newb question, torrents
« on: 15 Aug 2006, 23:16 »

as a college student making just a hair over minimum wage, most of my money goes towards survival and the occasional show; it's not always easy or economical to buy albums new and old from all of the bands that i like.  jeph is always mentioning torrents in his updates, so i decided to get azureus, and now my question is, what are some good sites for getting torrents?  i can never seem to find what i want, and have spent a bit of next months rent on itunes... i apologize in advance if there is already a discussion on this, i searched but couldn't find anything comprehensive.  my wallet, and eardrums, thank you in advance.

I was actually wondering the smae thing.  I'm typically able to find what I want but it seems more difficult than it should be.

Now if I were a bad person I would tell you that Torrent Spy, ISO Hunt, and The Pirate's Bay are good places to find collections of torrents. If I were a bad person I would tell you that your google homepage can have a little thing added to it that can search any one of these.

But I'm not a bad person, now am I?

STFU, NOOB

Actually, torrentspy, torrent reactor et al are decent, but the good stuff is on the invite-only sites (no leachers, better quality). This might be a good place to try for an invite, but it's old and might have gone off-topic. I have a demonoid I never use, so I'll see if I have an invite later.

Now that we're talking about torrents again I sort of have a backlog of #indietorrent invites. If anyone who can keep a decent ratio and actively contributes to the forums wants one, just ask.

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.
