The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Azureus is probably the best rated torrent program. It has anonymous trackers, so it's a bit safer to use.

    It also has some useful plugins.

    People wonder why I call myself Mr. T. One dude asked, 'does the T stand for tough?' I said no. Another dude asked if the T stands for my last name, Tureaud. No it does not. The 'T' in Mr. T stands for tuna. T loves tuna.

    Shareaza is a good all-around p2p client as it pulls from 3 or 4 different networks, including torrents. But for sole bittorrent usage, azureus, hands down.

    I use Azureus for my torrent client, isohunt.com and torrentspy.com for the torrents.

    On occasion I will use IRC or AutoXDCC from ircspy.com

    Mostly though, I have a friend "on the inside" who can get me about everything I could want, from books to video games.

    "The inside" no longer exists, since the invention of p2p and BitTorrenting, it no longers any skillzzz or connection to get something... It's actually quite sad how easy people have it now days...

    Well, I understand what you are saying, but he can get most albums, movies, etc, before they hit torrent, IRC, and p2p sites. Most of the times 2 weeks before they hit them.

    Yah, I used to be part of a 0-day ftp group. Really, I've seen some movies, most albums, etc. hit torrents weeks early as well. Lots of people who get stuff early will upload to torrent sites...just gotta find the torrent site they choose to upload to.

    Anyway, I, personally, use demonoid.com for torrents.

    Wow this torrent system is pretty neat. The only problem is that the download speed seems to be limited to your upload speed, and my upload is only 384k. Sigh, it's going to take awhile to download this 38GB collection of every simpsons episode ever made

    Azureus for torrents

    aMule (Linux port of eMule) for everything else

    Ares for common stuff like songs and video clips, and popular software like MS Office

    emule for rarer things such as engineering apps, they also have all the family guy episodes from a season in a single download

    Ares is faster but emule has a much larger selection of files.

    Can someone explain to me how bittorrent works?

    not really.

    most isps block the standard ports that the torrent programs use. use a different port.

    (and update the firewall if you use one)

    you're a champ bro I just quadrupled previous speeds

    ______________________________________________

    So I go into Bit Comet to change the port and I'm thinking I don't know what port to change it to, so I'll have to just try a random number

    Low and behold Bit Comet has a "Choose Random Port" button for newbies like me

    how sweet it is...
