Wait, wut?

Uhm yes, hubby really wanted one and acquired it. Don't ask, I didn't either. He sometimes gets good stuff for cheap from junkies Laughing
Then we got some disney game for our daughter, and Assassins Creed Brotherhood and Revelations for ourselves. Then I got Skyrim for my birthday.
I don't know when I'll be able to get my pc. We have other priorities and this was a quicker options.
I have to get used to the controller and our tv is too small but, on the other hand, playing a game from the comfort of a recliner has its advantages.

That is, Mr. Lady Eldi is. Ah you know how it goes, junk needs couple €'s, sells expensive stuff for €50 to get it. He often runs into these types during work and has experience with these people.
We got the games the regular way though, lol.

Me I'm not really that badass'. I would never come up with these things myself. Actually, if I didn't game at all, I would probably be an average housewife. Though I would never watch soaps Laughing

I've downloaded a very large amounts of things.

At first I didn't even use basic protocol encryption.

I do use it now but that's all.

Never so much as a warning and I live in the USA.

Smaller scale ISP companies tend to stay out of your business more unlike bigger companies like Comcast.

I use an ISP that is local to a certain part of the USA.

As long as you use basic encryption and don't give them a reason to actively look into your data you should be fine.

I once saw a chart on Wikipedia that had the ISPs that warn people the most. I believe Comcast was number one and Verizon was second or so.

I can't find the chart but you get the idea.

That really sucks! I have never had that happen to me before. I still get music to listen too as well. Not sure if you remember the early day's of Napster and AudioGalaxy? Anyways

There is another way also, download for about and hour then shut down Bittorrent or utorrent which ever you use. then start it up again 2-3 days later...This will make sure to keep you low on the radar, just don't abuse it. Do NOT ever try and download all EP and SP's in one single torrent or get highly anticipated popular games like COD or WOW they will nail you for sure... Usually there are things packed with the download that is pretty useless imo. NFO files txt documents. Which 98% of them only include where it was originally downloaded from and then all their info in another txt file.

If a game comes with Power ISO, DT included pass on it. You can get those from the makers websites, Now some txt docs will have some useful instructions, like I said 98% never does. say if it has a code for Sims 2 or 3 you can go online and find them relatively easy. Well hope things work out for you!

I'd like to let you guys know that last year, I had the same problem. I was a customer of Comcast, and I had just downloaded Master Suite Stuff. I was scared to death, and I didn't pirate anything for a while. After I moved and got a new internet provider, I did some research, and realized that I wasn't really in that much trouble.

At first, I thought it was because I downloaded Master Suite Stuff incredibly soon after it was released, but then I downloaded Seasons (with the new internet provider) and I didn't get any letter (because I don't have Comcast anymore).

If it's one thing I like about this country (East Europe) is that the internet here is the purest example of democracy and anti- as well as pro-capitalism you're gonna find anywhere on the globe. (if we can call democracy "pure", pure bullshit sometimes but w/e) None of our providers give a damn whether you pirated the entire Hannah Montana collection or have e-mails from Bin Laden (r.i.p.) on your PC. Companies have complained, RDS just couldn't find f*cks to give. That's probably because they are about as legal as the stuff we pirate but there you have it...

Anyway providers are allowed to monitor their users in our so called democratic countries, and you can be damn sure that there's good $$$ coming in for them from the software companies to do so. But I don't think it's illegal to restrict them from poking their noses too much and removing or modifying files on your computer. I wouldn't know about that though since I never needed to...

It's generally a good idea to read the contract and the terms of agreement before signing with the provider though.

Interesting... I've had Comcast for about 6 months and have downloaded about 100GB of stuff in that time frame. I just make sure not to seed anything, may it be true or not, the ISP can track your IP from seeding. Better safe.

Hello there,

That's not really appreciated by the torrenting community. It's what we call "Leeching": downloading a file, without sharing it.
Without people sharing a file, a torrent will die eventually. Torrenting depends on people seeding (sharing).
