Now that the UK has forced its nation into a 1984 type of guilty until proven innocent, we need to keep ourselves safe. I understand that copying music/movies/software hurts people who create them. I also understand that dogs don’t eat where they poo. Most of the time the movies/tv I watch are disposable and i wouldn’t recommend them. Sometimes there’s a good one.
I’m not saying i pirate all the time. I’m a subscriber to LoveFilm. I buy music/movies/software from artists I am a fan of. For me, anything else is advertising to get me to become a fan. I attend my favourite artists concerts when they come to town.
Example, I once dislike Marilyn Manson. I thought his music was all about killing, witchcraft and weirdo stuff. I then saw Come White on MTV, heard the lyrics and understood the character. So i downloaded all his albums, illegally on bittorrent. After listening to them and becoming a fan, i bought each of his albums, his book, and a dvd.
Same goes for Pink Floyd. I have all their stuff now. Having listened to records of my dad’s, listening to cassettes (probably recorded off a mate!)…
This is turning into one of those rants.
Anyways, here’s how you can shield a bit of your identity. Use magnetised torrents. If you don’t know about them, they’re pretty much a link which contains has information allowing you to connect to a swarm of seeders – rather than asking a server for details.
This keeps the initial prying eyes of the govt off your bits. So to speak.
