1st off, thanks to everyone who helped me out with BitTorrent and the various media players, codecs, etc - you know who you are.
Something has been bothering me about BitTorrent (actually I use uTorrent), and basically its the speed and lack of material that I’m looking for.
I remembered somebody had mentioned something about megaupload being better and to google it, so I did. Sure enough, I immediately found some links and the downloads were fast. Great!
And then I discovered the holy grail, which is a website where people directly post links to what they’ve uploaded to megaupload, rapidshare, etc.
In fact, this had been mentioned on my bittorrent thread by rsg. BUT, when I first started searching for these sites, I found 99% of them are run by self-inflated pricks who don’t give out invites (and snicker “Find an invite and we’ll let you in”) or who tell you to register next week and then still don’t give you an account.
It was only through looking for megaupload links weeks later that I actually found a good site.
So I’ve gone from Limewire to uTorrent to websites that link to megaupload et al. I find more material and download it faster than ever before. Nice…
The next frontier supposedly is Usenet, as mentioned by some.
Good looking figuring that out.
Every FAQ is more confusing than the last, so for now I’ll leave it to the hardcore warrior nerds ( at least until megaupload and the rest disappear …)
