I thought I'd post a few links... Is supposed to be a decent torrent site... but I can't get in. Can you?

Cool Skateboarding Video Friend of mine posted this on myspace.. figured I'd share.

Excite Bike on SNES?! Never knew this existed until a day ago. Looks awesome...

Torrent Passwords seems to be password protecting their files. If you come across one... the password may be here.

WindizUpdate Update Windows with FireFox or Opera... IE is no longer needed.

YMCK has a new cd out. Check out my MySpace to hear a song from it.

Aim Ad Hack 5.0 Beta 17 Thinking about trying the new AIM Triton but have heard about the horrible ads everywhere... download this. It installs the latest version of Triton and removes everything you dont want. This is still in beta but I'm using this myself. For added Triton plugins... download Jams 2.2 which is a bunch of plugins in one installer. Adds some cool features.

See you next year...

Official Zarl William Bittorrent Post

Well I finally decided to write this up. This will cover which torrent client to use, a brief setup and how-to, and where to find these torrents. The part I really just want to post is where to get these torrents... but not everyone knows how to use torrents apparently. For those who think torrents suck and you have better methods of obtaining files... then this post isn't for you.

1. Getting Started

First you have to pick a torrent client. There's so many.. who knows which one to pick?! Well if I wrote this article 3 weeks ago I would have told you to use BitComet. But recently BitComet has been banned by a lot(not most) private torrent sites... so BC is no longer 'the best' but only for that reason. If you don't plan on using private torrent sites then I would suggest using Bitcomet .60 . Yes it says .59 is the latest version of the client but .60 is out there and eaily available(.60 was removed since this whole banning thing... you can Google why it was banned if you're interested) on other sites. Let me just throw in that I suggest trying to only use private sites. Private torrent sites get things soon after they're released and the download is almost always faster( a lot of private sites max out my connection which is 6mbit or around 780kB/s). So what client should be used if you would also like to use private sites?... µTorrent. µTorrent is a great SMALL client that uses barely any memory.. so this works well even on older computers. µTorrent has DHT support which is a trackerless network for when trackers go down. What does this mean? You'll connect to more people than usual and if a torrent looks dead... there's a good chance someone on the DHT network is still seeding. If you're a mac user... I believe Azureus is the best option... Azureus is also available for Windows and Linux.

2. Setting It Up

I'm going to go through the (short)µTorrent setup. The other clients are somewhat similar and you should be able to get a grasp of how to use them from this. So you've downloaded the µTorrent exe... now what? Double click it... now it's installed(yes that fast). There's no setup... the exe is the entire program. There's a small settings file that gets added to your computer but it adds it on its own. So now the program's open... go to Options > Preferences. The general settings are pretty much fine as is... adjust them if needed. Folder Options is up to you... I just leave mine blank and always save to the desktop. Now for Network Options... 'Port used for incoming connections' - this port has to be opened on your router/firewall or downloads WILL be slow. For help on this subject, please go to Still in Network Options we move down to bandwidth limiting. This is pretty self-explanitory... you set the max upload and download. I usually limit by upload to about 85% of my max upload to keep things smooth. I, for example, have a 45kB/s upload so I set utorrent to have a 35kB/s upload. You'll have to figure out your own number but you get the point. The rest of the options don't really need to be touched but feel free to play around with them... just remember what they were originally. So now that the settings are configured it's time to download some torrents. This brings us to section 3...

3. Where to Download

As you may or may not know... there are TONS of torrent sites all over the internet. Which ones are the best? I really don't know everything but I can tell you what I personally think is good and what I use myself.

Public Sites I find this site good for movies and games but it's lacking in the music section. Speeds are a bit slow but sometimes no one but them has what you need. and I find to both be about the same. Good general public sites although I tend to favor mininova myself. Great site that caches torrents from all sorts of sites. If you'relooking for something brand new this isn't the place for it. If you want a great list of things anywhere from 1 to 300 days old.. isohunt is the place to go.

This isn't all the public sites but I see no reason to use anything else(as public sites go anyway). For a good all-in-one search, try here.

Private Sites
*keep in mind most private sites require a 1:1 ratio which means uploading as much as you download* By far my favorite torrent site. This site requires an invite. New users have a 48hr wait limit on new torrents until they upload 7 gigs. This site is just scene releases... so it doesn't have EVERYTHING... but if you need a new program, game, movie etc you can be sure torrentleech will have it first and at very fast speeds. Is by far the best place for all your TV needs. This site also maxes out my download. Most newly aired TV shows can be found here as well as some older ones. This site has open registration sometimes... other times you need an invite. Is pretty much the ONLY place I go for music. If Oink doesnt have it goodluck finding it. That statement is a little extreme but you get my point. There is no better one place for music. You need an invite to get in... but these can be had easily by asking for an invite in their IRC channel which can be found at - #OiNK .

Other private sites worth mentioning... Great general site for all your gaming needs. and are great Xbox only sites. Nice site for TV episodes. Not as mainstream as bitmetv but has a great collection of all sorts of shows. and are good all around sites. and for all your porn needs...

and that's about all I have. There's many more sites... but what I've listed is more than a good start and I'm sure even experienced torrent users will find something here of interest.

I do have invites. I'll give them out under one condition... the people I give them to have to invite other users of this site oncethey become power users. A power user gets invites and is established at 25gigs uploaded. If you think you can easily upload 25gigs and are willing to share invites when you get them then feel free to ask for an invite in the comments. All I need is an email address. Anonymous posters will be ignored and for those that do leave a name.. please leave some sort of personal site url... myspace, blogger, live journal, random site etc so I know who you are.

Xbox 360 Cracked!... not!!!

Well anybody who's anybody should know by now that a Xbox 360 'swap disc' was released this morning and confirmed working... atleast by a few in #xbox on efnet. Even has a lil story on it.

But everyone forgot one tiny detail... In Spain and Iberoamerica, December 28 is a day for pranks, equivalent to April Fool's Day in many countries. Prank victims are called inocentes. In some cultures it is said to be an unlucky day and no new project should be started. The header of the 'swap disc' says "inocentes inocentes inocentes." How funny is that?! Yeah I know.. it's not at all. Well this post is just to confirm this is a fake... nothing more. I posted a d/l link on the digg post.. but I'll add it here. If for some reason you'd like to download this fake file.. I uploaded it here. Oh well, let's hope some sort of hack/crack comes out soon.

Download Tuesday

I have NO upload bandwidth to spare today so DT will have to wait until next week... or maybe I'll up a few files later in the week. If any of you have files to share.. post the download link in the comments. I'm sure many would appreciate that. Atleast you have the post below this to entertain you for today.

Here's a nice list of ebooks and magazines on RapidShare.

I think I'm going to be adding daily torrent links again. That seemed to be a big hit and torrents are so easy that almost everyone can use them(some people are just dumb and others run into firewall issues etc). Each day I'll pick a few big releases. If nothing good is out that day(happens on occasion) then nothing will be posted. So here's a few for today...

The Chronicles Of Narnia The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe This is the maVen xvid release. AMAZING quality... almost DVD. Grab this if you aren't seeing it in theaters!!

Aeon Flux Great xvid release from PRODiGY. Again... grab this if you aren't seeing this in theaters or just wanna see it again.

Wedding Crashers Unrated DVDRIP 1.39GB xvid version.

Victorias Secret Fashion Show HDTV Incase you missed it... or need to see it again ;)

Eminem - Curtain Call The Hits [Deluxe Edition][2CDS] If you're into this sorta thing.

(Insert Title Here)

I hate coming up with titles when I just have random stuff to post... so make one up. I had nothing to post over the weekend and didn't wanna just post to post... nah mean? So I guess I have a few sties to share today etc. I'm still trying to work on the design(it's still far from finished) and trying to work in daily schedule of specific things to post each day... like every Tuesday is 'Download Tuesday' etc etc... but I don't have any other ideas. I'd like to have TV shows shared the day after they're on TV but I would need help uploading them unless its only one or two shows a week. So if anyone has any suggestions post em in the comments. Anyone gone dumpster diving for those wendy's coupons yet and if so, how'd it go? Interested to see how people are making out with one of the best 'free' deals ever.

Free $50 GC w/ Select MP3 Player @ Best Buy Great deal if you were planning on buying an MP3 player anyway.

100pk Memorex 16X DVD+/-R $20 or 200pk Verbatim 16x DVD+/-R $42 I'd go with the Verbatims personally.

And it's Friday

Yay it's Friday! Here's some deals which I will post throughout the day, so be sure to check back if you're here early. As you can see the sites changed a bit. The top banner will change since it's a little plain... I just had to test some things out with it. I need some suggestions for content people. What specific things would you want to see on here? Besides the silly videos and random sites... is there even anything else left? As I've said before, I plan on fixing the TV section... adding more shows etc. If anyone would like to help contribute to that please let me know. All I'm looking for is decent shows uploaded to MegaUpload or something. Who wants to buy adspace?? 40x40 ad spots for $3/Month which will be placed under the first banner on the left and work down.

What's Going On?

Ok... so if you visited the site a few times yesterday you probably noticed it looking different each time. I'm still trying to decide where to go with the design/layout/etc but it's moving along. I've decided to go with a fluid design which adjusts it's size depending on the resolution or even the size of the browser window itself. Someone said to me yesterday "why are you designing around one resolution and hoping they're viewing it maximized? I thought 1998 was over..." which was the 'harsh' truth and it hit me. Most sites are designed to be viewed with a maximized browser or a higher resolution(which in some cases has to be)... but why? Main reason... because it's easy/easier. Whatever though... if it works it works. I just want my site to be done correctly... even though I have never done any sort of web design before, I'm willing to take the time to learn and do things right. My end goal is to have an eye appealing website which works in Internet Explorer, Fire Fox, Opera, and Safari(who cares about Netscape?) and can be viewable at any size/resolution. Will this happen... who knows. Yesterday was day one for me and CSS design. Today I'll be working on a minimum width issue with IE, try to fix up the side bars, and maybe even get some kind of banner up top... so wish me luck. If anyone is any good with CSS or javascript(or even AJAX) and wants to help let me know. I'd like to be able to not have to use a minwidth command for when the browser window gets small enough but rather have javascript take the left sidebar(sponsor bar) and place it under the right sidebar alowing the main body more room itself. Is this even possible??

Also I'm going to be selling adspace for the left sidebar. That bar can go allllllllllllll the way to the bottom so theres plenty of room. I'm thinking of taking the Million Dollar Homepage idea and sell 40x40 blocks of space for $3 a month(yes $3!) unless of course traffic goes up(which it soon will) so then it might go to $5. You really can't beat that. So if anyone's interested in that please let me know. First come first serve for the top spots on the sidebar.

Ok.. so I'll throw in a few deals for todays holiday shopping before I get back to work.
