Hey, anyone here use bittorrents?

Our dc++ hub just got shutdown by the university (assholes) and im trying to find an alternate method. Ive talked to a lot of people and they recommended it, but no ones really seems to know how to use it or where to start.

Any advice?

A friend of mine downloads constantly from a bittorrent, I think its called Supernova, I haven't tried it yet, because I haven't had time to try and set it up. Best I can do for you for now.

I tried to do that but it was way way way too confusing. I just stick to the free MP3 sites. It works well enough.

What you do is google bit torrent and download it from the site.
Then you install it (Theres no GUI so don't bother looking)
Then goto suprnova.org ORG! DAMNIT! then click search, and search for your movies, albums apps, and games. Usually the ones with the highest numbers or seeds and dloaders are fastest.
Suprnova is pretty consistant but occasionally and error will popup talking about how somethings wrong with the tracker. Just click another download.

litezone.com has some links to some other pretty consistant sites.

Uh, why not? BitTornado is a better, faster client. The original is plagued with bugs that Shad0w fixed in BitTornado. It's a lot faster, and doesn't allow leechers to an extent. Normally, second source programs are better than the original because someone saw problems with the original, and took the initiative to fix them.

Correct you are. Almost all (and there's a lot of them) of the Bittorrent revisions are better than the original. BitTornado is ok; personally I prefer Bittorrent experimental.

Anyone using Shareaza for torrents shouldn't be allowed to use the internet. Actually, anyone using Shareaza shouldn't be allowed to own a computer.

BZ - I may try and get you on AIM later tonight if you're on and make sure you've got everything working. I know some good content-specific resources to pull torrents from.
