionally, protocol encryption and disabling of broadcasting to public networks are client options to avoid tracking - some private sites demand this.
Limetorrents is though...
Ha LimeWire. Haven't heard that word for ages.
Anyone still on Napster?
or Bearshare, haha
Sounds like a gay dating app
Kazaa, irc dumps, iinet Pipe all good memories.
I moved on from torrents to usenet years ago and it's been pretty good. Is anyone dabbling in both and can compare current states? Usenet can be annoying with releases being taken down - even with auto downloaders like Sonaar.
Yeah torrent retention is always a plus, most of the 'good stuff' from P2P sites ends up on Usenet anyway, you just need to know what release groups to look for that have quality encodes.
I'm GONNA THROW OUT A RANDOM WORD FOR NO REASON WHATSOVERED - WHAT CONCLUSIONS YOU MAY DRAW ARE YOUR OWN.
(oops sorry re caps)
Ask for an IPT invite in the invite thread, it's a general tracker but they have lots of windows software, never give them any money, just seed.
I ended up going back years ago, Usenet was giving me the shits with fakes and half-completes, trojans, etc, completely un-moderated but costing money to subscribe.
I still use Sonaar to auto grab private torrents instead, client auto-extracts, stuff just shows up in Plex, Win.
Use an old version of utorrent that had no ads
Or, better idea, a modern/updated open source client instead:
Pro tip: when dealing with this sort of tool in this sort of environment, be very, very wary of what software you use and download. Here be dragons. Keeping up to date not only ensures fewer issues (newer clients have newer features that are better from a performance point of view), but also fewer risks in terms of out of date libraries (2014's OpenSSL "heartbleed" vulnerabilities, for example, and countless others).
Shame about the artists.... LOL
I don't know what this is.
Tixati is a good client. No spyware etc. I've never had a good experience with private trackers, impossible to get 1:1 seeding overall and it's designed that way so they can get your 'donations'. Almost everything is on open sites and what I can't find there is on Usenet. Torrentfreak is a good news site with a lot of handy info about which are the most popular sites etc.
Eh, its effortless.,... bypass the DNS restrictions by changing to Googles IP addresses and just go for it. If anyone is watching it doesnt seem to show. You can always go VPN or other ways to hide, but it doesnt seem to be an actual issue in my experience.
It doesnt appear to be. Never heard of anyone getting pinged for it apart from the Dallas Buyers Club thing, and that took ages and then fizzled out anyway.
