Dear God after all this time Carpe still can't make a proper poll. :laugh:

I mainly use torrents these days.

Torrents get auto downloaded, renamed and moved to a NAS. Then I use a Raspberry PI with openelec (kodi) to create a nice library. I suppose one nice thing is you can get 'addons' so you can get livetv or a bigger library if one wanted to (stream quality tends to leave a lot to be desired though), or pay for an IPTV service.

I have been using ed2k only since i started with filesharing about 12years o so (except for a brief period of about 2 months then i also used dc).
And i will continue to use ed2k only because in my opinion its far better then torrents. But i can definitely see why some people prefer torrents.

I'm not online much any more, but when I am I still ed2k it. :hippy:
Lol, no surprise, ehh?

I direct download somethings, mostly old games, occasionally will use torrent.

When I have time, my favorite alternative method is to track back torrent ip's to find open servers. :whistle:
Then I just pick through what they have, uhm, "available" and direct download what I want. :dunno: :lol1:

Not exactly kosher of me, but ya got to get your jollies some how, and thieving from thieves just plain tickles my funny bone. :no: :lol1:
Boycott the Boycotters!!!
