9/28    I wanna buy the complete 4 seasons of Southpark but Amazon is kind of
        pricy. What are other places that sell Southpark DvDs cheap? ok thx
        \_ looks ~$30 cheaper
        \_ bittorrent + time = free
          \_ you know I've never used Kazaa/Napster (fear), is bittorrent
             easy to use and is it legal?
             \_ bittorent is free, easy to use, small, and spyware-free.
                You can use it to obtain materials legally and not.
                Re South Park, the easy step is getting the episodes; the
                takes-time-but-otherwise-easy step is finding/burning the
                DVD ISOs or figuring out how to burn non DVD ISOs.
             \_ Free or legal, choose one.  That being said, bittorrent hasn't
                had any lawsuits filed to my knowledge, and the only 'takedown'
                letters I've heard of are for the people running the trackers
                and torrent dump sites (which would not be you).

12/15   ausman, maybe this can help form your views on net neutrality:
        if you're bored, skip down to the iFilm example.
        \_ jim: consider the case of a private electrical utility:
           do you believe in "current neurality"? i agree if say GOOG
           were to put in a giant server complex creating a sudden local

11/28   So you know, I am going to see if the collective motd.wisdom has
        anything to add to my own research. I would think that given my
        political leanings in most areas, I would be a big fan of "net
        neutrality" but I am not, at least not so far. What is wrong with
        someone like AT&T charging more for premium internet service? Don't
        they do that already? Is there something I am missing here? -ausman

10/24   is there a command line bittorrent client that lets me download
        selective files out of a torrent, instead of the entire torrent?
        I have this torrent "Busty Conquests of Wendy Whoppers" that contains
        10+ hardcore clips of Wendy Whoppers and her 32GGG breasts, but I
        think I have 3 of these already.  I don't want to destroy my ratio
        downloading gigantic breast porn I already have.  thanks.

7/11    So what p2p systems are there besides bittorrent and soulseek?
        \_ Lots. I like eMule for when I'm looking for something random
           and hard to find. BitTorrent for everything else.
        \_ Lots. eMule is best for things that are random and hard to
           find. BitTorrent for everything else.

11/12   Anyone know of a way to watch the rights restricted content on the
        BBC' s Torchwood website. (UK only). The episodes that area already on
        BitTorrent are HIGHLY  reccomended but definitely not for the kiddies.
        Think of X-files and CSI crossed with a healthy dose of Sopranos and
        you will get my drift. With lots and lots of DR Who tie-ins along with
        some really really good eye candy.

11/11   The animated Clone Wars TV series is lol, no?
        \_ No.
        \_ I've been watching it from and I must admit it is
           exceeding my very low expectations. -ERic
            \_ Yeah I expected crap.  I've watched the movie and a couple eps
               it seems to be improving each time around.  The animation

7/27    Is The Dark Knight really the greatest movie of all time?
        It is ranked number 1 by imdb.
        \_ I did get that tingling scalp feeling from it a time or two.
           It's gotta be one of the best of its type.
           But it could have used a bit of editing down and the acting

The show was equally hilarious as its predecessor, and sported a cast of guest characters to rival Homer and pals, including the voice of Al Gore as himself in "Crimes of the Hot," and William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy in "Where No Fan Has Gone Before," a priceless spoof on Star Wars fans. The story centers around Philip Fry, who in 1999 accidentally got himself cryogenically .... ROLLING STONES-ROCK & ROLL CIRCUS Filmed as a British television special in December 1968 (which, incidentally, never aired), this good-natured circus hosted by the Rolling Stones features an all-star line-up of rock and roll greats, including Yoko Ono, mystical prog rockers Jethro Tull, Marianne Faithfull, and The Dirty Mac Amidst the fire-eaters and acrobats, the show-stopping numbers include "Sympathy for the Devil," "No Expectations," "A Quick One (While He's Away)," and others. TWISTED (CE) (WS) Against the moody, fog-laden backdrop of the San Francisco waterfront, police detective Jessica Shephard (Ashley Judd) becomes embroiled in a darkly personal hunt for a serial killer in this Hitchcockian psychological thriller directed by Philip Kaufman (THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING, QUILLS). Jessica, a San Francisco street cop, has been appointed detective by Police Commissioner John Mills (Samuel L Jackson), her surrogate father and mentor. EL CHE-INVESTIGATING A LEGEND A prismatic portrait of both the man and the myth of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara, whose Bolivian guerilla campaign ended in disaster when he was captured and shot. Since his death he is considered one of the most symbolic of political leaders, he has been an inspiration to millions of people while also being condemned by countless others. SUPER SIZE ME (PG-13) In this hilarious yet informative documentary, debut director Morgan Spurlock makes himself the victim of a cruel experiment: he puts himself on a 30-day diet of nothing but McDonald's food. Eating three meals a day exclusively from McDonald's, Spurlock's health quickly deteriorates. The film documents the process from beginning to end, with Spurlock and his doctors making observations and monitoring the changes to his energy level, moods, liver and kidney function, and obviously his weight.
