Gizmodo: "With the Pirate Bay set to close in the next few days, one anonymous user has put together a single massive archive of all 873,671 torrent files hosted on its servers."
21.3 GB worth of tiny .torrent files. Holy crap.
I hope that 20 spring up in its place.
lol bubbles for the most epic and appropriate quote i've ever heard
gonna start my dl once i get off work haha
Better copy the comments down too or else you'll be getting 873,671 Trojans...
So where is everyone going for their .torrents now? Any suggestions?
Demonoid or mininova are two good sites.
Closing Pirate Bay wouldn't even have an impact. Big name torrent sites have been closing for years. As said, mininova and Demonoid are usually reliable, but there's many more.
@ steve30x You are correct. Demonoid is 1000x better than Pirate Bay. Now I just need someone to send me a Demonoid invite. Anyone willing to send me one?
are the ones I use most. But I'm kind of new to this whole thing. I also use Vuse to handle all my torrents. Any recommendations?
I've always found Mininova to be a lot better than Pirate Bay, imo Pirate Bay was just another avg site.
i for one will miss TPB. i have a demonoid account but sometimes cant find things on it. TPB has everything from trojans to legit files. i hope it springs back up. Demonoid went down for a month or two then did some legal things and were back online. i hope TPB does the same
scrapetorrent is something i usually the one i use. it compiles a bunch of torrent sites. that or isohunt is what i use, but scrapetorrent is a bit more reliable for me.
Demonoid is about the best there is...unless you're looking for porn. I've enjoyed it for a LONG time now, and eveything is typically pretty clean. They occasionally hand out memberships so you don't need a refferal, so just keep an eye on the site...but snag it quick.
Demonoid is great for movies and stuff, but they don't do porn. I'm a member at PornBay too though, so whatever. Still sucks that PirateBay is closing. I'm nervous about using it under new ownership, even if it stays nearly identical to the old one, probably gonna avoid it. If you can't get into Demonoid, isoHunt is a good free alternative for movies. Dunno how it fares for music, never tried.
I signed up for astraweb usenet servers. 3 months for $39. small price to pay for the amount of stuff and download speed.
Does this include all of the viruses and trojans?
Demonoid FTW, Always preferred it to TPB anyway :D
To all you guys saying Demonoid, LOLZ. Demonoid isn't even a private tracker.
still gets the job done.
It's not just trojans.... Odds are 60% or more of those files are duplicates. Anyway, I'll miss TPB. A lot of people don't realize that it wasn't just for pirates--I was able to find a lot of old versions of various freeware programs (and a few newer versions) that were all-but impossible to find on Google.
@zen_hydra Demonoid you do need an invite. They just need to let people register and then closing for a week or so.
btjunkie is by far the better option,
From what I understand they aren't closing. Some company bought their site and they're going to re-open it as some form of pay site. Basically the 'Napster' scenario all over again.... Sucks, I liked their forums....
Try using hd-bb.org for all HD movies and bayw.org for everything else. For a very small price via megashare or rapidshare you can download at 1.2 meg a second. So much better and almost 100% clean, please scan with virus scanner beore use!
Good luck downloading 21.3GB in a couple of days.
