FINALLY got BitTorrent up and running again – my ticket to nicking off the multi-billion dollar porn industry by getting a few HD videos (I can’t help it if I’m hornier than some 17 year olds). I accidentally ended up downloading the WEB version of BitTorrent first! Fuck fuck fuck fuck FUCK no. There’s something more than a little bit creepy about watching your hardcore torrent videos appearing on what to all intents and purposes is a SITE. YEEK. Found the client still exists, thank fuck. And no I’m not paying for the premium version. After a bit of a shaky start it’s up and running. It’s a minefield of extra crap to carefully check you’re NOT about to install when you install BitTorrent.
What’s strangest of all though, is that it appears that Plusnet have NOT blocked ThePirateBay! I have it open right now in another tab, in ordinary Chrome – and my VPN is switched off. Just a heads up there – although they may be forced to change their policy on that one. And even more strangely, TorBrowser fails completely to kick BitTorrent in to get the torrents – so the only option I actually had left was to try to get them via an straight, ordinary connection, in an ordinary browser. But for now, it works. Time to clock up some GB!!
