You're trolling, but just in case someone takes you seriously, No they aren't.

Most of them are.

Saying torrents are illegal is like saying hard drives are illegal. Just because some (or most) contain illegally obtained content does not imply that the medium itself is illegal.

Just because the midget **** on my hard drive is too hardcore for some red states doesn't mean all hard drives are illegal. Cool


Internet is ilegal

For anyone who gets what it's from.

Just type those words into youtube and you will get a video of it.

Oh, I perfectly understand, Hal Morsh — a mission like this requires courage, skill, and heroism… qualities you are clearly lacking. Have you forgotten you're one of the bloody immortals!?

Ahh, you Americans! Just because you don't understand something, means that the rest of the world is wrong. Bit like public healthcare for instance P

I was giving you crap since metric time is not used for the time of day. Derp.

EveryoneAmericans relax. The date looks off because Iceland uses metric time.



I figured it was the case of some unique way of displaying their time/date.

Not really, it's just those special Americans again using MM/DD/YY, unlike the rest of the world Blink

That may be the ISO format, but I know for a fact that in my country of residence it is required by law to use the format DD/MM/YYYY on everything that is even slightly official.
I think the best way to deal with the various ways of depicting the date, is to simply be aware that in other countries and cultures they may find your way odd, like you do theirs.
I mean come on! We are EvE players are we not? We are supposed to be a bit smarter then the rest! At least smarter then Google....Twisted

A bit off topic. But since I'm OP I don't care.

Exactly why is utorrent a "horrible" client?

Because they sold out to the man.

What I have to ask myself, though, is how bored do you need to be to be reading this far back in the forum?

You mean with the advertising? You know you can disable that, right?

I still use it, to be honest. I just make sure that PeerBlock is running. I figure if they are caving to the advertisers, then the NSA and the RIAA is probably on the list as well. Am I internet paranoid? Sure. But I prefer that than the industry police knocking down my door.

In any case, my bad for the assumption.

Carry on.

Actually I just abuse my authority as a jackbooted stormtrooper of the corporate newconomy and get whatever I want over P2P
Its quite liberating seeing as we are all getting bored for the total lack of revolution occurring
My partner is beginning to question if she should have gone into electro optics afterall.
There will be a revolt soon, I just hope its the one I signed up for

Don't forget to take your vitamin supplements, sugar placebos, wear your tinfoil hat and hold on tight to your crystal pyramid. Alternatively you could find out how Peerblock works, why it's useless and that your choice of client is irrelevant to whether you will get a letter from the RIAA/MPAA, also the NSA doesn't care that you've downloaded the newest Iron Man movie, nor would Peerblock do anything to stop them from finding out if they cared.

Whatever. It's all back-ended on a Swiss VPN. Like I said in the part you neglected to quote, I fully admit to being internet paranoid. There are more layers as well, but I'm too paranoid to talk about them.

Tell that to Sweden. They pay extra for harddrives in a piracy fee.
