    It'd still be amusing to see him fight the system with all of his money available to him..

    this is what happens when you side with the united states, an think you can f##k with peoples rights. this kinda crap has been happening for years in the united states..
    the only difference my be,is at least they might have said they were wrong, were as the united states would have found some one to point the finger at.(like a two year old baby).

    I've moved on. Found other warez sites. Megaupload is dead to me. Even if it comes back.

    What pissed me off about the seizure was all the rare Oblivion mods that I planned to download went *poof* in an instant.

    Not to mention those of us (ahem, me) who had legit stuff on there.

    Just imagine, there's probably some poor guy out there that was running out of HDD space and put a bunch of family photos on MU to make room.

    Yep. Most of the stuff I used it for was actually legit stuff too.

    Well can't change things much now, alot of people found other sites to get their stuff and moved on.

    I never did.

    There are quite a few Sims mods I have tried to download, but they're so old and lesser known that the only links were to megaupload and it looks like the creators have gone missing where these things were posted.

    There were quite a few things permanently lost when Megaupload went down.

    What about on torrent sites?

    Can't disagree, alot of older things were lost when megaupload got shut down and its a shame when you just found out you need something and it only exists on megaupload.

    Nah. Not there either.

    It was really obscure stuff, like the kid from Cloud randomly flies over your Sim's house if it's raining and starts having the dark clouds and the light clouds battle, or actual anime episode synopsis videos and their own channel for your Sim's TV, or a new 'read manga' option for your Sim's computer that changed the screen to show a random manga page that changed every two in-game minutes. Among other anime/manga related things. Most of it was what Chell and Alessa wanted.

    Exactly. I had a lot of links to megaupload for things I had just in case I had to redownload anything.

    I wish I could help but don't have any links, sorry. Otherwise i'll uploaded it already.


    I found MU to be really good for downloading which is why I prefer it to other sites, the day it got shut down was a sad day.
