This sucks, I deleted the movie like 2 weeks ago and today they decide to give me a notice to delte it. "or else." Basically I think everyone should know NEVER to sign up for an email that your ISP offers for free, and don't use BT++. Also uninstall Steam because it searches your computer for anything with a media extension and sends the info out.

Goddamn BayTSP. The movie companies still make tons more money than we ever would, and more than a musician would. What's been up their asses lately?

If you read the EULA for software it gives permission for backups and archives too

DONT USE PUBLIC TRACKERS!!!!

If you want to download movies or other naughty things via bittorent, dont use public trackers (such as suprnova, etc) as obtaining an ip is as simple as opening torrentspy or azureus.

Also, check out things like DCC, as although bittorrent is one of the best protocols to be made in a long time, it was never designed to allow people to remain anonymous.

Also, to this date no one has had any sort of charges against them for being caught downloading things via bittorent (or any other sort of filesharing)


C++ Should Have Been Called "D"

I dont like that DCC one because most channels or require a VAST amount of shit to enter it.

Some channels require 90G + to be able to enter
Some require 70G +. Sorta sucks = (

fuck a whole bunch of this big company on 1 person bullshit. how would they like it if all the one persons out there start getting all up on their nuts? heh I wouldn't be so stupid as to say what the easy ways are, that could be done for them to lose alot of fuckin money. but smart people already know them. they are oblivious to who the fuck their fucking with. mpaa, the actor's guild, wtf ever the main music company/lawyer's collection are for mp3 shit. I don't care about having my words correct. But it's obvious to see that anyone would rather go eat some food, and fuck then worry about these rich poor excuses for human garbage trying to scare us. It's as easy as them pissing off enough people. Then their really going to see what the fuck is up in the house of atreides:) Fuckin warring idiots that have no idea what socialing, Internet connectivity, exploitation of many flawed systems, lieing, cheating, and real stealing can do.

They've just tapped the top of the keg. O, and a mother fucking happy new years to all of ugn!;p~
