:: points at the torrent links:: They scare me. The collector/packrat in me wants to download all of them. 10 GB of Spider Man comics, 12+ GB of Superman, 12 GB of Batman, 35 GB of X-men, and 6 GB of Fantastic Four.

Someone talk some sense into me. Quite honestly, I'll never read any of it (although, I'll be passing the Batman comics onto Lily, probably), so there's no reason for me to snag any of the other stuff other than to a) say I have it, and provide it to friends when they're looking for it, and b) provide yet one more (abet, 'hidden' - that is, hidden from public view) copy for global archival purposes.

Ok, b is pretty much just BS. Shhh.

You know what would be absolutely awesome? If Google has a very large set of storage systems somewhere in some mountain, downloading and storing all sorts of media, regardless of copyright. Eventually, when we all die out, the information will be found by some aliens, and they will understand and (hopefully) decide to resurrect us.

I'm a good pirate, really! See, I've already registered two mac apps, Sidetrack and Synergy. Both well worth it, and both I use daily. Next on my list is BBEdit, because, damn it's useful. Unfortunately, it's also $100 or so. Granted, I might be able to use the freeware version (TextWrangler, I believe it was), but... meh, I dunno. We'll see.

Mmm, what else. Heh, yeah, there's M$O2004, but that's no longer pirated. Well, somewhat. It's my dad's legal copy... Includes VPC7 as well, interestingly enough.

...and mmm, no, I don't think I have any other pirated software that I run at least once a week, actually. Heck, I even paid for this copy of MacOS X~

I'm not too sure how I'm going to make up for all of the music/ebooks/anime series that I have though. ^^;; There's a LOT of music there... granted, I listen to probably... 5% of it. (yeah, 80GB.. 5%.. sounds 'bout right.) The rest sits on an external hard drive and just sorta... looks pretty. I dunno. And useful, occasionally, when I need something. Which means I only save the harder-to-find stuff (kinda), that you can't find by hitting gnutella. Like classical music (30 GB~), Broadway/Off-Broadway/London Cast Soundtracks (13 GB~), Spoken word (Shakespeare, a few audio books), J-pop/Asian-pop... some artist-specific collections, including Evanescence, Monty Python, Linkin Park, Jay Chou, Tatu, Stephen Lynch, and one or two more that I don't remember...

I think... eBooks take up some 30 GB somewhere... Someone released a massive library of technical eBooks which I snatched up. And then there was another chunk of fiction eBooks that I also grabbed...

...Yeah, um, I'm really just killing time here (and boasting. Shame on me. ::smacks himself on the paw:: I am proud of my sources though~ ^^;; and being good at finding stuff online. Can I do that as a major? Information search and retrieval.). And I need to stop, 'cause there's a LOT of work to be done. Which reminds me, I may be offline starting this weekend, to keep myself from wasting time like this ^^;; group MP due monday, Physics midterm wednesday, ECE391 midterm the day after...

And I need to figure out where to study abroad. I took a scholarship (gave me $1000) but it comes with the requirement that I study abroad at some point. There's more scholarship money to come once I actually go abroad, but I'm not too sure where I want to go. Or if I even want to go. Or if I can. The minimum GPA requirement for most places is 3.0. I have... way below that. Heck, I can't even make the Taiwan GPA requirement (going there would be cool, methinks. At least I'd brush up on my chinese. Eh heh heh. It's been too long since I've spoken chinese.), which is only 2.7. I also don't know how much scholarship they'd give me for going abroad... although it's suppose to make tuition much cheaper. Oh, and the final requirement for this going abroad? I can't do summer. It has to be during fall or spring semesters. Which I don't like... I've got jobs here and.. friends.. XP

Yeah, need to stop wasting time. Off to studying. Whee.

I can't run this. No. Not if it's going to block apple.com, and not have some easily configuration method / allow list. Or quick on/off switching.

Yes, being safe is good. No, being INSANELY paranoid is BAD.

Here's PeerSniper, for PeerGuardian OSX removal.

Hah, I should have done more research.

Apparently that PeerGuardian OSX was a pretty crappy attempt, according to the forums at phoenixlabs... And thus, here's PeerProtector!

So, by count, there's currently 4 releases out there, according to vcdquality.com [link]

Yes, torrents have hit most of the BT trackers. Still, I have to congratulate the anti-piracy groups for somehow managing to keep it from appearing anywhere before, and on the day it was released.

More in a friend's-only post. 'cause my journal is google-searchable, and there's been a few times that I've suspected that evil people watch my journal and shut nice sites down. ::paranoid~ whee::
