    Interesting facts. I haven't use a torrent in years.... Horrible things [​IMG]

    Heroes doesn't deserve the top spot though! [​IMG]

    Surely the names of the various torrent sites littered throughout that post should be removed?

    That was quite an interesting read. I never would have thought Heroes was that popular [​IMG]

    Season 1 was good. The following 4 seasons sucked. Terrible writing.

    i guess i can understand house as there are still massive no. of users downloading every episode on torrent
    i have also seen starcraft having many users who are seeding it and infact although it is 7gb+, the seeders are greater than the leechers

    I'm pretty sure that the "Buccaneer Harbour" needs to be edited out

    I would have thought MAME would have the most files but MAME is like 3 or 4 torrents to get it "all"...

    That and like 180GB's of free hard drive space lol

    ...

    And what would you suggest?

    Direct downloads are almost always broken into separate parts and uploaded to lame upload sites. They're also hard to find and can time out easily often with no way of recovering your progress in the download.

    Lime/Frostwire? Hahaha, fail.

    eMule? Obsolete by now.

    XDCC file transfers over IRC? I use these. They're great, I get all my TV shows from on certain network. But they don't have everything.


    Am I missing anything?

    A torrent site that I frequent has torrents with file sizes in the terabytes. This article isn't comprehensive.

    *Breathes Deeply* Ahhhh...Shareza, how you kept me at my mother's shop downloading p0rn and p0rn. I have been downloading from AOL games to torrents. Yes, it even amazes me how we can share from each other w/o being denied. I saw Cowboy Bebop: The Movie on a torrent file, I saw all the episodes of Love Hina, Love Hina Again, and Chobits from Bearshare. Then hentai from La Blue Girl. Yes! I can see it now all those wonderous moments. Right now, torrents are getting bigger and more compressed as seeders/leachers RACING to go download it only to find viruses invading their PC's.

    Bejeweled 2 was like muffins and pancakes made a baby. It was very addicting...

    Direct downloads can definitely be a hassle when split into separate sections, but they have a more stable download rate than torrents. I never bothered with Limewire, was just a complete failure of a download service in my opinion. eMule (e2dk) is actually still a common way of file distribution in China, and other parts of Asia. Some Chinese sites that host pirated games and movies often upload them so they can only be downloaded using eMule.

    I prefer XDCC but since the disbanding of the biggest XDCC searchsites I cant be assed to look for any good sites (packetnews and ircspy RIP [​IMG] )

    Torrents also are ,ore abundant and you can find what your looking for easier.

    But the old style p2p like LImeWire (which is no long there anyway) and KaZaa are stupid -_-

    But still private FTP from a uni 100/100mbit line is still the best ;D
