Did you mean torrentreactor.net? Bittorrent sites are legal. People use them to distribute large LEGAL files over the web. It just so happens also that it's a great piracy tool that can distribute ILLEGAL site too.

Yeah!! The file is through torrentreactor.net and I didn't want to get caught up in some possibly illegal thingy down the road... So it really is legal?

Yes. It's not illegal to sell someone a car to be used to rob a bank. wink.gif

 

Bittorrent sites aren't doing anything wrong, they are only proving the means to trade legal software. If it's ILLEGAL, then it's on the trader. They do track IPs, btw.

Ugh, I hate Limewire! It really is full of crap and viruses so I quit using it. If I want something I just search it and go through megaupload or zshare. Takes a little longer but works fine with me. I think Nuri used torrents all the time but I never had.

IMO Azureus used to be such a great client until they bloated it with the whole Vuze thing.

 

uTorrent is a great full featured client with no BS.

I'm a little ticked at the whole thing right now.. I wanted this manual that torrentteactor or how ever you spell it said was on this other site.. Somekind of download site but it was like $4 for a 3 day fee which I paid but once I got access, the site said the file didn't exist?? Looks like a bait and switch scam to me.. I ended up buying the manual on dvd on ebay and chakled the $4 up to being a newbie at this..

karren it sounds like you're talking about downloading something from an ad that comes up first when you search for things on torrent reactor. was it a "usenet" or "download provider" link? these are shown in the external search section and are basically SCAMS. lol ignore them, even if they say like, "car manual in full" or "complete car manual" those things just put whatever you type into them in their titles.

 

what you want to download is a torrent client, like utorrent or something that the others have been recommending. then use torrent reactor or mininova (but not pirate bay atm as its trackers are all down because of the trials i think) to search for your car manual, and scroll right down to the results titled "torrent reactor search results"

 

those things are just there to steal your money!

Oh no ! Can you launch a full analysis of your comp with your antivirus ? Or do you have to reformat everything ?

 

Azureus is decent, okay i say that but i never use Vuze, that stuff sucks and occasionnally bugs me. I can also suggest BitComet smile.gif

 

I second Mininova, that's where i get my stuff.

Karren,

i have done a lot of Bit Torrent. My advice is to steer cleer of the illegal movies. But there is plenty of legal stuff too! it is great, but if you're doing heavy downloading expect your computer to get bogged down.

I think 4shared.com is great because you don't have to download a program onto your computer and it supposedly scans all the files for viruses before it uploads them.

I use utorrent as my client, and get torrents from Mininova and Demonoid

I like torrents, but sometimes if you're trying to download something obscure there will be no one seeding it. Or you get to 99.9% downloaded and the seeders disappear (I've had that happen). :P

 

My boyfriend likes downloading stuff and has a premium Rapidshare account. I will not pay for these things but he will so we use Rapidshare a lot and we used to use Usenet but it can be hit or miss, even though you can get files a good bit faster. Torrents can be pretty are slow but are more reliable.

 

Overall we use Rapidshare the most because of the speed. If you're willing to pay for the premium account then I'd say it's the best option. For music and movies anyway.

 

Edit:

Yay Mininova! That's my go-to torrent site.

 

When did Suprnova come back? I checked for it just now and there it is. Did that not disappear or am I imagining things?

I am not an expert, but seems like it is not legal lol. Anyways, if you want to download something very much, you can always use VPN, just be careful not to be caught up. As for the further file opening and conversion, I highly recommend this tool , it helped me out million times in issues like these.

    • Hi girls, I have such an issue with fake tan settling into my pores and looking dotty. I would really appreciate if some of you girls could take my survey (its v short). Curious if it's just me with this issue. TIA https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5WY7S67 
    • Acne is a very common skin disorder now a days. Though its not a serious threat its very irritating and leads to stress. Sometimes when not treated well it leads to scars and infection ..... http://skincarey.com/healthy-skin/natural-home-remedies-for-acne-skin-care/
    • Last February, I was looking forward to going to a special ABBA tribute concert. I grew up with ABBA as a teen - I liked to dream that I was Agnetha. I had all of the albums. On the morning of the show, we woke up to find a pipe in the kitchen had broken overnight, and it was absolutely miserable. We are just now getting over the trauma. I was so unhappy and disappointed - of course I missed the show. But the ABBA group returned to my area yesterday (they are from Sweden), and I got to go! The show was magnificent! "Agnetha" was like an angel in the lights with a long gold shimmering cape. She had all of the choreography and mannerisms down pat. "Anni-Frid" had the bubbly personality and sang a song in Swedish. "Benny" played the piano brilliantly, and "Björn" played a great guitar solo.  The lesson from the universe is, that if I can't have things I want due to some adversity - or my No Buy - they will come to me if I am patient. After all, one of my favorite ABBA songs is I've Been Waiting for You. 
    • I've finished my Yves Rocher Sensitive Vegetal mini cream, and I have moved on to a mini glass bottle of The Ghost Oil from Poetic Blend (October 2017 Petit Vour box). One of the great things about the No Buy/Project Use It Up is that it has freed me from my compulsive decluttering. Compulsive decluttering is a real thing that is recognized as a mental health issue. It is a compulsive need to get rid of things and throw things away, in an excessive manner. This is an attempt to control anxiety and other emotions. So many beautiful cosmetics ended up in my garbage pail, not old, well used things, but pretty things I loved and wanted. The compulsive decluttering arose from two primary emotional states, as far as I can tell. The first was unhappiness with my face and hair and appearance. I would try a product once or twice, then look in the mirror and feel disappointed. I felt I did not look any better. So I would throw away the pretty new items and go and look for something else. Now, I never look in the mirror and pick on myself. Instead, I look at my little jars and bottles and see how close they are to being used up. That is the goal now. It has taken the pressure off of using them and looking for a certain result on my face. Once an item is fully used, I know I have done the best I could with my looks, and that is all I can do. And I enjoy the pretty items. If I do see my face and think it looks bad, I just kindly tell myself I am tired from stress or work. In the past, I never gave the pretty lotions and makeup a chance. It takes time for lotions to work, and experimentation to learn to apply a particular makeup product to one's specific facial structure.  The second emotion that drove my compulsive decluttering was anxiety about money, about spending, frustration with wanting more than I could afford. I wanted to control all that, and I felt that by getting rid of the things I could make the anxiety and want go away. I would feel better for a bit after throwing things out, but it never solved my problems. I would go out and buy more the next day. Instead, now I use up all my things up instead of buying new, and I have the anxiety, guilt, and compulsive shopping under control. I threw away so many pretty things, and I regret it so much. I wasted things and money, and hurt myself really badly. I could have enjoyed so much more, saved so much money, been so much happier. The last time I decluttered was in 2017, before I began this No Buy, and it means so much to me.  **I should clarify that the cosmetics thrown away were new, expensive, and nice. I'm not talking about throwing away old, expired, broken things, or things I was allergic to. And it was not just a matter of a few things; it was just about all my things, for years and years, decades. I would buy nice things, use them one or twice, throw them away, and buy more. I hurt myself so much. I am so glad this is gone now.
