    I wanted to know how you do it, so I made this.
    I'm not saying where, so I'm doing nothing wrong... I think
    I prefer the magic torrents

    Sinkhead Edit: By request of the author I added more options. I also removed all posts saying things like 'you should add x as a choice'

    I too am a fan of direct download. Simple, quick, no hassle. However, when you want a new release as quick as possible, IRC is the best option.

    You download roms? Shame on you [​IMG]


    IRC, definately.
    They're released there first, and the downloads are quicker (usually)

    FTPs here, speeds of 500kb/s+ are always delicious and they're fast on releases too.

    Well, I know of nearly a dozen sites to directly download from, so that's the fastest way for me, but I don't rule out P2P. Torrents.....well, I don't really use that, but I have used them in the past if I need to.

    One of the ways I NEVER explored is IRC methods (I guess that would be classified as "other" in this poll). I never used IRC in my life.....and I'm nearly 40.
