Oh well, it's to be expected. Content of all kind is becoming harder and harder to find and download these days. With the internet comes freedom of information, but also more limitations every day.

Piratebay has always had good content, but I find their UI to be lacking. MiniNova was always my favorite, ever since SuperNova died. Lately, I've been using IsoHunt here and there. Guess they'll be my new standard.

Still, a sad day...

Torrent Search - ScrapeTorrent.com is my favorite aggregater.

Torrent sites come and go. Usenet OTOH is better than its ever been. Totally safe downloads through a SSL connection. No wait time for fast downloads. Will saturate your total d/l speed the moment you say go until the moment the transfer is complete. Will cost you $15/month but thats a small price to pay for superior delivery and protection.

Didn't Piratebay also have trouble recently as well? Seems like I read that somewhere. I haven't downloaded using torrents in probably 6 months. I have found all I can find that I want in the music world and have nothing really left.

Piratebay has had trouble many times in the past. Kinda shocked that mininova went first.

I use torrentz.com and have for years for my general torrenting. Otherwise I use hd-torrents.

That's what happens when these companies get too big, they either are shut down or changed for the worse. Remember Napster?

Huh.

Honestly, I don't think I've used Usenet since '99 when I graduated college. That was the last shell account I ever had- since then everything has been TCP/IP only, and I'm sure I've never run it as a local client.

Didn't even realize the Usenet scene was still alive!

Really? I' hadn't seen anything about it on their page. Normally they're pretty good about letting you know when the sever is going to be moving to a different country.

Yeah, back in the very beginning Napster was the ****. A HUGE step up from FTP sites. I'm sure a few of you remember ratio sites well.

Usenet is where everything hits first. It goes Usenet>IRC>Torrents and peer to peer networks. The alt.binaries store petabytes of information if you have a service with enough retention.

warez-bb and a rapidshare account split between a few people does me good. Fast and very easy to use.

Uh-oh. My favorite torrent site: http://isohunt.com/

"IsoHunt sues CRIA in self defense, Round 2
Posted by IH on Nov. 27

I already wrote a fair bit about our legal struggle with CRIA, so I'm not repeating them here again. Since CRIA's initial cease and desist letters (effectively asking us to shutdown entirely), we have tried to reason with CRIA, have petitioned the court on our legal right to exist as a search engine. Both to no avail, since Judge Curtis has denied our "petition" as improper form, and have ordered us to a normal, lengthy and costly legal "action". We have done that this week.

Here's our Statement of Claim (pdf) we just filed for our action at the BC Supreme Court.

As I've written to the Canadian government in the public consultation for upcoming copyright reform, I have high hopes for Canadian copyright laws and its courts to not make the mistakes that have been made elsewhere in the world. We must fight the increasing noise we are drowned in, that file sharing is stealing. I believe we Canadians are especially blessed with musical talent such as Sarah McLachlan, Celine Dion, Nelly Furtado, Lights and many others. So many that our "cultural output" per capita is arguably greater than that of many other countries. And we have done this without the excessive litigation against consumers that the legal climate in countries like our southern neighbor has encouraged. Thanks in part to our lack of DMCA-like copyright laws that does more harm than good.

With continued changes in both the digital marketplace and usage of P2P search engines like isoHunt, I believe now is a better time than ever to put our differences aside with copyright owners, and figure out how we can utilize P2P distribution and social media for the benefit of all. The internet has widened our choice in music more than ever before, and the music industry is live and well contrary to lies of certain lobbyists. The EU have also commissioned a study that found, P2P is not to blame for failures of certain parts of content industries. Why? How? Because P2P is the greatest radio ever...
