Okay, to start, I would like to get my torrenting going on again after having stopped for several years. I mostly stopped as I was no longer living with my parents (I had a service with a dynamic IP then) and became slightly paranoid about potentially screwing others over. Then when I got to school, I had to be really careful, as getting caught pirating on the network was grounds for losing internet access completely. At that point, I certainly valued my internet access over some free 1080p TV shows and movies. These days, I live with some roommates, and as I don't own the internet access or even a majority share of the bill, that means I still need to be careful so that I don't end up being the cause of receiving a notice (I just don't trust Comcast). Reading around, I found information on two things: - VPNs - Seedboxes Based on what I saw, a reliable VPN from the likes of PIA would likely be the best option for making sure a lovely notice doesn't arrive that says "stop torrenting". I just don't know if a VPN would actually work worth a damn, or if I should just throw in the towel on torrents and find a decent newsgroup instead. Any advice? And yes, I know I'm probably being overly paranoid and you can likely regale me with tales of all the torrenting you've done with nary a notice to be seen, but I would rather err on the side of caution until the day I'm paying my own internet bill.
