1-5-12: Initial release.
This past week I was randomly browsing the Internet doing some research for my own knowledge, and I came across a nice blog called Opentrackers.org, which is essentially a blog that has the latest news and updates about what private trackers has limited open registrations.
If you are not familiar with private trackers, it is essentially websites that have torrent files for a variety of things, but to get into these websites can be very hard. By this I mean you got to be invited.
if you don’t know anyone who is a member of these private sites, you can never get in…unless there is open registrations!
So to help ease the pain, this blog has a frequently updated list of open private trackers. If you are looking for one to get in and see what you can find, give it a try!
5-15-11: Initial Release.
I was surfing the Internet the other day, and I was looking for a game patch for the newest Brink. What I found was a nice blog site that not only had the Brink Skidrow Update 3 patch, but it has a multitude of other things as well!
Although I wouldn’t characterize it as a hardcore warez site, it did have some items available for users who may want to download certain items, without having to go through a torrent site or a forum site.
If you are looking for game patches, movies, or some other types of media, then go to irfree.com and check it out!
Ever had it where you were in the video store, but had no idea what to rent? Or maybe you were at the library, and had no idea what type of books to read next?
Sure, there are categories or genres that define these categories, but what if you want a recommendation? You friends don’t know what you want, or maybe they do make a recommendation but it sucks? I’ve been in that boat before.
You may offer a suggestion to a friend about something that you liked, but they hate it. One example of mine is Napoleon Dynamite. Some people just don’t get it and call it stupid. However, I find it pretty funny. Get my drift?
Anyway, if you go to Tastekid.com, it is a search engine where you basically tell it what you like, and it will give you results similar to your interests. Of course, the more you feed it, the better the results. In the above picture, I typed in a favorite movie of mine, “Pulp Fiction”.
The results were astonishing! I have seen ALMOST every single move there except “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” and “Mulholland Drive”. Now the next time I am in a mood for a movie, I know exactly what to check out!
Even more surprisingly, the movies that Tastekid recommended to me, I actually enjoyed them!
Similarly, if you type in a musical artist, say Linkin Park, it will give you similar artists. There is a 90% chance that the results coming back you will like for sure. If not, then I’d say you have a very distinctive taste that no website can satisfy except yourself.
So what are you waiting for, give it a try and let me know if it is right on or bogus.
Every week I post your questions with my answers. If no one submits a question, then I will make up my own question so that people can learn.
To submit your question to V1, please go here: Underground Form
Question 1: This question is from Peter:
What is a good way to increase underground knowledge?
What do you mean by underground knowledge? Hacking, cracking, console modding, torrents, warez, piracy, getting things done, etc? I don’t know what to tell you. If you are into the P2P scene, you can’t go wrong learning from torrentfreak.com, zeropaid.com, and slyck.com as a start. If you want to learn more about technology, visit afterdawn.com or get your daily dose of cool news at digg.com.
Question 2: This question is from Mark:
I like to download movies all the time from the Internet, and I don’t feel bad at all about it. Is this normal?
It depends. Are you an ethical person or not? Obviously, you wouldn’t go into a store and shoplift a DVD movie, but yet you torrent movies from the comfort of your own home and it doesn’t bother you. Is it because it is convenient? Don’t think you can get caught? Thousands of people of downloading the same movie, so what are the odds of you getting nailed? Thinking like this helps people justify their downloads, even if it is wrong.
So in short, yes for some people downloading movies and whatever else bears no fear upon their conscience. I am going to say yes this is normal, but if you really like the movie, I suggest you buy it.
Question 3: This is from Bigmitch1998:
IM NEW??? WONT TO KNOW HOW TO RESPOND BACK IS THIER A CHAT ROOM I CAN MYBE?????LEARN HOW TO DO A FEWW THING
There is no chat room for the underground. Even if there was one, the odds of me being online at the same time that you are is very slim. If you need to contact me, there is my email on the right hand side of this blog.
This is enough questions for this week. Next week I will answer another round of questions. I hope that guys have something more interesting, as this is weak sauce. ;0
Since Demonoid is down, once again… *sigh*… I, Voltaire, want you to know where to go to get your torrents.
However, my favorite is Torrent Search Engine Searcher. Yes, long redundant-sounding name. Heres the deal: Its a search engine that uses the search engines of many other torrent sites. Its real name is TorrentScan. All I will say is you can access The Pirate Bay, Mininove, Isohunt, and many other popular torrent sites from this site.
Did you know there was supposed to be a Halo movie in the works? Well, guess what? It’s officially dead. According to Creativity Online, they talked to director Neill Blomkam on the issue, and this is what he had to say:
The film is entirely dead. In the configuration it was in. Whatever happens with that movie, assuming that movie gets made, will be a totally different configuration. It’s not so much me as the entire vessel sank. Basically, it was a combination of; there were two studios involved that weren’t getting along in the process of making it, Universal and Fox. That kind of stuff happens, it’s a fragile industry. So the film collapsed at the end of last year, and it’s been dead, ever since then. I’ll be curious to see what happens.
Well, that sort of sucks, considering he did do some Halo 3 live action promos which were so badass. Anyway, here are the video shorts he did below in the YouTube video. Pretty cool, shame it wasn’t a real movie.
