    I wont post the links but there are a couple of sites that I usually look at to see what games are out but at the moment neither are loading....

    Anyone else finding this? As I said I wont get into specific names but both are quite high profile sites.

    Does anyone know what is happening here? Very curious indeed.

    First of all who cares if you cant go to youre crap rom sites? They are probably having server problems and will be back later. Second dont double post, it makes you look like a newb. Third if you type "nds roms" into google, wether its canadian or not, will get you more website to download from.

    It's still all good. I can work around the issue (I too have numerous other sources but normally have two main ones). I just thought it was curious that two quite separate sites were down at the same time. Thought maybe the big N had come down with a hammer blow.

    THE thing is, I don't trust rom sites, many of them are pretty shady, even for PIRATEs.
    I prefer bittorrent, it seems to keep the shady sites at BAY, and you get them pretty fast, especially if you look for well seeded popular torrents.

    Not really... NDS ROMs are between 8Mb and 256Mb and I've rarely come across torrents that are well seeded for more than a few months - meaning older games are often hard as hell to get a hold of via torrents. Which is why I prefer the only source I bother with, the one Anandjones is a part of, since it's very much awesome in terms of speed and availability.
