downloading spree  
Okay, remember how I was so excited about getting broadband the other night? And how we have a download limit, and Dad's limited me to 2gig (well, it's 2gig during the day, 2 at night)? Well I've just checked our invoices/account status, and it's by calendar month, which means that as of Friday (July 1), we start afresh with the whole download limit thing.

So anyway, I have 6 days to chew through around 19 gig of downloads.

Right. So where's the best place to download tv episodes from?

*squees*

oh. i meant to ask you if you have tori's "acoustic tales"? i stumbled upon it online (of course i can't remember where); it's all the same tracks as scarlet's walk, but different versions. apparently it was an import or something. i swearrrr i'm going to write you a letter this weekend, and i'd be more than happy to send you a copy of acoustic tales if you don't already have it.

i DO have it! I actually just posted it online at album_love; I'm so glad you mentioned it, because no-one seems to have ever heard of it before! I couldn't even find it on amazon, and I was started to worry about what I'd found! I got it at a market in Cambridge.

Thankyuou anyway darling!

Wow! *yay* on getting broadband. You will not believe how fast your 2gb will go every month. I've got 12 gb and 24gb between 2-8am (or something) a month, and I find myself going through a a couple of gig really easily. A song here, a song there and an album here actually really adds up. *hides* Although, I never get near my off peak limit (I have a theory that they limit the speed... I've known a torrent to be going at some insane speed and then I can get up in the middle of the night and the same torrent is now lucky if it's going a 5k/s (or whatever it is).

Anyway, pointless rambling aside.
A lot of the good tv torrent places have shut down recently but...
mininova.org has some... generally single eps, but ocassionaly an entire season will appear

http://www.torrentreactor.net

http://torrentspy.com - is a torrent search engine. I've picked up a few things that I've wanted by doing searches on there.

Filelist.org I haven't really used this one, and you have to sign up; but it does have tv shows. :)

And that would be all the tv show related torrent sites in my bookmarks it appears.

I see what you mean. I just did a search on one of the sites, and to download a full season is like 9gig. Oh well, I think I'll stick to music downloads (I never watch much TV anyway, and the only thing I could really think to search for was Dawson's Creek episodes, hehe).

Thankyou so much for the links though -- I shall bookmark them... just in case we ever get more bandwidth ;)

I like Torrent Channel for downloading television episodes. I am still upset over the closure of the best BitTorrent sites. Sigh.
