there's only trash on limewire, never use it.
torrents for big stuff, soulseek for induvidual files or stuff you can't find with torrents.

I like using torrents too, you know what you get, especially if you have a good torrent site, I use iplay.ro and tv.torrents.ro, since they are romanian trackers I download everything at 4 ~ 6 megs per second. Unfortunately I use my laptop most of the time and through wireless I only get 2.2 megs, which is still nice.

They are multinational websites and send all messages in both romanian and english but they require invitations to register, if I ever get any I'll let you know.

On thepiratebay.org I only get high speeds if I catch a romanian seeding, otherwise I download stuff at 300 ~ 400 K / sec
Order, symmetry, discipline and balance.

glock, bitcomet? FUCK NO!
utorrent or azureus, bitcomet went crap a year ago.
these days they're still blocked by some trackers, and the behaviour of both some users and of the company behind it keep it so.

grave, priv trackers rule, but i'm too lazy to register for any, i just get a shitload of trackers and it works okay in the end.

You were just telling me a year ago fuck no to bitlord and to go with bittorrent. Make up your mind.

went crap a year ago.

basically, bitcomet was king for a while, then azureus became competition, bitcomet went bad, and a new client, utorrent, became popular.
azureus turned to vuze, has an everything and the kitchensink approach.
utorrent is all you need for torrents and nothing more.
bitcomet is filled with crap these days, if you have to use it, at least use version 0.7x or something.

edit:
and may i remind you that even back then i suggested utorrent above bitcomet? bitcomet is just more like bitlord, is all.

also, check the wiki on bitcomet, i'm not alone in this.

I usually use utorrent, had and like azerus (Vuze) (it has many features) but utor works just fine for your basic find/click/download needs.

I was recommended this link:
http://www.metrolyrics.com/upcoming-albums.html

for upcoming albums, new music, etc.. I've never used it though.

i still love records, i actually hung a few up for a while, their covers at least.

and tapes are fun, still play my mom's old stuff. the cure after eric clapton after michael jackson is funny.

krishh, try www.torrentz.com to search, works wonders.

and ares is shit, soulseek is MUCH better.

You're obviously confused by what coolness is, as your post clearly demonstrates.

clearly.

over here all the things i do start to be hypes two year later, so whenever i do it i'm an idiot, whenever they do it it's style.

usb drives disguised as anything is horribly uncool though.

ITS DISGUISED AS A DAMN MIXTAPE!

The only thing cooler than that would be like... an external HDD disguised as a small fighting robot. Which would probably not be that hard to make if you already had a small fighting robot.

you have a messed up idea for cool.
creating a small usb device that could read and write tapes, bunched with a supply of them would be cool.
this isn't.
