Your laziness is not the problem...

...you came to the forum of the self-righteous...

maybe bring your question elsewhere. There are better places for yuo.
These people are Americans. Don't expect anything meaningful or... uh... normalcy...

19 minutes.. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Either way, yes you are lazy. Google is the best torrent finder and torrents are the best way to get movies.

Go to Google and find your torrent. You can do it!

The best way to get movies is to get that hot chick you've been checking out for the last couple of hours to bring the rental over with her for you to watch while she cooks dinner for you.

Been inclined to wander... off the beaten track.
That's where there's thunder... and the wind shouts back.

It's so nice to see how women enjoy themselves while making one feel good.

You should go out and buy yourself the Aliens Quadrilogy. It's awesome.

I have the original one (with the cool silver Alien on the black box) and the new one with additional Behind the Scenes.

Try Bittorrent first. It's the best for movies and TV shows.

Bittorrent - use the search option at www.isohunt.com (download with Tomato Torrent or Bits on Wheels or Azureus or Transmission)

To access the Gnutella (Limewire) network, use:
Cabos
acqlite
Acquisition

For OpenFT, FastTrack, and Gnutella:
Poisoned

For the eDonkey network (lots of files, but you need to be patient):
aMule
XDonkey

Others to try:
Wired (you need to find the servers yourself via trackers)
KDX (ditto)
Carracho (ditto)
SolarSeek (for the SoulSeek P2P network)

Even at the risk of pissing some people off (I really have no other way of finding this out) - a buddy of mine uses the IRC (mIRC on a Windows box) to do P2P filesharing.

He said that you needed a bunch of scripts and fine tune things here and there, but that it worked really well for him.

I've looked at several IRC clients for the mac, but none of them seem to have the ability to do filebrowsing.

Anybody know which app might be able to do the same things as mIRC on the PC?

If I change my way of living, and if I pave my streets with good times, will the mountain keep on giving…

This is not a forum of the self-righteous. This is a forum of doing things legally. Because this forum does not want to put itself in harm's way by allowing discussions of illegal activities.
