Am I taking proper precautions?

Postby HalOfBorg » Wed Sep 28, 2005 7:01 pm

I am an old WinMX fan, from days of v2.6. I still run it from time to time, but the things I share are not music or movies.

Edited: Do not reference copyright works

I get my .torrent files from the sites recommended here, and I use the "Privoxy and Tor" onion servers when I go to them, and DL them using Download Accelerator Plus through the onion servers.

I can't get Bitlord to connect through them (being an idiot myself).

I run PeerGuardian 2.0 Beta 6b, and keep it updated, when DLing BTs.

Anything else I should do? Something to do different? Or should I get used to the taste of ant-acids as I await THE LETTER???

Seems like you're paranoia level is pleanty high enough :shock: to keep you safe for now....

my advise....

Continue to keep yourself informed....ala read Slyck 8)

Migrate when pressure is applied.....

Buy your self a couple of 100+ gig external hard drives.

Get or use a dvd writer to "arcive" ( and hide if you like) your various data....

If you're this scared about only downloading 1 show....why not swim to the deep end and get anything you want......

Do a complete computer restore when ever you feel the need....

That letter, and your acompaining $3000-$7000 settelment sould at least represent $3000-$7000 worth on media don't you think?

some say the best defence is a good offence...... :wink:

Oh - my paranoia is MUCH higher than this. I do have a DVD writer, and a very well organized archive.

A few friends even have copies of my archive. We get floods here.

what you download is the biggest factor..

star trek episodes... not too risky.. but i've seen a few people get letters over it so far...

for risk i'd guess...

music.. #1

movies.. #2..

tor is crap u dont even need it, as far as downloading your torrents from the web i wouldnt even worry about that. however privoxy works quiet well keeping you anonymous to the tracker. i recommend you keep that and pg2 running. but hey you never know.
