SSL comes with an extra 10 connections, I find my connection (about 6Mbit by the time all is said and done) is usually maxed out via the US servers when I am in Europe from about 4-6 connections though.

SSL is good if you have an ISP that does the "traffic shaping"/port blocking bit (not sure how many do it in Canada these days however) as SSL traffic can be anything (and decrypting it is counted as a move against privacy (not to mention it is nigh on impossible)).

Privacy wise it is up to you, I am not aware of any cases offhand that peoples usenet has been used to do an IP lookup a la all the torrent stuff (primarily as it can not be used in that way).

Bell Sympatico is known for throttling and port blocking, I'll take the SSL I guess...

    The problem is that the kind of producer/director who would be willing to tackle the creepy psycho aspects of Silent Hill probably don't have enough money to pay the copyright and licensing.

    Not that the previous films were high budget but they were still costly enough to play it safe.
