File Sharing????

what are you peoples using for your "file sharing".
I was using limewire for a while on my old pc but it started screwing up, then everytime I reinstalled it, it would just keep screwing up.

I think you will find the general answer will be torrents.

I gave up what little use I had for peer-to-peer applications a few years ago once I realized that all of the available applications were either crazy malicious with spyware and other such garbage, or were just plain awful pieces of software. Plus, all of the networks were corrupted to the point of uselessness. Meh.

I use the occasional torrent (btdownloadcurses for the simple!), but that's about it.

Get a torrent client and then find a torrent site.

I use uTorrent client and usually find what I'm looking for (all I get are the latest Doctor Who episodes) at www.isohunt.com.

File sharing? No, I don't do that. That's illegal!

KingTermite - Christmas! for the next one.

And I'm nearly done watching the fourth doctor episodes. I'm looking for the Torchwood series now.

Too bad gotta wait 'til Xmas now.

Torchwood series? You mean the last few episodes of season 2 or something else?

Nope, separate spin off series called Torchwood - about Captain Jack (he mentioned in the last episode about starting Torchwood up again.)

Oooooh.....will have to check that out. I had not heard that. The torrents just have the episodes and not the interviews after (and I usually don't bother to download them). I'll definitely be seeing what 'ol "Face of Bo" is up to.
