casek: I don't think the feds can do shit about bittorrent other then go after the sites. I'm pretty sure it's impossible to see who's downloading.

 

 

my friend almost got busted. i think some movie production company contacted his isp and his isp told him to stop.

shit happens and it's getting worse since this new bill passed.

 

someone mentioned it on page 1, it's very true. take precautions.

'friend of mine uses only registration sites, so that would lower the odds a lot of him getting caught, no?

well, depends. sites can log ip's. feds can bust sites, ip records can be confiscated.

 

just use peerguardian and don't go after new shit unless you have a good idea that you are safe.

 

i.e.: peerguardian.

Just installed peerguardian.

 

What is 'block HTTP' and do you recommend I have it turned on? And does peerguardian slow down your connection speed noticeably?

ilysister: find the tracker...there's a thing in shareaza where you can add trackers...

 

PMB: nah, it won't slow things down too much. turn that block http off. i do. and no, it won't slow your interweb down at all. just keep sthe bad people out.

After reading through this thread I decided to give this torrent thing a whirl.. Unfortunatley it seems whenever I get to around 99% it finds it hard to download the last couple of percent.

 

What does it mean when the source status is 'Uninterested'?

 

I'm using Shareaza 2.1.00

 

I've got less then a Mb on a few files that I've speant 2 days downloading and it wont budge :|

i had that happen to me on a movie a few days ago. finally gave up and cancelled.

 

i think 'uninterested' means that they got to the percent you ahve and can't go any further (just like you)

 

torrents, when they work, are the shit....

I Dont think anything in the world can be more annoying then getting to 99.80% and then it stopping.

i'd just wait on it and see if it completes sooner or later.

 

could be seeders with complete downloads.

I am downloading a movie right now, I am getting crap speeds.

It says I'm downloading at 3kb/s and I am uploading at 6kb/s.

 

What am I uploading?

 

 

parts of the torrent you are downloading. that's how they work. people upload and downlaod different parts of the same file...pretty cool, huh?
