First, for a little disclaimer. UGN Security does not condone the illegal downloading of software, movies, or music. Sharing copyrighted material is illegal and you should pay the "hard working" coders, film makers, and industry professionals for all of their "hard work".

Using torrents isn't always for "illegal" activities; such as, for instance, getting a backup for something that you legitly own (such as if your copy of window$ cd is cracked in half or if you're downloading a linux distribution via a torrent to help save on the bandwidth burden costs of the foundation. Please read the EULA which comes with your piece of software or the on recording warnings on a movie to ensure it allows backup copies (as you generally buy a key for most software I doubt they'd much care about the software portion).

Now, after that's all said and done; what torrent sites do you use? What kind of downloads do they specialize in?

Also, what is/are your favorite torrent client(s)?

Some useful off the bat torrents:
Gentoo Linux Torrents
Slackware Linux Torrents
Conectiva Linux Torrents
Long list of torrents of linux distributions at mybookmarkmanager

Also, this thread is EXEMPT from our Zombie Threads rule.

I used to use SuprNova religously but they went under due to some legal babble...

Currently I use
MiniNova - Generally movies/tv shows
The Pirate Bay - Movies, Music, TV Shows, Programs, just about anything.
TVTorrents - TV Shows (hey I own a bunch of boxed sets ok?)
TVTorrents - Differant organization than TVTorrents.ws but much of the same content.
ISOHunt - Everything
TorrentSearch - Everything
Torrent Reactor - Everything
Torrent Spy - Everything
AnimeSuki - Anime
2Torrents - Everything

As for clients, I used to use TorrenTopia but I had a load of "technical issues" (it kept erroring out on torrents I knew existed and had valid seeds) so I moved on to BitLord which hasn't given me any issues and works quite well on window$.

NOTE: - This list is no longer maintained on this post; please see the UGN Security File Sharing Page .

I like http://www.torrentspy.com alot too I use BitTorrent to actually share the files although I must admin it's actualy sharing capabilities are very limited. I also do not like the limited ability to control upload/download speed limits

BitLord gives more control in reguards to limitation (at least "overall upload speed" "overall upload per torrent speed" and "overall upload per user speed").

I've added 3 new torrent sites to the UGN Security File Sharing Page which automatically updates the status based on if the site can be contacted; updates as the page is loaded. Note that there is a 5second timeout, if the site cannot be connected within 5 seconds it default's to "offline".

~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...

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?
