~Been around since the 80's
~Vast amount of information (music, tv shows, movies, programs, pictures, applications, etc)
~Safer then anything else out there
~99% of usenet isp's don't even keep a log or record of you or what you downloaded
~only one person ever has been warned for using usenet (and it wasn't from the mpaa or riaa)
~extremely fast burstable speeds no matter what.
~I've never gotten 10mbps using any torrent service. 10+ is cake w/ usenet (given you have that sort of connection)
~a lot of them give you a free email service also :-P

Yeh but you have to have access to a usenet server, and I beleive most services charge; hefty charges at that.

Also, are we talking about using usenet to snag torrents (which this thread is about in the first place) or are you attempting to "sway" us away from using torrents (in which case this doesn't belong in this thread)

When you've just lost your job and you're supporting a family anything is "hefty" but I've seen as much as $60.

Also, if this isn't torrent related then it doesn't belong here in the first place; this thread is for torrent information only... May it be for Clients or Servers...

I'm playing with a PHP/MySQL torrent client right now (also uses python for more advanced features), its open source and called TorrentFlux

for the site, i like btjunkie a lot. pretty much anything i'm looking for i can find there. but...other sites i like are torrentspy and piratebay. as for a client. i've only used a couple, but uTorrent is awesome. but it's only for windows. i haven't looked too hard for a linux one, but when i find a nice one, i'll post it.//

On linux I use TorrentFlux, it's a web based manager for the BitTornado client.

As for servers, lately I've been using ISOHunt a lot more often...

I still miss Suprnova and TVTorrents though

Vuze. I only just realised it uses tor. Is tor still a thing?

@Giz, you posted itt a year after an older post, hope you don't mind me posting in it after a 4 year period.
On that, why is 'bumping' old threads this way looked down upon?
