F***. I feel like torrenting is going down the s****** real fast.
What's going on...
instead of inside sources supplying to scene groups who supply p2p, there are hackers trying on extortion for withholding a season of a TV show, that aren't being paid but which bring the attention of law enforcement...
my torrent solution is still going strong as ever.
The problem with Torrents going, is that they are useful for the little hard to find things.
I mean everyone should have a VPN by now especially if you are torrenting, so if it's TV you're after then you can just stream it directly from a legit US site. Most movies find their way onto Netflix a month after the Bluray rips are out and there is at least a dozen music streaming site which have decent free streaming options.
But if you want to get a copy of some old Linux distribution you remember seeing as a kid or an open source software library that is no longer supported and isn't on Netflix then torrent sites are usually the best option.
I still use torrents and will continue to do so until I am not able to or something better comes along. I can still find torrents for old games and for obscure movies and what-not.
