    The nice thing about private torrents is the fact that they have vast archives of early releases that are still seeded. Still if you've been keeping up with the scene then its not a big deal, but sites like BC still have their role [​IMG]

    Spell ti right, kid. Also, we all know you don't download one r two things. But you don't download that much in a month, to make it needed that you pay for it. Fact. Unless you were in jail for the past 30 years.

    ??????do forgive me for the mispelling. You should also check your spelling and your grammar. $14.99 is just fine the stuff I download daily. It only enhances the studio and parties that go on. Let's see, $14.99 for one dvd, or all the dvds you could ever want?

    i use usenet and have been for a few months now

    its really handy as i download every good movie (upto 4.7gb) and every good wii game (4.7gb) and also 360 games (upto 8gb) and also bits and bats like applications and pc games

    i moved from using torrents and was tired of waiting 2 days+ to download a game when i can download it in 3 hours

    i use newshosting unlimited which is about £7 ($15) a month and it maxes out my connection all the time

    usenet is the best thing to use imo but paid ftp's are also good but cost alot

    I don't pay a dime for usenet because it comes free with my ISP, as I've said in previous posts. And you can only get games from blackcats...Do you even know what blackcats is? I'm going to go search on there for you and see if you are even a member(edit: i just searched for hiratai on blackcats and there is no user with that name...hiratai = pwned)... And $19 a month for usenet is insane. It's about $10. Which is like 30 cents a day. Apparently you need to do some research.

    gamefly doesn't let you keep the games forever do they? And can you rent as many games as you want from them at a time? No....

    Also, are you capable of having a discussion without resorting to name calling?

    I use torrents. I tried using Usenet for a week, but I still prefer private tracker torrents.

    i use oprah's magic secret ™ and focus my energy (warning, may cause gas) and visualize a romz and send that to space and the next day Jesus delivers it while wearing a UPS outfit.

    That's exactly me too!!! [​IMG]

    Hiratai - obviously you have a strong opinion on this one. [​IMG] But different strokes for different folks. I find it great that I can pay for those services and be able to easily access almost any game/movie/pcis whenever I want. I completely understand the "free" is better attitude. But I have no need to keep up share ratio - I can download 300 GB in one month (which I do) and have no worries about sharing files.

    How did you not know that blackcats only has games then?

    If you have an account there then copy and paste the second news announcement on the front page from oct 31..

    For those that use usenet. Does ssl make it so my ISP can't track my bandwidth usage or what I'm downloading?

    I think bandwidth monitoring is based on physical activity on the line. I'm pretty sure there's no software way of hiding how much data you send/receive.

    Your ISP and Usenet provider do not usually monitor data transferred through usenet. If you are wary just use SSL anyway. My understanding is that they occassionally monitor how much data you transfer at different times but not what that data is.

    This differs from p2p where anyone can join your tracker (ie, copyright enforcement groups) and know that you are leeching (and simultaneously sharing in the case of p2p) infringing data.
