At least if you wanted it fast...
Aren't the tube sites instantaneous, and isn't that why they're popular?

Anyway I'm all about torrents. No sweat off my cockring.

Tubes are great, if you don't care about quality. Megaupoad was consistently faster than any other site, and no goddamn waiting between D/L's. Torrents are a crapshoot. I'm sad...but shall move on.

This sucks. I relied on Megavideo as a safe source for shows I can't see regularly.

That's what I use, but that's mostly because I just get audio stuff (with occasional video stuff). Do you actually have a cockring? You know what, I don't actually want to know.

I think the only thing I have ever downloaded off that site was an O&A show....

For porn/movies/TV I have trackers (TVT for TV, Xspeeds for movies, IPT for movies/music/some porn, Cheggit for porn, What.cd for music I can't find on the others)

And if I don't want to wait, I just use a tube site for porn.....


I don't see how mega could be faster than the torrent sites I use, although that may be because there are tons of seedboxers on the ones I use... I am always maxing my DL speed when I use them...










Shame I don't have any invites...... or do I.... dun dun dun

Anonymous Goes on Megaupload Revenge Spree: DoJ, RIAA, MPAA, and Universal Music All Offline

Anonymous has sure been quiet lately, but today's federal bust of Megaupload riled 'em up good: a retaliatory strike against DoJ.gov (and plenty of other foes) leaving them completely dead.

DownForEveryoneOrJustMe.com is reporting the department's site as universally nuked, and an Anonymous-affiliated Twitter account is boasting success. This is almost certainly the result of a quickly-assembled DDoS attack—and easily the widest in scope and ferocity we've seen in some time. If you had any doubts Anonymous is still a hacker wrecking ball, doubt no more.

The combination of the hacking nebula's SOPA animosity—they've been a vocal opponent of the bill since its inception—combined with today's sudden Megaupload news has made the group bubble over: hundreds upon hundreds of Anon operatives are in a plotting frenzy, chatting about which site will go down next. In Anon's eyes, the government and media interests are responsible for the undue destruction of Megaupload (and the arrest of four of its operators), so it'll be exactly those entities that're feeling the pain right now. Pretty much every company that makes movies, TV, or music, along with the entirety of the federal government, is in Anonymous' crosshairs.

Update: Anonymous says they've also knocked off the RIAA's site—looks down for us at the moment as well.

Update 2: Universal Music Group has also fallen off an e-cliff.

Update 3: Goodbye for now, MPAA.org.

Update 4: Affected sites are bouncing in and out of life, and are at the very least super slow to load. Anon agents are currently trying to coordinate their DDoS attacks in the same direction via IRC.

Update 5: The US Copyright Office joins the list.

Update 6: This Anon sums up the mood in their "official" chat room at the moment:

Danzu: STOP EVERYTHING, who are we DoSing right now?

Update 7: Russian news service RT claims this is the largest coordinated attack in Anonymous' history—over 5,600 DDoS zealots blasting at once.

Update 8: the Anonymous DDoS planning committee is chittering so quickly, it's making my laptop fan spin.

Update 9: Major record label BMI is down for the count.

I have limited experience with this (I used it to get a few Japanese tv shows you can't buy abroad), but I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that, along with rapidshare and a few similar sites, they had the largest collection of copyrighted material in the history of mankind.

It was mostly used for that kind of stuff, not porn.

Pardon my ignorance, but do these attacks really accomplish anything? I mean, they send the message that people are pissed off but is there any more to it? A few sites are down for a while but then everyone forgets about it after a couple days. Or am I way off base?

Yesterday's protests at least were worth something. They were targeted at people fucking up the whole internet in addition to people targeting piracy.

Dumbass anon predictably just made it a piracy issue and trolled a government site. What a pack of stupid obnoxious cunts.

You say that now. But just wait until they hack their way into WOPR.
