Default do ppl still use torrent sites to download stuff?

I always did, but there aren't many possibilities anymore, it seems. there are these sketchy Pirate Bay proxy sites, but they seem to be down a lot of the time. anyone know a better alternative?

we have Netflix, but not everything is on Netflix, and I'm a cheapskate.

internet, whatever happened to you?

the bay proxy i've been using has been pretty reliable - more so than the actual TPB ever was, tbh

haven't checked to see if apollo ever got back up & running but I can PM you the prox link

If the Bay is down, I might check rarbg.to next.

Just if I'm in the mood to conduct research on behalf of WPC and the FBI, I mean.

I'm on what.cd but I don't have any invites unfortunately. I think you may need to have a good ratio for that and mine is below .5

Yeah I used to be a member of What.cd but I didn't use it for over 3 months and they freeze your account and I never bothered to appeal it. It's hard to keep your ratio up there.

Also, when people say what.cd are they referring to redacted.ch or something else entirely?

uh yes, it's redacted. I don't even remember if that is what used to be what.cd or that it's something different, but I used to be on what.cd

i don't even really pirate movies anymore. i sometimes check on hpn if they have a new movie i'm interested in, in the dropbox.

music, i still use newalbumreleases and slsk because i'm old.

e-books, i use either the hpn thread or lib.gen

i pirate movies when i absolutely have to, honestly now that I think about it that and occasionally tv show episodes (Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9 comes to mind) are essentially all I use torrent for anymore

& i coulda sworn what.cd was shut down at least a year ago - Apollo was a pretty good alternative but it looks like that one may be gone now as well

I did a lot of torrenting, especially music, until I moved back in with my parents, where my set up wasn't really feasible. I had a separate computer which I used as a torrent box and a media server. Now I've moved out again and I've just taken the media storage drive out of that computer and put it in my main one. I can't be bothered setting it up again because probably the day I set it up, I'll move out of this homely shit hole and have to pack it all down again.

RED, PTP and BTN are the main trackers I use... or used. I got on BTN and 99% of the shit I downloaded was by the request of my now ex-girlfriend. I rarely watch any TV shows to justify even using it any more. My flatmates have Netflix so if I have anyone over, it's far more convenient to just throw some non-obscure shit on there.

I'm on a couple others which are a little more niche, like Zomb, Dime a Dozen, Shellife, and ruTracker, which is a reasonably decent general tracker, but unless you know Russian, you have to use Chrome's in-built page translation feature.

I'm just too lazy to learn how to torrent and it feels like it's too late to try. Kind of like swimming or driving shift.
